Hoarwithy to Ross-on-Wye

If you prefer a longer half day or a less taxing full day paddle, or just want more time to chill out on the bank to skim stones or picnic, this is the trip for you.

Launching at our base at Tresseck Campsite in the beautiful village of Hoarwithy, head downstream skirting past the village of Sellack, under its Victorian suspension bridge and on towards the pillars of the old railway bridge at Strangford. Before long How Caple, well known for its Court Gardens, will pass by as you head through the Inglestone Estate, respecting the fabled salmon pools and the fisherman who travel from far and wide in search of an elusive catch.

Continue through the fast water past the tranquil hamlet of Hole-in-the-Wall and pass underneath another elegant pedestrian suspension bridge at Foy. After a sweeping bend the sandstone pillars from the remnants of Backney Bridge mark the last stretch of the journey before your final destination, the picturesque market town of Ross-on-Wye, appears perched above the Wye.
