Abbey Dore & Gwatkin Red Cow Restaurant

Walk Length 4.38 miles (2 hours).

A friend and I recently embarked on a walk outside of our usual stomping grounds. With the promise of a delightful lunch at Gwatkin’s Red Cow restaurant, we climbed the steep hill and were rewarded with breath-taking views at the summit across to the Black Mountains. As we descended through lush woodlands, we savoured the scenery and paused for a well-deserved cuppa on a charming bridge overlooking gurgling waters.

Our journey continued along a winding path beside the sparkling River Dore, where we were greeted by adorable new-born lambs. Our adventure culminated at the beautiful Moorhampton Court Farm and The Red Cow restaurant, Alas, we couldn’t indulge in the restaurant’s tempting selection of locally-produced ciders and perrys’ from Gwatkin’s own cider mill, as we were both driving. However, we highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. The Red Cow at Abbey Dore is simply a must-visit spot, offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere and delicious local food that will tantalize your taste buds.
