Penyard House Hotel

Highlights: Ludlow, Hay-on-Wye, Scenic Wye Valley, Forest of Dean, Symonds Yat, Tintern, Worcester, Welsh Borderlands

The small market town of Ross-on-Wye has an enviable position, by the banks of the River Wye and on the edge of the picturesque Forest of Dean. Close to the border of Wales and with a Tudor history, still evident in many of the ancient buildings, it makes a peaceful and ideal area for touring the delightful surrounding countryside and deep into the stunning Wye Valley.

Included Sightseeing Excursions

Books & Borders

A full day tour starting with a visit to the beautiful old town of Ludlow with its riot of black and white half-timbered buildings - nearly 500 are listed - and a huge 11th century castle, much of which still stands. Then it’s across the line of Offa’s Dyke, constructed in the 8th century to mark the border with Wales, for a stop in the eccentric little town of Hay-on-Wye, which is the ‘second-hand book capital’ of Britain, and even has its own ‘King’!

Valleys & Views

On our second full day tour we follow the River Wye into the Forest of Dean, to admire the view at Symonds Yat with a great loop of the river far below. After some time in the handsome border town of Monmouth we reach the most scenic stretch of the Wye Valley, halting at Tintern, where the 14th century ruined Abbey has a beautiful setting.

Cathedral City

A morning visit to the cathedral city of Worcester, sitting pretty on the banks of the River Severn. Here there is time to explore the medieval streets, magnificent cathedral, or perhaps visit the fascinating Royal Worcester Porcelain Museum. This afternoon you can relax in the hotel or enjoy free time in Ross-on-Wye
