BASINGSTOKE, U.K. - March 20, 2019 - PRLog -- The Pilgrim Country House Hotel in the Wye Valley has undergone a major refurbishment. with the creation of six 'Country Collection' rooms, a new look to the reception area and conference room, with and other public areas also spruced up.

Hands-on owner Steve Boyle brought in renowned interiors expert Anne-Marie Gow from Bath to oversee the refurbishment – her previous work includes the famous Crescent Hotel in her home city – with Steve doing much of the work himself.

Comments Steve: "Owning a hotel is a bit like painting the Forth Bridge; you are constantly looking to improve things, but this is the most ambitious makeover that the hotel has undergone in the 16 years that I have owned it.

"Anne-Marie has done a fantastic job with the new Country Collection bedrooms, which means we can now offer a genuine slice of luxury to our loyal customers who come back to stay with us time and again."

The hotel is located in the village of Much Birch, mid-way between Hereford and Ross-on-Wye, and the Herefordshire trail literally passes the front door – making it ideal for a walking break.

The bar area retains a country pub feel, selling local ales and ciders, and there is also a large wood-burning stove to warm winter evenings.

The hotel's Valley Restaurant has uninterrupted views across the Wales restaurant towards the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons beyond, and there is a wooden terrace to make the most of the view with a G&T on warm afternoons.

There is much to do in the area; Hereford with its famous cathedral which is home to the Mappa Mundi – which scholars believe was made around the year 1300 – and the cider museum is also well worth a visit.

The pretty market town of Ross-on-Wye is a short drive away, as is the Labels Shopping Outlet, and there are plenty of golf courses and an abundance of fishing in the region.

There is currently a special three-night Easter package available, with stays any time between Thursday 18 and Monday 22 April.  They cost from £99 pp, B&B, or from £159 pp half-board.  A three-night stay in one of the new Country Collection rooms costs from £119 pp, B&B, or £179 half board (prices based on two sharing a room).
