WALKING THE WYE VALLEY

Secluded charm, ancient woodland and the majestic river Wye.

Rambling through the Wye Valley, the ruins of Tintern Abbey come into view – beauty in stone in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The chants of long-ago monks seems to echo round these stones. 

Perhaps the most unspoilt river valley in Britain, the Wye flows though breathtaking scenery rich in both Welsh and English history. From the source of northern Wales down to the Bristol Channel, the river passes many evocative and famous sites – Symonds Yat, Kilvert country, Tintern Abbey – and conjures up vivid memories of the 19th century Wye-tourers in search of the ‘picturesque’.

The area enjoys a relatively mild climate and its vineyards continue the tradition of producing wines probably started by the Romans. Over 800 years ago an abbey was built at Tintern and its ruins still stand tall. Further downstream lies the historic border town of Chepstow with its early Norman, stone built castle.

We’ll follow sections of the Wye Valley Walk, the Offa’s Dyke Path and surrounding trails meandering along the hillsides high above the majestic River Wye often emerging at superb viewing points such as Symonds Yat Rock and the Eagle’s Nest. We can take in the area’s rich history and discover the myths and legends of these borderlands.



WALKING GRADES


Full day walks with moderate amounts of ascent and descent. The paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Walks will last up to 6 hours and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent. Some walks will be less demanding but equally rewarding.

    NO Single Room Supplement for Solo & Single Travellers

    The availability of single rooms is limited, as is the number if single rooms available without supplement.

    If booking online, for holidays advertised with no single room supplement, if you book a place in a twin room you should not assume that this room will be allocated for your sole use.

    We may be able to obtain additional single rooms or allocate a twin room or double room for sole use, however an additional cost may be levied.

    Share a twin room with another solo traveller
    You can often avoid a single supplement if you are willing to share a twin room with another group member of the same sex, as we can accommodate this on most holidays. Sharers are required to adhere to a no-smoking policy and to reasonable norms of behaviour. If we are unable to find you a suitable sharer, we may allocate you a single room at no additional cost.
