Eye is a tiny village in Herefordshire, with a small church, a few houses and the surrounding farmland. It is set amongst meadows strung with streams which run south to feed the River Lugg. Eye is due north of Leominster on the lane between Luston to the west and Ashton to the east.

Berrington Hall is nearby; a house built for Thomas Harley by Henry Holland, with gardens landscaped by Capability Brown.

Eye has a historic small church with a square tower and some fine effigies; beside it is Eye Manor, noted for its fine decorated plaster ceilings.

There was once a railway station in the village.
