On Saturday 19th September, as part of Heritage Open Day Week, there will be an 'Apples for Health' day at Grange Court. It will run from 10am until 3pm to complement the Leominster in Bloom Plant and Craft Fair on The Grange.

Apple picking will be arranged during the week before at the Millennium Green Community Orchard - contact Grange Court for details. These apples will be juiced on the Saturday providing an opportunity to taste local heritage varieties.

In addition there will be a range of apple health products to help understand how Grange Court lived through the Great Plague.

North Herefordshire is blessed with Berrington Hall and Croft Castle, with Lower Brockhampton just a short drive away.

No matter where you are in the UK you can always trust the National Trust to offer a magical experience for all the family.

That's no different in Herefordshire and we're particularly proud of the properties visitors can enjoy on our #greenanddelicious land.

NT Croft Castle offers 1500 ares of historic parkland as well as a country home. One of the trees in the park is more than 1000 years old!

Berrington Hall is a Georgian mansion sitting within 'Capability Brown's' final garden and offers landscape and impressive interiors and collections.

And finally NT Brockhampton, a 1,700-acre farmed estate with Lower Brockhampton Manor House at its heart, a romantic timber-framed house dating back to the late 14th century.

If you plan to visit this Autumn you will need to book a timed ticket. But first up... #visitherefordshire - we promise you won't regret it!

Hurrah! Our Old Stables Gallery will reopen on Tuesday 1st September!

The exhibition "Costa Tropical" will run from the 1st September until 19th September Monday to Saturday 9.30am until 2pm.

Costa Tropical will be the second showing of new paintings and art works by John Barrett here at the Old Stables Gallery. This recent collection exhibited for the first time in Leominster represents a six-month intensive period in the La Herradura, Costa Tropical, (Granada), in Spain. The art works were created between September 2019 and March 2020.

La Herradura, (or Horseshoe Bay), is a geographically unique area of Europe as it has a sub tropical climate with amazing flora and fauna due to it’s kind temperatures throughout the year. The area south of Granada in the winter ranges from very high snow capped mountains of the Alpujarras down to the lush ‘Costa Tropical’ of La Herradura. John responded energetically to this benign climate to evoke the vibrancy of colour, light and striking contrasts of scale within the botanical planting. With temperatures of around 25c in La Herradura throughout the winter months the paintings capture the exotic, dream like atmosphere of this wonderful part of Europe.

The themes suggest a mix of natural forms, small holding agricultural landscaping, people working and people playing, as this is a popular tourist area. The ideas of work and play co-existing within this tropical ‘hinterland’ suggested a new dimension to meaning behind creating a Garden of Eden.

This is a must see show to get away from the post Covid 19 blues and enter the world of sunshine and vivid blue skies of the ‘Costa Tropical’!

The Gallery is open during TIC open hours. John will be in residence on certain days.

Entry is free and you do not need to prebook entry. We politely ask that you please wear a face covering at all times whilst inside the TIC and Gallery (unless you unable to) and that you adhere to our 2m social distancing measures.

A lovely little visit to NT Berrington Hall today. Taking full advantage of the last day of Eat Out to Help Out by consuming as much cake as possible 🤭

We just love the apple trees in the courtyard.
