Happy walk through the ruins of the priory, glorious spot too, surrounded by hills and meadows. Easy to find, decent car park, toilets there or attached to hotel , toilets not posh but clean and well equipped.

I'd often heard the place mentioned but never quite got round to visiting. After a good Sunday lunch in the nearby Skirrid Inn we fancied some fresh air. The drive through the valley is in itself stunning ( though some sections a bit tight in...More

Two years ago there was a summer-only service from Hay-on-Wye, called the Offa's Dyke Flier. I found this in the online Herefordshire bus timetable. The outward and return route are both scenic. I don't know if the service... More
