Laze away a sunny day on the River Wye, paddle along one of Britain's most beautiful rivers. Tremendous views of the Black Mountains and Hay Bluff can be seen to the south with 'Kilvert' country and Clyro to the north.

Stayed here with a group from work, great canoeing, the accommodation is first rate and the food is outstanding, braised squid is the best. All the staff here are brilliant.
