Once more a very enjoyable weekend is expected, this time in the lovely Herefordshire countryside, staying in the historic market town of Ross-on-Wye, situated on a hill above the majestic River Wye. Already over 50 people have indicated they will be coming.

 

Our choice of venue is The Chase Country House Hotel in Gloucester Road which boasts stunning Georgian architecture and is beautifully located in eleven acres of parkland and with excellent services and facilities.

 

The hotel is situated just two minutes walk from the centre of town, so we can quickly access the shops, bars and restaurants.

 

We have secured a deal with the hotel offering us:

Dinner, Bed and Breakfast at a cost per person, per night of -

 

Twin/Double: 」72.50

Single 」95.00

 

The weekend still has places available (at time of printing). If you are interested, please book with Myra ASAP. Do not send payment until advised by Myra.

 

There will as usual be two walks on Saturday and Sunday, one long and one short so most of our members can experience the Hereford countryside on a walk that matches their preferred grading.

 

N.B. This trip is an 双fficial Ramblers outing so Ramblers third party liability insurance will apply to those who have booked through the social secretary.

Cancellations may occur so if you have not been able to book a place please let the social secretary know you are interested so you can be placed on the reserve list.
