Peterstow village and parish in South Herefordshire, England, is situated about 2 miles (3 km) west of Ross-on-Wye on the A49.


The village is centred around The Common and the stone cross war memorial. Among the general features of the village are the Parish Church, a village store & Post Office and two pubs, the Yew Tree and the Red Lion.


The Parish Church, St. Peter's, begun in the Norman period and contains windows from the 13th and 14th centuries.

The tower and spire are c. 15th century and the pulpit is, typically for Herefordshire, a Jacobean example. 2009 saw the creation of a community space within the nave of the Church. This is now called St Peter’s Hall. Generous donations from the Big Lottery Community Building Fund and Herefordshire Council together with local fundraising financed the alterations.


The Hall is used by the many community groups as well as the Parish Council.
