Newly refurbished from top-to-toe, Brooks Country House Hotel combines the best of local British food, fine wines and cool, classic design with warm, genuine hospitality. This spectacular 22 bedroom Georgian Manor House is set in 13 acres of magnificent Herefordshire countryside, with the picturesque market towns of Hereford and Ross on Wye a mere stone’s throw away.
Wye Life chats with General Manager Ben Hudson
What’s new since we last saw you?
We now have 21 bedrooms refurbished and we’re thrilled to report that our conference room, swimming pool, and our games room are all up and running for our residents’ exclusive use.
Are you running any special offers that may interest our readers?
Yes, throughout September & October we have a special offer on our traditional Sunday Lunch of two courses for £16.00. This offer is available from 12 – 3pm, and your readers can call us on 01989 -730211 to book.
What are you planning for the festive season?
On Mondays to Saturdays throughout December we’re offering fabulous Christmas parties which include a
cocktail on arrival to get the party started, followed by a delicious 3 course meal comprising a first course, Christmas dinner and dessert in our beautiful restaurant for £28.00 per person. To book call 01989 730211 and quote Christmas party or e mail us at email@example.com
Also, we’ll be open for residents over the Christmas break – we have a three day Christmas Feast package for those looking to celebrate the festive season in style. The cost of £499 per person (sharing a double/twin room) includes dinner, bed and breakfast for the three nights plus mulled wine. We will open again for non-residents on the 27th – 30th December.
That sounds perfect. And we understand you have your own vineyard too?
The soil here is perfect for growing grapes, especially the Richensteiner grapes which make a dry white wine – the perfect match for seafood, white meat or just nibbles at the bar. We produce 300 – 500 bottles of wine made with love by Three Choirs vineyard in Gloucestershire, and we sell our 2011 Pengethley Estate wine for £17 a bottle in our bar & restaurant.
Do you have any plans for the future?
Yes, we will be opening three glamping units in our stunning grounds. They’re vintage style, perfect for snuggling up in, with wood fires and amazing views. They will be styled like a gorgeous hotel bedroom with beautiful vintage interiors and we’re very excited about them. Also, from November 2016 we will be offering beauty treatments and massage – keep an eye on out!
