Get away this Spring to the Wye Valley, staying in Symonds Yat, with superb days out to Hereford, touring the Wye Valley and a full guided Tour of the Forest of Dean.

The Paddocks Hotel in Symonds Yat is located just a short stroll from the banks of the River Wye in the picturesque Wye Valley and not far from the historic border towns of Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye. The en-suite bedrooms are well appointed and tastefully furnished. The  gardens are beautifully landscaped with views of the Wye Valley as a stunning backdrop.

Included in your GoWightAway Holiday is three great days exploring the Wye Valley, Herefordshire & the Forest of Dean. There is  a scenic tour of the Wye Valley, stopping in Ross-on-Wye, followed by a tour and tasting at Westons Cider Mill and an afternoon free to explore Ledbury, one of the finest black and white towns in the country, with cobbled streets & picturesque half-timbered houses, set at the foot of the Malvern Hills,

We spend an afternoon in the historic walled city of Hereford, stroll the quaint medieval streets before an included guided tour of the Cathedral – home of famous the Mappi Mundi & the world’s largest chained library.

There is an Optional 45-minute River Cruise on the Wye from Symonds Yat for £10pp with Coffee & Biscuits or enjoy a free morning Wednesday, stroll along the graceful river from the hotel’s gardens to the pretty little town.

Visit the Forest of Dean with a local guide, enjoying stunning vistas and discovering the forest’s History, visiting Clearwell Caves, Tintern Abbey and Monmouth. We stop at the Speech House in the heart of the Forest – the Court House of the Forest Verderers – Justices of the Forest – with a delightful & interesting after-lunch talk from one of the Verderers – a light lunch is included.

We make a day of the journey to the hotel, stopping at Caerleon Roman Fort with entrance included so you can stretch your legs, and plenty of time to use the cafe to grab a bite to eat before continuing to the hotel.
