Stay at a Hotel Where 25 People Have Been Murdered!

No fewer than 25 people have been murdered at The Pilgrim Country House Hotel which is located in the village of Much Birch in the Wye Valley, between Ross-on-Wye and Hereford; but every single murder has been solved by other guests staying at the hotel.

The Pilgrim, which is owned by ex-England and Gloucester rugby legend Steve Boyle,   has been staging regular Murder Mystery evenings since 2009.

Comments Steve: “Interest in our murder mystery evenings just keeps on growing. It started off as a bit of fun but some of our amateur sleuths return time after time and can’t get enough – they have clearly missed their vocation in life!”

The next event is on Saturday 14 November when a group of ‘00’ agents gets infiltrated by a spy, resulting in the death of at least one of their colleagues and special agent 007, James Bland, is determined to find out who it is.

A team of professional actors will lead dinner guests through the background to the murder and will then circulate to provide clues and answer questions.

The evening costs £38 per person which includes a three-course dinner, a murder to solve, actors and prizes for the winning detectives.

Those wishing to enjoy a glass of wine or two to help to get the crime-solving juices flowing and not have to worry about driving home, can stay overnight at the special discounted rate of £33 per person* (two sharing, B&B – total of £71per person for the Murder Mystery and overnight stay).

The morning after the Murder Mystery, why not clear the head with a brisk walk in the surrounding countryside?

The hotel is in the middle of rich walking country and there are several routes direct from the hotel (free guides available from reception), and the renowned Herefordshire Trail literally passes the front door.

Extra nights and room upgrades available on request.
