The little village of Goodrich is located close to a bend in the River Wye on the English - Welsh border between the towns of Ross-on-Wye and Symonds Yat. As with many Welsh and English border towns, it was its strategic position, in this case at a crossing point of the River Wye that initiated both the building of its castle and later the village.
The village offers easy access to the Brecon Beacons National Park, the beautiful Forest of Dean, and the Welsh capital of Cardiff, which is just under an hour away. Shops in Goodrich include an antique shop, gift shops, cafes and small restaurants can be found in the village. However, the main attraction for visitors to Goodrich must be its location on the River Wye.
