Activities

Ross-on-Wye and Hereford are the nearest towns, the latter home to a grand cathedral that dates back to 1079. Its most famous treasure is Mappa Mundi, a medieval map of the world dating from the 13th century. Renowned Symonds Yat is also nearby – a quaint village on the banks of the Wye, straddling the river and thus the border of England and Wales. It's also a popular spot for hiring a canoe (01600 891100) and journeying downstream, where you can be picked up at a later point and transported back. Head to the Royal Forest of Dean, meanwhile, for mountain biking.

Food & Drink

Breakfast and dinner is served in the atmospheric hotel restaurant. A floor-to-ceiling bay window let’s you soak up the superb view, while the walls, where not covered by original Georgian bookshelves, are dotted with intriguing paintings by Andrew’s grandmother, who studied with Henry Moore. The food, meanwhile, couldn't be much more local if you tried – most of the produce comes from Pengethley Farm Shop (01989 730430) right next door, while eggs come from Brooks County House's own 40 hens. They grow their own vegetables and herbs, too, and, if that's not enough, they even make their own wine!

Getting There

Brooks Country House is located just off the A49 between Hereford and Ross on Wye. It is adjacent to Pengethley Farm shop and brown tourist signs point in to the main entrance. The nearest train station is in Hereford Town (0845 748 4950) but its still a 25-minute or more drive away. There is a taxi rank outside the station building or you can get a Stagecoach bus (Stagecoach West service) to Ross-on-Wye and ask to get off at Pengethley Manor stop, which is just a few hundred yards from Brooks County House.
