Golden Valley Llamas
EWYAS HAROLD, HEREFORDSHIRE
The Llama trek experience takes 3 hours. Help call the llamas in from the field, a bribe of a mouthful of their specialist feed, perhaps supplemented with some carrot might help, before feeding and haltering them. Learn how to groom a llama and receive a talk about them. Each llama, on its lead rope, will follow you as you set off at a gentle stroll on roads and across open land with delightful views. On return to the farmyard the llamas are rewarded with some more food before you release them to stroll back to their field.

About the area
Herefordshire is split in two by the River Wye which meanders through the county on its way to the Severn and the sea. Largely rural, with Hereford, Leominster, and Ross-on-Wye the major towns and cities, its countryside and ancient villages are the county’s major asset.
Visitors can take advantage of a number of the trails which will guide them through areas of interest. Those especially interested in historic village life should try the Black and White Village Trail, which takes motorists on a 40-mile drive around timber-framed villages from Leominster to Weobley (established in the 17th century and known as a centre of witchcraft in the 18th), Eardisley (where the church boasts a 12th-century carved font), Kington, Pembridge and others. Other trails include the Mortimer Trail, the Hop Trail and the Hidden Highway, which goes from Ross-on-Wye to Chester. Hereford has a small Norman cathedral, which has a great forest of pink sandstone columns lining the nave. Inside is a chained library, a 13th-century Mappa Mundi (map of the world) and one of only four copies of the 1217 version of the Magna Carta.
