classicAbout Dilwyn

Dilwyn is a beautiful rural parish in the north west of Herefordshire in the United Kingdom. It is 9 miles south west from the market town of Leominster and 12 miles to the north west of Hereford city. Dilwyn is a relatively large parish at 2,363 hectares and is very sparsely populated with only 0.3 people per hectare. It is one of the pretty half-timbered villages that are prevalent in this part of Herefordshire and, as such, forms part of The Black and White Trail that leads visitors through the area.

pastora3lThe area has much to offer to visitors who seek beautiful countryside, a slower pace of life and relatively quite roads.

Mentioned in the Domesday book, present day Dilwyn is the result of more than a 1,000 years of settlement. Because of this, Dilwyn has many historic buildings and interesting features. The central village itself is designated as a conservation area. However, Dilwyn civil parish includes much more than the central village. Within the 6400 acres of the parish are the hamlets of Sollers Dilwyn, Little Dilwyn, The Haven, Hill Top, The Hurst, Headland, Bearton, Bidney, Henwood, Stockmoor and Stockingfield amongst others. There are over 200 dwellings with a population of 758 (2001 census).

Dilwyn is an ideal starting point for touring the local trail of black and white villages. Time spent by visitors looking at the church of St Mary, examining the pretty local buildings and cottages, strolling on the green and perhaps visiting the pub and its garden will give a taste of the desirable quality of life enjoyed by this community.

The Notice Boards on the village green have information for visitors on the reverse sides.
