One of Herefordshire’s largest towns, Leominster, is blessed with the Welsh border to the west and Worcester to the east. Hereford, the cathedral city of the county is just a short hop in the car south.

Moving to Leominster
Leominster’s pace of life is championed by the community and a stroll throughout the market town, rife with independent stores and cafes is the perfect place to while away an afternoon. The Bell Inn, with its in-house cider press, is a real favourite.
Boasting a rural setting, Leominster offers a multitude of outdoor pursuits. Furthermore, the Brecon Beacons and Malvern Hills are only an hour away.
Leominster Train Station
Some people complain that Leominster isn’t very well connected, despite having a train station. However, for others, this is exactly why it is celebrated. Cycling or using the local bus service is one of the favourite ways to get around. Ludlow and Hereford are a short train journey away and Worcester is 45 minutes in the car on a good day.
Leominster Infants and Leominster Junior are both popular local schools with parents and are rated as ‘good’ by Ofsted. Earl Mortimer College and Sixth Form is the local secondary school and was voted as one of the Top 100 Most Improved Schools in the UK. There are also a number of local independent and special schools including Lucton School, Cambian Hereford School and Westfield School.
Buying and Renting in Leominster
The majority of the property market in Leominster is made up of terraced homes, semis, detached and townhouses. However, because of the history of the town and rural location, there are many period and quirky properties available.

Detached homes of all shapes and sizes, along with townhouses, are upwards of £250,000.
The rental pool in Leominster is typically quite small, with apartments and flats a rarity. Two-bedroom homes fall between £400 and £550 pcm, with larger family homes over and above £800.
