Ross-on-Wye: Beautiful and calming local way of life

Ross-on-Wye: Beautiful and calming local way of life

With the rise in popularity of market towns over the past few years, it can often be the case that these can start to shed some of the aspects of their character that made them what they were.

The influx of people can often bring in larger-chain companies which change the environment of the settlement.

However, if you are trying to find yourself somewhere to live where the nod towards the past and local customs has been retained, then you may discover your perfect new home when you look at property for sale in Ross-on-Wye.

The Herefordshire market town is home to just 10,000 people, making it an idyllic and quiet setting, where much of its character is still the same.

One of the main attractions of this town comes from the fact that it still retains its local market. Held in the picturesque red sandstone market house building, the event takes place twice per week on Thursdays and Saturdays. The setting itself is unique, with the 17th century construction being a great place to enjoy the local event.

The market also allows you to purchase locally-sourced and even handmade wares and goods, which allows people to put money back into the community. The idea of local camaraderie will also be enhanced with the knowledge that the market will allow you to meet and socialise with neighbours you may not yet have had the chance to talk to.

Aside from the market, the town is also known for its range of independent shops. Given that it has not been overrun by global and large-chain brands, it gives the town more of a rural and quaint feel, making it a perfect place for those who want something that feels completely separate from the big cities.

And when you want some time to enjoy the tranquillity that the area can offer, Ross-on-Wye's The Prospect is a public garden from where residents can enjoy some of the best views of the local area, including the famous horseshoe bend in the River Wye.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801494202-ADNFCR
