Ross-on-Wye is situated in the South Herefordshire countryside right alongside the M50 which links South Wales with the Midlands. It is a lovely old town which sits up high on a sandstone cliff overlooking the River Wye. Alongside the river there are gardens, lovely riverside paths and benches along the way for you to sit and enjoy your tranquil surroundings.
Ross-on-Wye has a long and varied history and first appears in records of 1016. It has a 13th Century Church and a Market House from the 17th Century. Ross-on-Wye boasts to having been one of the first recorded attempts to beautify a town for the benefit of its residents.
Originally it was known as "Ross" but became "Ross-on-Wye" in 1931 due to confusion with other places of the same or similar name. Ross-on-Wye came into the forefront of British tourism when it became a part of the Wye Tour and it remains a popular tourist centre right up to the present day.
