Days Out - Kington

Well this good weather looks set to stay as we head into August, so for those that don't want to roam far in the heat, our nearest town is Kington, a solid walk (wear a hat) or a short drive will bring you to this historic market town, surrounded by undulating hills and with a lovely mix of independent shops and cafes.

It is now well known for its walking festival which happens next month and is recognised as a "walkers welcome" town. Maybe not perfect for a long walk, but the town also boasts the UK's only traditional clog maker Jeremy Atkinson. The walking festival is opened with a goulash evening and music by the Kington Community Choir and is always well attended; so get your boots on!

If you are joining us later on  in the Autumn you can look forward to the Kington Horse and Agricultural Show which is a  long standing country show steeped in tradition and a great family day out attracting visitors from all over the country.  

Just a few titbits to tempt you with this month, but if you'd like a little more information about Kington visit  www.kingtontourist.info

I hope you are enjoying this fantastic summer and I look forward to welcoming our guests throughout August

Best wishes,
Jo.
