You don’t need a bicycle or a canoe to enjoy the Wye Valley. There are some of the loveliest walks in Britain to be found in the hillsides and meadows surrounding Ross on Wye. We have great experience of walking from the hotel or from villages and lanes just a short drive from here.
We will happily supply maps and walking routes for you, or you can simply follow some of the exceptionally well marked trails. There are short walks such as the John Kyrle walk around Ross on Wye which is a circular walk or long distance routes such as the Wye Valley Walk.
The Wye Valley Walk runs for 136 miles from the slopes of Plynlimon in mid Wales, near the source of the River Wye, to Chepstow in Monmouthshire, where the Wye joins the Severn Estuary. The walk enters Herefordshire at Hay on Wye and leaves the county, after 57 miles, just north of Monmouth. The walk is clearly waymarked as it follows the route of the river, either along riverside paths or in sections giving excellent views of the Wye valley from the surrounding hills.
