The Wye Valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty and one of my favourite locations for camping and relaxing in the UK. We were on a whistle-stop tour of England, Wales and Scotland and Wales and having just stopped at Tintern Abbey on our way back from the Eden Project before we move on to Wales.
Where did we stay in the Wye Valley?
We stayed at the River Wye Caravan and camping park which is on the west side of the River Wye. I love the Saracen’s Head on the other side of the river and would drive round there at a later stage, but I like the River Wye Caravan and camping park as it is clean and well priced.
Where did we eat?
I would normally eat at the Ye Olde Ferry Boat Inn, but no tables were available. It has amazing views over the river; the food is great, and the service is to match. However, just down from the River Wye Caravan and camping park is the Old Court Hotel. Their food is excellent and they have a massive garden at the rear of the property. It was also a simple walk from the campsite, which was also a pleasure after a long day in the saddle.
What else did we do?
The following day we travelled on to the other side of the river and walked along the river to watch the kayakers and a group of people that appeared to be on a rescue course negotiate the fast running waters that over here on the River Wye. It is always entertaining, and this was no exception. We then drove up to the top of Symonds Yat, to see the stunning views over the river.
It is true, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty and I love returning here time and time again.
