Location & Description

How Caple is a very desirable rural hamlet surrounded by rolling Herefordshire countryside and lying close to the river Wye. The popular village of Fownhope is approximately 3 miles away and has an excellent range of village amenities including a village shop, church, primary school, a medical centre, pubs and a health and leisure complex. The towns of Ledbury (approx. 8 miles), Ross on Wye (approx. 5 miles) and the city of Hereford (approx.10 miles) all provide further extensive facilities including mainline railway stations in Ledbury and Hereford.
