The Cathedral city and capital of the Marches. Also home to the world famous “mappa-mundi”. Enjoy a wonderful aspect of the cathedral as you meander past. Pass through the city and enjoy wonderful views...
Just a few miles out of the city the village of Hampton Bishop is on the left bank – why not stop at the Bunch of Carrots at a spot of lunch or a drink? Once back on the water, the site of the Woolhope Dome, a famous Limestone outcrop, with its wooded slopes comes into view.
Just a mile or so further on and you will notice the mouth of the River Lugg joining from your left. It’s here that the Mordiford Dragon once came to water and feed (see PDF). Although not on the Wye, the village of Mordiford is just a 10minute stroll from Lucksall Park. It’s a small village with a historic bridge and the Moon Inn public house.
We are fortunate to be based on the award winning Lucksall Park. The site has unrivalled facilities including a well stocked shop and three shower facilities. Parking is limited on site so please try and car share when possible. The site is the starting point for our most popular trips the half day trip to Hoarwithy, and the full day trip to Ross-on-Wye.
The village of Hoarwithy is indicated by the single carriage road bridge with a toll house on its right. Hoarwithy has a great pub – the New Harp Inn, several great B&B’s as well as a Tresseck camp site. The village is also famed for its “Itallianate” style church – well worth a look around.
We are delighted to be opening up a second operating base at the friendly, family run Tresseck camp site on the river meadows in Hoarwithy. A firm favourite with canoeists and campers alike, the site has basic amenities (running water & porterloos), a pebble beach (river conditions permitting) and a canoe launch. Enjoy a simple meal around the campfire or treat yourself at the pub 200 metres away.
The end point of our most popular day trip. The pictureseque and historic market town sits high above the river. Dating back to the 11th century, the town boasts a fantastic 17th century market house. The town was at the forefront of tourism as part of the “Wye Tour”.
