OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

On the outskirts of the pleasant historic town of Ross-on-Wye (a ten-minute walk away), The Bridge House is located just off the A40 on a main road into the town, although there's little traffic most of the time. Herefordshire is much quieter, cheaper and more rural than hotspots like the Cotswolds, even in high summer.

By car: just over an hour from Birmingham, under 2 hours from Oxford and 3 hours from London. Free parking on-site.

By train: London Paddington to Hereford takes under 3 hours. The hotel is a 30-minute taxi ride from the station. Book trains to Hereford.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Extensively refurbished in 2016 by owners Kevin and Kathryn Whyte, Bridge House has traditional, tasteful décor throughout. Wood and stone floors, pale or earthy wall colours, some beams, ornate mirrors, a ceiling light fixture made from antlers, a leather sofa in the lounge - it's all spotless and well maintained. There are lovely views of the river and Ross, and St Mary's church lit up at night is nice to see.

THE FACILITIES

Being essentially a B&B, there aren't any particularly special facilities. There's a residents' lounge, conservatory, dining room and terrace where breakfast is served, a car park and sizeable garden.
