Wye Valley Walk Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest displays details of the Wye Valley Walk accommodation, camping, guidebooks and maps, pubs, where to eat, and public transport
As well as actually walking the route, people need Wye Valley Walk accommodation, places at which to eat and drink, and public transport. That is mainly what these pages are about.
The Wye Valley Walk Long-Distance Footpath is “A perfect mix of hill and river walking” from Chepstow to just past the source of the River Wye. It is 136 miles in length, and passes through the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and through many lovely villages along the route, as well as the market towns of Chepstow, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye, Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Builth Wells and Rhayader, heading for the source of the River Wye high in the Hafren Forest. Just past the source of the Wye, the Wye Valley Walk connects to the Severn Way.
The Wye Valley Walk pages are intended for anyone who loves the countryside and wishes to find accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants, camping shops and public transport on or close to the long-distance footpath. To make use of these pages you do not have to walk the whole route, nor even part of it, but if you do, good luck to you.

Notes on Wye Valley Walk Accommodation
We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Wye Valley Walk Accommodation, Mileage and Services Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Wye Valley Walk accommodation recommendations.

Wye Valley Walk Restaurants and Pubs
Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Wye Valley Walk, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
