Walking and Rambling in Wye Valley

Overview

YHA Wye Valley is perfect for walking holidays. The hostel is on the Wye Valley Walk, a very popular walking trail through the Welsh borders and the limestone valley. Symonds Yat, only four miles away from the hostel, is a magnificent destination with great views of the Black Mountains and Herefordshire. Offa's Dyke, a 177 mile long National Trail, passes right by the hostel.
