We, as a family of three, have been staying at Benhall Farm for the best part of 9 years now. We have family in Ross-on-Wye and aim to visit at least twice a year and on each occasion always plan to stay at Benhall Farm.
We could stay at numerous other self-catering or bed and breakfast establishments within Ross or the surrounding area. Some would say they are more modern, cheaper, better located, more facilities, etc etc. But, and it is a big but, none of them would have the character or homely feel that Benhall Farm has to offer. You will not find 'square' modern rooms at Benhall. You will not find 'boring' corridors filled with doors to 'boring' rooms at Benhall. You will not find 'boring' travelling salesmen walking around in their Matalan suits with cheap plastic briefcases trying to look cool. If you want any of these go to a Travelodge.
If you want to feel as though you are at home, and not away with one of the many 'Matalan Men'. then Benhall Farm is the place.
It is without doubt, wonderful.
I am being slightly selfish and I don't really want to 'big' Benhall Farm up too much. But I want to keep this place as it is, wonderful and special. I love driving down the quarter of a mile driveway to the farm and parking up my dirty Land Rover. It looks the part. I don't want to see clean Audi's or BMW's there with the suit jacket hanging up in the back. They are best parked up elsewhere, well away from Benhall Farm.
Benhall Farm is a gem, hard to describe in words. You need to go there to feel it, to touch it, to smell it. Well it is a working farm.
PS; If you normally wear a suit, leave it at home. Pack your wellies and grab some of Benhall Farms wonderful 'outdoor feeling' with both hands and enjoy it. Trust me, you will never want to stay in a 'square' room again.
