Ledbury makes top 10 list of best Christmas shopping cities

The Guardian has named nearby Ledbury in Herefordshire as one of the best Christmas shopping cities in Europe! Although just a market town, Ledbury has made the top ten list alongside big hitters such as Munich and Prague.

The Guardian says “With its stilted 17th-century Market House, timber-framed buildings, great independent shops and arty vibe, the market town has bags of atmosphere. Plus it’s in a particularly lovely part of the country, should a winter walk beckon.” And who are we to argue? Ledbury is just a 30 minute drive from our lovely holiday cottages, making them the perfect place to spend a pre-Christmas break.

We have some pre-Christmas availability at all four of our holiday cottages. With our accommodation sleeping from 2 to 22 people they make the ideal base for a pre-Christmas get together with friends or family. Spend the perfect weekend shopping for Christmas gifts in Ledbury, one of Europe’s best places to shop for Christmas presents, followed by a local tipple and some hearty food in one of Ledbury’s old pubs. The next day you can burn off the previous days excesses by taking a walk in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.
