Guided Walking Holidays Wye Valley Rambling through the Wye Valley, the ruins of Tintern Abbey come into view beauty in stone in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The chants of long-ago monks seems to echo round these stones. Perhaps the most unspoilt river valley in Britain, the Wye flows though breathtaking scenery rich in both Welsh and English history. From the source of northern Wales down to the Bristol Channel, the river passes many evocative and famous sites Symonds Yat, Kilvert country, Tintern Abbey and conjures up vivid memories of the 19th century Wye-tourers in search of the picturesque. The area enjoys a relatively mild climate and its vineyards continue the tradition of producing wines probably started by the Romans. Over 800 years ago an abbey was built at Tintern and its ruins still stand tall. Further downstream lies the historic border town of Chepstow with its early Norman, stone built castle. Well follow sections of the Wye Valley Walk, the Offas Dyke Path and surrounding trails meandering along the hillsides high above the majestic River Wye often emerging at superb viewing points such as Symonds Yat Rock and the Eagles Nest. We can take in the areas rich history and discover the myths and legends of these borderlands.
