About Eardisland

Voted as 'the prettiest village in the Midlands' by a TV poll, Eardisland is well worth a visit. It is favoured as being one of a trio of Black and White villages along the valley of the River Arrow.

There is an abundance of charming black and white properties both in and around this village, many of which are scattered along the banks of the river. Such individual siting of these houses leads one to suspect that they mostly stand on their original medieval croft.

Rivers dominate this area, particularly the mighty River Wye which rambles it's way throughout the county. Eardisland is one of the few villages in this region that actually stands on a river. Luckily, this stream, unlike many others, does not flood. The Arrow is infact the stream that was crossed by Henry Tudor on his way to the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485.

If black and white properties are your particular interest then a visit to Eardisland and its adjacent quintessentially English villages
is to be highly recommended.

There are plenty of hospitable inns throughout this pretty area and excellent shopping facilities can be found in the nearby towns of Leominster and Hereford
