Short Break to Warner Leisure Hotel, Holme Lacy, Herefordshire

Rooms now only available on request - may incur a supplement
Holme Lacy is a Grade I listed mansion. It was completed in 1674 and was reportedly visited by Charles II, and William Pitt (1st Earl of Chatham) who held cabinet meetings in the gardens. Set in 50 acres of gardens in the Wye Valley, Holme Lacy is one of Herefordshire’s treasures. There’s plenty to do, with daily entertainment, an indoor pool, and a choice of restaurants, although we will be seated as a group in the Bistro restaurant. The hotel also arranges visits around the area, including to the Cathedral City of Hereford.
