I can highly recommend this great bed and breakfast that then turns into a restaurant if that is what you want. Originally I had been looking for a house to rent for a long weekend for 4 couples, but could not find a house with enough bathrooms and so decided to go for bed and breakfast instead so that we al had our own bathrooms.
Set in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside this place is perfect if there are a few of you who want to all stay in the same place. there is a nice big living room with a fire place. well stocked up with books and games, something to suit all ages.
there are 4 rooms all very well appointed to a high standard of workmanship, very comfortable beds, clean and minimalistic décor which is very restful. 2 rooms have views over the countryside and the other 2 of the owners garden. there are 2 smaller rooms which have slightly larger shower rooms, and the large rooms have smaller shower rooms. The loft room was my favourite,very spacious, but the downside is that there is no wardrobe, only hanging hooks, which might be an issue if you are intending to stay for several days and have a lot of clothes with you.
Ali and Andy the owners are very welcoming and helpful. they prepared food for 10 of us on the Saturday night, it was really good clean food, well cooked and tasty, they did not mind that we brought a lot of champagne and wine with us and chilled this in the fridge.
Breakfast was delicious, and hot, you could tell it was good quality locally sourced as described on the website, and served at a time to suit us, which makes a nice change.
We had a fantastic weekend, very relaxed, easy going atmosphere. We visit Ross on Wye every year and will definitely stay here again, it was really great.
thank you Ali and Andy for a great weekend.
