Bromsberrow (or Bromesberrow) is part of the Forest of Dean district. The village is close to the meeting point between Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire. The nearest town is Ledbury, about four miles north in Herefordshire.

The village was briefly home to Richard Hammond, the former Top Gear presenter, who resided on a farm next to St. Mary's Church.[2]
