Weobley, pronounced 'Webley', is one of the largest villages and civil parishes in Herefordshire, situated just eight miles away from Leominster and 12 miles north-west of Hereford. The village name comes from the Saxon words 'Wibba' and 'ley', with Wibba being a proper proper name and ley meaning a clearing or glade in a woods, so simply put, Weobley means 'Wibba's woodland clearing'.
Our quiet picturesque village sits in the very heart of Herefordshire's lowlands, an area characterised by wide river valleys, arable farming, low hedges, steep wooded hills, beautiful orchards and extensive hop yards. Over the years the village has changed from being a medieval wool trading centre, through glove making and ale brewing to the friendly village that it is today. We even saw a visit from King Charles I, who stayed in the village following the battle of Naseby in 1645.
