The Chase Hotel in Herefordshire has enjoyed a rich and vibrant history, and is still a celebrated focal point as one of the area’s most prestigious Country House Hotels.
The hotel is named after Chase Hill, which was part of the hunting grounds of the Bishop of Hereford in Medieval times.
Shaded pools are now all that remains of Chest or Chase Mill, dating from at least the 17th Century. This was one of three mill sites in Ross-on-Wye, the others being the Town Mill in Brookend and the One Mill at the end of the RopeWalk.
The Chase Hotel site has been occupied under various guises, developed from a farm and mill to a mansion house, before finally becoming the Ross-on-Wye Country House Hotel that it is today.
