Ross-on-Wye is a small market town with several transport links. Unfortunately, there is no rail station, making a car among the best ways to explore the region. You'll find adequate parking throughout the town centre itself. Visitors from London should arrive via the A40. Buses do link the town with Hereford and Gloucester, but timetables aren’t very convenient. What’s more, a car will give you the freedom to travel to major attractions in and around the Wye Valley. The closest airport is Bristol, but there are no direct links between the two.

Ross-on-Wye sits on a pretty stretch of the meandering River Wye. Surrounded by hills and charming countryside, Ross-on-Wye was one of the pioneering tourist towns of England. As early as 1745, visitors from London were drawn to the advertised boat trips along the river. This soon became known as the ""Wye Tour"". Much of this charm still remains in the town’s manicured lawns and pretty buildings, and you can take the same tour today. It's a restful and peaceful stay that’s perfect for those looking to get away from it all. Our hotels at Voyage Privé are perfectly suited for long walks in the countryside followed by delicious, locally sourced meals.
While Ross-on-Wye exudes its own serene charm, it’s a perfect base for grand days out. Follow the river south and you’ll enter the Forest of Dean, a large stretch of scenic woodland. The Forest of Dean is bursting with history and cultural attractions. These include Goodrich Castle, a perennial favourite with children that rests dramatically on a craggy bedrock. Travel even further south and you'll find the immensely pretty Symonds Yat. This is among the top spots for hikes and walks in the region. Remember your cameras as the views are breathtaking!
