    “The Olde House was a delight.”

    It is set up perfectly for both hot and cold weather - though we were lucky with the weather so were able to make the most of the glorious garden and complete peace. Lovely hosts who checked in on the first and last day to make sure we were okay.

About the location

UPTON BISHOP

Ross-on-Wye 3 miles.

The thriving village of Upton Bishop lies in beautiful Herefordshire countryside close to the border with Gloucestershire and has an excellent village pub, craft centre and is just 3 miles from the pretty riverside town of Ross-on-Wye. Upton Bishop offers many lovely walks and cycle routes with the Herefordshire Trail and Wye Valley Walk both close by. Nearby Gorsley offers a well-stocked village shop with Post Office and off licence, along with a popular free house pub with restaurant that's renowned for its Nepalese cuisine both in the county and beyond. Newent, one of the most attractive market towns in the Vale of Leadon and formerly a Roman settlement, has a wide range of attractions, including the half-timbered Old Market Hall dating back to 1668, traditional inns, restaurants, tea rooms and individual shops. Overlooking a large loop in the beautiful River Wye is the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, situated in the picturesque Wye Valley. This attractive town has timbered Tudor houses clustered around the striking 17th century Market Hall, and there are excellent shops, pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. Stroll along the lovely river bank, take a river cruise or view the surrounding countryside from a hot-air balloon. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean boasts many trails which can be enjoyed on foot, bicycle or horseback or why not try your hand at fishing, golf, kayaking or caving all of which can be enjoyed in the area. Try the local wine at the Three Choirs Vineyard or visit the waterfront city of Gloucester with its Roman foundations, Victorian docklands and Norman Cathedral. The stunning Brecon Beacon National Park, Cheltenham, Ledbury and the unspoilt Cotswold villages and towns and the beautiful Malvern Hills also make a great day out.
