The increasingly popular Ross Walking Festival explores  the beauty, peace and produce of South Herefordshire. Surprisingly accessible - just an hour from Bristol/Birmingham/Cardiff - and 2.5 hours from London; yet Ross remains a bit off the beaten track with a quirky range of independent shops, friendly atmosphere and often walking is just shared with wildlife!  We love it!
