Golden Valley in England
West Herefordshire, Peterchurch, Herefordshire, England,
The Golden Valley lies between the Black Mountains of Wales, and the Wye Valley in the west of Herefordshire, England. A haven of peace and tranquility, the deeply rural area is approximately 9 miles long and 6 miles wide. Running through the valley is the River Dore which surprisingly gives the area its name. A thousand years ago the Norman invaders mistook the name for D'or meaning Golden, whereas in reality the river was called after the Welsh word Dwr meaning water. No matter the name stuck and the Golden Valley is still to this day a glorious treasure waiting to be discovered.

Walkers may take the trails through the gently rolling countryside from Hay-on-Wye in the north, to Pontrilas in the south. Or hike along the mountains on the Offa’s Dyke path. But the valley offers more than walking to the discerning visitor with ruined castles, ancient churches and fine gardens. And for those who prefer more active pursuits there is horse riding, cycling, canoeing, fishing, golfing, gliding ....all available in Herefordshire's hidden treasure the Golden Valley.....
