Newent Lake Sculpture Trail

Did you know that whichever direction you are coming from the Daffodil Line gives you around an hour in Newent, before your return journey? Longer if you like of course, but an hour is the perfect time for a wander around the lake and a chance to admire the nature-inspired sculptures along the way.

What’s New? The Ark Cafe: Newent

Newent’s much-missed Good News Centre Cafe has reopened as the Ark Cafe with the same warm welcome, fabulous food and drink, and new children’s play areas indoors and out, including soft play and a sensory room.

And the Winner is . . . .

The annual Newent Art Competition, organised by Hannah Ferguson of the Secret Gallery, has been bringing together local artists and art lovers for eight years now. It’s a fabulous celebration of local creativity and colour and this year’s competition was one of the best. 

H.Art Week – Art in Herefordshire 2 – 10 September 2023

Herefordshire Art Week is a nine-day art trail open to all.  Artists, craftmakers and creative businesses open their private studios every day from 11am – 5pm at least. Galleries put on special events, whilst groups get together to put on one-off exhibitions, in a wonderful mix of interesting venues. 

Beers on the Bus: The Royal Oak Much Marcle

 A 200-year-old ale house standing between Preston Cross and Much Marcle, four miles southwest of Ledbury, The Royal Oak sits on the edge of farmland.  The Daffodil Line route passes by the car park, and although there is no formal bus stop or sign, if you ask the driver in advance he will stop as close to the pub as the traffic conditions safely allow.
