Gladestry is a small village and parish in eastern Radnorshire, close to the border with Herefordshire at the end of the Hergest Ridge. The larger civil community also includes the ancient parishes of Colva, Michaelchurch-on-Arrow and Newchurch.

The village is part of a thriving farming and agricultural community, and a local quarry. The village comprises a parish church, the Royal Oak pub, a primary school which educates around 50-60 children and a village hall. In the 2001 census the population of the community was 419.[1]

Offa's Dyke Path passes through the village and there are various footpaths and bridleways for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

The Grade II* listed 17th century manor house Baynham Hall is located in the hamlet of Michaelchurch-On-Arrow.[2]
