Hellens is a lovely Tudor mansion lived in by its owners in the depths of the Herefordshire countryside. Nice little café with seating outside as well. We booked onto a tour and then went for a cream tea although the sponge cakes did look good as well. The gardens are worth a walk round and there is an interesting herbal... More

This is a small, intimate house and the guided tour is extremely interesting. The grounds are delightful and the home made cake that accompanies the tea is particularly recommended. We have been to musical evenings here as well which have a lovely atmosphere.

We found Hellens a great place to visit very unlike many other stately homes. The house itself is eccentric and has lots of items from a long history. The guide was excellent interesting and querky like the house itself. The range if paintings was stunning in such a small house. We didn't have anything in the tea room but it... More

Four of us visted on Easter Sunday. Had tea and cakes in front of a blazing log fire before going on the tour of the house. The tour lasted about an hour and Donna, our guide, gave us an interesting talk about the history of Hellens and its various owners through the ages.

not the best house/home visited this holiday may be i'm being harsh but we were guided round by a volunteer who was still learning the history so had to keep refering to her notes but the place was ok.

We wanted something to do local to Ledbury and came across this place on line. They just run tours at set times on weekends so plan for that and check the times ahead. We had a quaint tea and cakes while waiting which was very nice, albeit very slow to be served, great cakes though! The tour was excellent and... More

We didn't even know this was there until I went searching for local country homes that were open to he public. So glad that we found it! You have to go on a tour to enter the house and they run hourly from 2pm. The guide was very knowledgeable and the history of the house is fascinating. It's well worth... More

I liked the way it felt lived in - as parts of it still are. The guide made it interesting and tea and cake in the garden made an ideal finish to the trip.
