The Local Area

The Golden Valley of Herefordshire is very much a rural, farming community, with the Black Mountains of Wales in the West guarding over the area.

For such a quiet peaceful location there is plenty to do not only at night while imaging or observing the night sky from the dark site where Astro Photo Camp is being held.

We are lucky enough to have an abundance of Red Kites in the area that soar through the sky, unmistakable from it’s size and forked tail.

If you wish to bring your partner who has no interest in the night sky, there are several beautiful B&B’s in the area.

The Bridge Inn. Less than a mile from Astro Photo Camp.

The Bridge Inn is an award winning public house with a mouth watering menu where all meats and vegetables have been sourced locally. Sit outside in the beer garden and chat among friends as the Escley Brook quietly babbles by.

There is also free WIFI access at the pub, a great place to upload your images over a meal or a drink and a chat.

The owner of the Bridge Inn also has accommodation in a separate building just 100 yds from the pub and just under a mile from Astro Photo Camp. To make a booking for the B&B, please click here.


Grove Farm is another B&B venue that is close to the Astro Photo Camp site. Please click here to view more about Grove Farm.
