The Heart of England/Peak District
The City of Hereford lies at the geographical heart of Herefordshire and boasts a wonderful Catherdral which is home to the world famous and historic Mappa Mundi and Chained Library Exhibition. A foot friendly city with museums and rivers walks and busy but still quaint shopping. You will find weekly farmers markets here as well and the daily indoor market in the traffic free high town. The Three Choirs and The Festival of Herefordshire are just two of the annual events held in the heart of the city.
An easily accessible train station provides the transport to visit towns and cities further afield. The historic market towns of Ledbury, Leominster and Church Stretton are nearby as is the famous 'book capital' of Hey on Wye.
Ross on Wye
Ross on Wye is at the heart of the Wye Valley in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As a popular tourist venue and part of the famous 'Wye Tour' visitors have been coming here for centuries. The stunning River Wye meandering its way through the town is undoubtedly one of it hightlights.
Within a very short walk from the streets of town you can sit on the river bank to picnic or walk and explore the vast amount of bird and wildlife here. The river is very popular with many canoeists and families who gently pass along on their way to the next rest or watering hole! There are of course the ones who like to take the challenge of the rapids which provides much entertainment for the viewer on the riverbank! Or discover the beauty of the river from the river cruiser tours at Symonds Yat. A spectacular place to visit and home to the perigrine falcons breeding area and only 15 mins drive from this holiday home.
In and around town, Ross has many places to eat and drink from cafes and coffee shops showcasing local home made produce to traditional English pubs, hotel restaurants, and individual Indian, Thai, Chinese cuisines.
It has two supermarkets, weekly and farmers markets to very good local craft shops as well has high street names. The remowned 'Labels' shopping outlet is 5 mins out of town and is a weekly attraction for many coach loads of visitors. Antique shops abound and it has won the Britain in Bloom Award. The Visitors Centre is a hive of information and second to none.
In the pretty little award winning village of BISHOPSWOOD, 15 mins drive from the town of Ross is where you will find The Roost at Vine Tree. Although in the postal area of Herefordshire, the village lies to the northern edge of The Forest of Dean and is on the Welsh Borders making it the perfect base from which to explore the Forest of Dean, The Malvern Hills, The Black Mountains, Chelthenham, Gloucestershire, Chepstow, Monmouthshire and Abergavenny. The pretty town of Newent with its heritage museum and birds of prey visitors centre is also close by.
Within Bishopswood village itself, and a lovely walk from The Roost, you will find our local shop/off licence providing newspapers, freshly baked bread, daily essentials and hot/cold take away food. There is a canoe launch centre and access to to fishing on the river (permits from the local shop). All Saints Church is nestled within the trees and has a very warm welcome for visitors.

"Fab to be back, we had a brilliant stay - the cottage and hosts are marvellous."
This was our second holiday here and we couldn't wait to go back. Everything was just as perfect as before - Carol and Barry are fantastic people and the perfect hosts, and the cottage is extremely comfortable, cosy and well equipped. It is located very well with lots to see and do nearby - the ground was very very wet following a lot of rain so we didn't walk as much as we often do, however there are so many towns and places of interest close by there was still more than enough to keep us occupied. One distinct highlight on this visit was our evening at the village pantomime - excellent indeed, Carol and Barry!!!
We definitely intend to be having some future holidays here, and can't recommend it enough.

"Thoroughly recommended, a really comfortable place to stay in beautiful countryside."
This holiday accommodation is ideal for a couple looking for somewhere comfortable that is set in beautiful countryside. The decor, fixtures and fittings are all to a very high standard and the bed is very comfortable. The shower is really good, plenty of hot water, as is the heating which appears to be unrestricted (I like it warm!). The couple who own this place, Carol and Barry, really look after you (without being intrusive) and will be able to give you any help you need. If we were to stay in this area again, I would have no hesitation staying here again, I thoroughly recommend it.

The owners couldn't have done more to make us welcome and help us. It was a rainy blustery weekend but this is a luxurious apartment - snug, warm, well equipped - in a great location. We got out for some good walking and good food, all local, and relaxed in pleasant seclusion when we couldn't.

"Everything we could have wanted for our holiday."
From the moment we arrived Carol & Barry were the warmest and most helpful of hosts, whilst also leaving us to get on with our own holiday. The cottage was immaculate, spacious, well equipped and extremely comfortable, set in a tranquil area of beautiful countryside. It was ideally situated for lovely walks and accessable for reaching many places of interest, including nearby towns and villages.
We definitely intend to return soon.

"A very special find."
What a perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy a few days away from the stresses of life. Carol and Barry are perfect hosts, and have made a very special apartment that has everything you could wish for and more. The apartment is warm, comfortable and beautifully presented, with lots of thought and detail given to making your stay perfect. The views are spectacular , especially from the bedroom and hard to tear yourself away from. If you want somewhere to recharge your batteries, then this is the perfect place. We will definatley be back.

"Cosy little apartment, clean and well equipped."
Myself and my partner travelled all the way down from Durham to stay in this apartment and we couldn't have been happier with our stay!
Firstly, Carol and Barry greeted us with the warmest of welcomes and showed us round the apartment. They left us to our privacy but were more than happy to answer any queries or questions we had. Perfect hosts!
The apartment is quite small but this makes it very cosy and warm. It is very clean, which is what we look for in an apartment, and is very well equipped. The sofa's are very comfy, as is the bed and the walk in wardrobe was a bit of a treat, especially for the other half!
We are already trying to find the time to come back to this little gem. Such a lovely part of the country and a super relaxing stay!
Thank you Carol & Barry.
