WYE VALLEY, BRECON BEACONS and BLACK and WHITE VILLAGES
A truly spectacular tour combining three pieces of individual beauty. Based in Hereford we are able to combine visits to all three areas in this fascinating tour. We also include a Castle. We visit The Wye Valley with its tranquil waters, the Brecon Beacons with its spectacular landscapes and tour the famous Black and White Villages.
We have a morning departure with a coffee stop en route to Shrewsbury where we have lunch with time to explore. Our journey then takes us through the Shropshire valleys with a further comfort stop before reaching
our hotel in Hereford where Dinner is served.
This morning we head to Symond's Yat where we have an included boat trip on the River Wye. We have a short break at the Old Court Hotel for tea/coffee and biscuits before we take a leisurely drive to see the ruins of Tintern Abbey. The afternoon there is time at leisure in the pretty town of Monmouth before a scenic drive back to the hotel for Dinner.
A journey South to the Brecon Beacons where we have an included ride on what is described as one of the best little train journeys aboard The Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. This Heritage railway runs through the
beautiful National Park and alongside the fill length of The Taf Fechan Reservoir. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Hay on Wye a pretty town renowned for its book stores and traditional shops. We return to the hotel for Dinner.
Today we start with a short journey to Leominster where we have an included visit to Hampton Court Castle and Gardens where we have included admission to the award winning Gardens with its vast lawns, floral displays and woodland. In the afternoon we have a lovely drive through the Black and White Villages associated with the area. We then return to our hotel for Dinner.
We begin our journey homewards with a visit to Bridgnorth where we have time for coffee before continuing onto Chester for lunch with time to explore. We make a further comfort stop on the way home arriving back late afternoon.
