We could recommend some places in or around Ross on Wye alternatively, here is a start:
http://www.visitforestofdean.co.uk and click on "Places to stay"
Our preferred "local" - the Mill Race, Walford - Food pub of the year 2009 - a great relaxing venue, reasonably priced, with a really good menu created mainly from local produce and with friendly staff too!
For watersports on our doorstep - canoeing along the River Wye. www.thecanoehire.co.uk
and for less aquatic exercise - walking the River Wye - Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Cycling and dog-walking are particularly popular in the nearby Royal Forest of Dean where cars are banned from the forest trails. http://www.visitforestofdean.co.uk
Pampering and fitness from the Wye Valley Spa just half a mile (perhaps a short jog?) away is the Wye Valley Spa and CATS crèche: http://www.wyevalleyspa.co.uk
For fun in the forest - especially for kids: http://www.visitforestofdean.co.uk and click on Forest Fun!
For a dose of culture - less than 15 minutes away is the Wyastone Concert Hall which offers one-off concerts ranging from brass bands to Red Priest - some years they run a full season of music and entertainment with meals in their marquee. www.wyastone.co.uk
Goodrich Castle - one of the Marcher castles built for suppressing the Welsh (we make no comment!)
