Manager recommends

  • Top of the list for your activity break is to paddle a canoe down the river. For something less energetic, admire the spectacular views of the forest on Coppit Hill and Symonds Yat. The hostel is a great location for walking holidays as the Wye Valley Walk runs right past the door.
