Ross on Wye
This afternoon a Otter was seen swimming in the River Wye out side Wilton Court , one of the guests staying here this weekend noted something swimming in the river, they thought it was a stick to begin with but then noticed it was moving against the current ,(they then took the below picture) it then pops out of the water onto the river bank then dived back in and disappeared, on speaking with the owners Helen and Roger Wynn it seems that they are not the only ones to comment on seeing the Otter, last year another resident mentioned that they had seen the Otter out and about, unfortunately we don’t know if its a pair but who knows. This shows that the river is getting a lot healthier and cleaner, which intern means fish stocks are on the increase. I doubt the fishermen are going to very pleased about this, but hey that’s wildlife for you.

Yesterday our very own head chef Rachael Williams and Manager Stef Marshall received the “finalist” award on behalf of Roger and Helen and The Wilton Court. Roger and Helen transformed the beautiful Elizabethan building on the banks of the Wye with a complete refurbishment, including an intriguing collection of decorative curious and objects d’art collected by Helen and Roger from their time living and working in the far east. The result is an enchanting 11 bedroom riverside restaurant with rooms.
We are all very proud to of won another award from the Forester.
