About the Car Tours
We recommend travelling each of the three routes on different occasions since there is so much to see and take in, including the option of walks in adjacent areas. Much of the driving is on country roads which in places are narrow and winding and care has to be taken in parking considerately. Many of the stops only have space for one vehicle to tuck in by the roadside. Although the heritage is in a rural area which is difficult for those with impaired mobility, a significant proportion of the sites do have a viewpoint close to or at the stopping point, allowing features to be appreciated, particularly in combination with the imagery in the app.
The route does not directly pass any cafes or public toilet facilities. However, close to part 1, there are limited cafe and toilet facilities at the National Trust site at Weir Gardens (except in mid-winter), a pub at Stretton Sugwas, and a retail and cafe complex at Oakchurch on the A438 just south of Staunton on Wye and a pub in the village. In part 2, there is a pub and shop at Almeley, pub and cafe at Eardisley west of the route, and extensive facilities in Kington north-west of the end of this route. The attractive village of Weobley is also easily reached. The start of part 3 is not far from the famous village of Pembridge whilst several villages near or on the route including Shobdon, Kingsland, Yarpole and Mortimers Cross have pubs.
