| Events in Rossett | 10 Places to Stay

Rossett lies just over the border into Wales. The A483 dual carriageway that links Chester (6 miles away) to Wrexham (5 miles) runs within half a mile of the village. The name Rossett is apparently made up of two words, hors or hros (horse) and set (settlement) but it has also been called Yr Orsedd "The High (or Judgement) Seat". Others say the name may be a corruption of "Y Rhosydd" - the marsh or bog. Rossett is located in good, gentle, walking country as the landscape is essentially flat though hills rise to the south and west. The River Alyn runs from the north-west before emptying into the River Dee some five miles away in the village of Holt. Anglers enjoy this stretch of water - there is a thriving fly-fishing club here. Rossett has many fine listed buildings including Rossett Mill - first constructed in 1544. Intended as a 'free' mill to rival the King's Mill at Marford it was rebuilt and extended in 1661 The mill was sketched by Turner in 1795. This area has many campsites and guesthouses but for rural luxury, visitors often choose Rossett Hall Hotel - fine food and comfort in lovely surroundings.
