Ross on Wye is a small market town nestling alongside the meandering River Wye. It is an ideal base to explore the surrounding countryside, including the Forest of Dean, The Brecon Beacons, Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds. Also a great stopping off point for trips to Cardiff or even racing at Chepstow or Cheltenham.

The Kings Head Hotel, which dates back to the 14th century, is situated in the most picturesque street in the centre of Ross. Until the advent of the railways in the 19th century, the Hotel was a small Coaching Inn. During Georgian times an extra storey was added and the facade changed to the current one. The Kings Head has open fireplaces and a wealth of oak beams. A tunnel reputedly runs in the cellar past the 12th century well to the old Saracens Head Inn. Occasionally there have been reports of ghosts and the clatter of horses from time past. We aim to bring the warmth of welcome and hospitality of a bygone age with convenience of the 22nd Century
