Living in the Three Counties
The Three Counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire offer an idyllic and affordable lifestyle, whilst Worcester and Hereford themselves have great relocation appeal as vibrant and historic Cathedral cities.
An increasing number of buyers are choosing to relocate to Worcester, Hereford and the surrounding villages, to capitalise on the current, competitive house prices and the more leisurely pace of life. One key difference when compared to other parts of the country is that once people move here, they often stay long term. It is not unusual to sell houses that owners have lived in for over 30 years having relocated to the county from elsewhere.

Agriculture remains a significant industry with cider apples, hops, Herefordshire cattle and Ryeland sheep being notable exports. Well known food fairs are held annually in Ludlow and nearby Abergavenny, and most towns have excellent regular farmers markets.
Culturally Herefordshire has a lot to offer. There are several good theatres dotted around the county with the Courtyard Theatre in Hereford being most notable. The internationally renowned Three Choirs Festival, Hay-on-Wye Book Festival, Ledbury Poetry Festival and Art Week are just a handful of many annual cultural events.
Worcestershire covers more than 700 square miles and is one of the country’s most beautiful counties, perhaps best known for its idyllic villages situated amidst stunning scenic landscape and its noted Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hills of the county form a natural boundary around the county of Worcestershire, The Malverns to the South West, Bredon Hill to the South East, and the Clent and Lickey Hills to the North; with The Severn and Teme river valleys on the West side.
Worcestershire boasts a number of high achieving independent schools, acclaimed professional county sports clubs and facilities, an array of leisure, recreational and country pursuits, a keen arts & cultural scene including numerous celebrated festivals and a fantastic supply of local food producers.
At its heart, the majestic Cathedral City of Worcester also boasts great historical significance being the site of the end of the English Civil War with the Battle of Worcester in 1651.There is a wealth of historical architecture throughout the county; perhaps most notably recorded by the magnificent Norman/Gothic Cathedral which is the striking backdrop of the legendary Worcestershire County Cricket Ground.
