Contemporary B&B comforts perfected over 450 years
Lower Wythall is a luxury bed and breakfast set in a beautiful, Grade II Elizabethan, timber-framed house in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside. It nestles in a quiet, rural setting with 1.3 acres of gardens, and views across the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Guests at Lower Wythall can look forward to a good night’s sleep on a luxury Hypnos bed with cool white cotton bed linen. Every room is ensuite with a luxury modern double-ended bath and/or a state-of-the-art mains pressure steam shower. Room trays include a selection of teas, freshly ground coffee and homemade goodies and there is superfast wifi throughout. There’s a large guest sitting room on the ground floor, and plenty of garden to explore.
The first meal of the day is an essential part of any Bed and Breakfast stay, and Lower Wythall doesn’t disappoint. Guests can enjoy a full English breakfast or seasonal special as well as a selection of cereals including homemade muesli or granola and fresh fruit. All ingredients are sourced from the local area wherever possible.
Tea and cake is always offered for guests arriving at tea-time, and is usually offered on other days of your stay. And although you could probably survive on the breakfasts and afternoon teas, there are plenty of excellent pubs and restaurants in the area. Though for those who wish to dine in it is easy enough to order meals to be delivered: your hosts here will happily provide cutlery and the dining room is lovely: cool and restful in summer, warmed by a wood-burning stove in cooler months.
Lower Wythall B&B suggests:
Lower Wythall has reduced the number of rooms they let out to adapt to the current situation, but can still accommodate ‘bubbling’ parties of eight. If the whole B&B is booked for 2 nights or more, by prior arrangement, we can provide one evening meal for your party at a reasonable cost.

Lower Wythall is just minutes from the M50 and only a five-minute drive into the market town of Ross-on-Wye. This means it is well located for the many activities the Wye Valley has to offer including canoeing, kayaking, cycling and walking. It is also within a five-minute drive of several local wedding venues: Bishopswood House, Flanesford Priory, Inn on the Wye and Parkfields. Goodrich Castle is six minutes drive away and it's ten minutes only to the Forest of Dean or Symonds Yat Rock. Twenty minutes will get you to Clearwell Caves, Hellens Manor, Puzzlewood and Raglan Castle.
"Having chosen Lower Wythall partly on the basis of the fantastic reviews, we can now echo those comments. Guy and Sheila were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The B&B is a beautiful large period property, and as the only guests we had sole use of the large sitting and dining rooms, warmed by log fires. We were offered tea and delicious homemade cake on arrival, and used a delivery service to order in an evening meal - Sheila providing plates and cutlery. Our bedroom was spacious and clean with wonderful views, a very comfortable super-king bed, and modern bathroom facilities. Breakfast in the morning was excellent, with many homemade foods complementing locally-sourced items. The hosts had done everything possible to accommodate covid restrictions; we felt very safe during our stay and in no way compromised. This is an excellent B&B, indeed probably the best we’ve stayed in. We were genuinely sorry to be leaving and hope we can return soon."
