One reason why our guests choose us and certainly one of the best factors of staying in the Ross- on Wye area is our location. 

Orhcard Cottage is situated in the stunning Wye Valley, surrounded by beautiful countryside and with easy access to other diverse landscapes.  In each direction is a completely different day trip, never duplicating your route.

We are two miles from Ross-on-Wye which is in south Herefordshire and the gateway to the array of experiences of Herefordshire.  It is a county famous for its apple trees, oak trees and hop vines; good mixed agricultural land, arable, horticultural and livestock producing some of the finest British food.

 

 

Herefordshire has a broad range of topography and each area has its own style of architecture.  From the use of warm sandstone in the south, granite on the Welsh borders, black and white-timber frame in the north, and red brick in the east.

The River Wye stretches the full length of the county and down stream to the border between Wales and the Forest of Dean.  The Wye Valley has been voted Britain’s favourite river. Wye Valley walks, cycle routes and car drives make it accessible to all.

The term picturesque was coined as a description and architectural movement as a result of Regency visits up the river.  Hence the Wye valley has been described as the birthplace of tourism. 

Our cottage is only a couple of fields from the river; the nearest access point is Backney picnic site. Without getting into the car there are great walks and cycle rides connecting pretty villages by crisscrossing 19th century footbridges.
