The village of Hoarwithy lies on the River Wye in Herefordshire, England, and boasts a number of noteworthy historic buildings, such as St Catherine’s Church and the Old Mill, a former working mill that has been transformed into a guesthouse of some repute that attracts a large number of regular holidaymakers every year.
Hoarwithy is situated in the lovely and peaceful Wye valley, just about 4 miles from Ross-on-Wye and a 10 minute drive from the city of Hereford. The Old Mill now boasts a butterfly garden and wildlife pond, but when it was originally built it would have had a waterwheel driving its mechanisms to grind wheat or spin wool.
A tranquil spot in rural Herefordshire
The area is popular with birdwatchers and walkers, who come to admire the large variety of bird species and plants found locally. The Herefordshire Nature Trust regularly awards local guesthouses and other establishments with incentives in the form of awards to look after, conserve and enhance wildlife habitats.
As a result, great spotted woodpeckers and gold finches, grey wagtails and long tailed tits have chosen to remain at Hoarwithy – much to the delight of visitors.
St Catherine’s Church is a marvel of architectural blends. Originally just an ordinary 19th century chapel built by Reverend Thomas Hutchinson in 1840, St Catherine’s was later “tarted up” or beautified, as modern slang would have it, under orders of Prebendary William Poole, who introduced Italian Romanesque and Byzantine elements to the church in 1870, having complained endlessly of the chapel’s distinct lack of beauty and style.
The dangers of self-catering
If you stayed at the Old Mill and strolled into the bog garden with the intention of enjoying a few minutes’ peace before breakfast with your kids, but found another guest’s dog took exception to you and bit you, you could make an accident injury claim in Hoarwithy and get compensation from the negligent dog owner.
