Hereford

The Hereford Estates incorporate The Guy's Estate and The Cradley Estate, the latter purchased in 1991 from The Mercantile and General Reinsurance Company.

Duchy of Cornwall, Hereford

The Guy’s Estate extends to 4,601 hectares, consisting mostly of Grade 2 land, and all set in the peaceful and beautiful surroundings of the Herefordshire countryside. It covers some 15 miles from the southern end at Ross-on-Wye to just north of Hereford, and falls into six sections, mostly agricultural, with around 500 hectares of spectacular woodland and a scattering of residential properties. 

“The Cradley Estate extends to 750 hectares, mainly consisting of Grade 3 land and incorporating significant woodland features.”

There are 130 tenancies of various kinds on the Guy's Estate, from farms that have been passed down through generations of the same family, right through to barns converted into new housing and business developments. Benefitting greatly from the inherent fertility and workability of its soil, the landscape is of notably high quality.

One of the jewels in the crown of the Hereford Estate is Harewood Park, a group of former homesteads and parkland brought back to life by the Duchy of Cornwall through the conversion of redundant farm buildings into workplaces and homes.
