Brooks Country House

Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire

This grand old house has recently morphed into a cool country bolthole – a relaxed feel, some tasty food and attractive prices now wait


27 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Led Zeppelin used to stay here when recording at studios on a nearby farm, and there’s still a bit of a rock-star feel to the place. A big house in the country, a swimming pool in the kitchen garden and its own vineyard that produces wine for the restaurant… There’s a rather good view, too, a clean sweep over ten miles of rolling country to rising mountains. The house once stood in 1,000 acres, it now has a mere 12, but the land beyond is owned by the National Trust and you can walk straight out, skirt a copse and find yourself at a 14th-century church. As for the hotel – smart, but relaxed, with down-to-earth Andrew and Carla at the helm. Expect an open fire in the sitting room, wood floors in the restaurant ans cowhide rugs in a bar that opens onto a sun-trapping garden. Nicely priced rooms are scattered about, some grander, others smaller, all with good beds, warm colours and lovely bathrooms; and there’s an apartment for four in the grounds if you want to look after yourselves. As for the food, it’s earthy stuff; homemade soups, a local rib-eye, a  sinful chocolate tart. Hard to beat.
