The Golden Valley is said to have been the inspiration behind CS Lewis’s Narnia and it is a magical landscape. Here there is the space to breathe, relax and enjoy a different pace of life but also plenty to do nearby:
The Wye is one of Britain’s most renowned canoeing and angling rivers, with conditions to suit people of all ages and abilities. A variety of shops in and around the area sell and hire specialist equipment.
An idyllic river beach and wild swimming spot is less than ten minutes drive away in Bredwardine. Within twenty minutes you can be at two other fantastic river beaches – the Warren in Hay and Glasbury. All are accessible (although if you are going beyond a paddle the are not recommended for beginners). Swimming in fresh water feels lovely and is highly recommended.
The Pandy, Herefordshire’s oldest pub, is a five minute walk from Perrydore and serves good pub food. Within a short drive there is fantastic modern British, traditional French, amazingly good pub food by a river and outstanding Thai and Nepalese food to be enjoyed.
