Situated in the centre of Chepstow, Greenman Backpackers is perfect for the start/finish of Offa’s Dyke. For cyclists it is just 1/2 mile from A466 after the old Severn Bridge crossing on the LEJOG cycle route.
The wonderful 13 century grade 2 listed building was beautifully restored in 2016. Mick and Ness have incorporated all the modern-day technology needed to run a modern accommodation business while retaining the original beauty of the building. You’re assured of a friendly welcome and a truly comfortable stay. The only problem is you may not want to leave the next morning!

Ross-on-Wye Walking Festival offers a wonderful opportunity to explore some of the incredible countryside of South Herefordshire, offering dramatic gorges, rolling hillsides, spectactular views, meandering rivers, ancient forests and parkland. Add to this experienced leaders and specialists who will explain a range of really interesting features on these walks from local history, bird-spotting, lost castles, unusual churches, local conservation, steam trains, pre-Roman mining and industrial heritage, ancient caves and local geology formations; and you have a recipe for a great weekend, in a great place, with great people. Top this off with a couple of nights at Ye Old Ferrie Inn Bunkhouse, a beautiful riverside pub that has been standing on the banks of the River Wye since the 15th century.
