Winter Wye accommodation/ camping

Post by Mark R » Tue Jan 14, 2014 10:49 pm

Planning on a dash down the Wye, next month.

Any ideas on possibilities for somewhere to stay by the river, in Feb?

Cheers,

Trericket Mill. If you object to vege food it's not far to a pub catering for carnivores.

The Old Workhouse at Rhayader used to be very good, and convenient. On the A44, RHS as you approach the town.

Food was good but pricey. Bunkhuse and rooms accomodation. Al a Carte if you want it. I haven't stayed there for 15 years so it may all have changed.

There is Red kite feeding station next door.

Hope you have a good trip, wherever you stay.

Not clear which sections you are planning Mark but, whilst I've not stayed there, this place in Llyswen looked good and convenient.

Depending how far down you are going:
Lucksall Camp Site near Mordiford (downstream from Hereford)
Welsh Bicknor Youth Hostel is riverside choice. Nice location in summer , not been in winter, very helpful warden who is/was a boater.
There are several choices around Symmonds Yat, mainly pubs, but could be pricey.
At Monmouth there is the rowing club, they were great at the end of a DoE expedition I was running, although no accommodation as such they may be able to find you something nearby.

Glasbury to the sea, possibly.

Thanks for the helpful suggestions so far.

Lots of suggestions http://www.backwatershire.co.uk/wyerout ... 20on%20Wye

Bycross Farm will I'm sure have a fire pit!

At Ross you may be able to camp at the Ross Rowing Club or The White Lion Inn (also B&B)
Canoeing - bigger boat, broken paddle, more skill!

Farmer Bowen's field river left just up from Yat Rock. Used to charge £1 pppnt. There is a Whetherspoons in Monmouth - cheap and fairly cheerful. Forget what its called.
