St Mary’s Garden Village – local area

Ross-On-Wye, everything you need

Overlooking the River Wye and the picturesque Herefordshire countryside, Ross has long been a magnet for visitors. Renowned for its rich history and stunning scenery, today it is a thriving, yet traditional town with good schools and amenities, shopping facilities and road links.

With a mix of high street and independent shops and a host of eateries, cafes and restaurants, Ross-on-Wye makes a great area for spending quality leisure time and is fast building a reputation as a ‘gastro town’. The town’s iconic 17th century Market House still hosts twice weekly markets and ‘Made in Ross’ a collective of local artists, artisans and craft workers who regularly display a range of individual works.

There’s a wealth of events and festivals to explore all year round, many centred on the riverside, alongside the town’s rowing club. From regattas to Dragon Boat racing, to the River Festival and the annual Hedgehog Festival – the symbol of the town – to national dog events and fire-walking spectaculars, Ross has something for everyone.

Spoilt for choice…

Rich in culture, Ross is also home to the Phoenix Theatre, which dates from 1923, with its 64 tiered seating area and busy programme of films and amateur theatre group productions.

Alternatively, get on your bike and join the brand new cycle link from St Mary’s through to the Ross Town Trail, or even take a stroll along the meandering River Wye right through to Goodrich Castle or along the Wye Valley Walk – you won’t be disappointed.

Ross-on-Wye borders the counties of Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, with views in every direction – from St Mary’s Church’s own Prospect Viewpoint, to the Malvern Hills in the east and the Black Mountains in the west.

Within easy reach of the A40/M50 and M5 motorway network and close  to the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, St Mary’s Garden Village  offers modern living, spectacular scenery and a sense of community.
