Ross on Wye’s 11th Walking Festival 27 – 29 Sept 2019

Ross on Wye Walking Festival near Ye Old Ferrie Inn

3 days of guided walks along trails and footpaths in or near the glorious setting of the Wye Valley, one of the best kept secrets in the walking world

There will be something for walkers of all abilities and interests, with walks ranging from just under 3 miles to around 8 miles. Many of the walks involve things other than just walking.

For instance there’s a Cream Tea walk, a walk and steam train ride, a lunch cruise on the river Wye and several pub lunch walks. There’s  also a bird watching walk, a geology walk and a walk looking back to the creation of the first long-lasting railway lines made from special steel developed in the nearby Forest of Dean.

Several walks offer a long or short option and all of this in or near the beautiful Wye Valley. For more information go to the Walking Festival’s own website.

For accommodation nearby look no further than Ye Old Ferrie Inn Bunkhouse.  Standing on the banks of the River Wye this 15th century pub,  with its charming traditional features, offers warming open fires, stunning views across the valley and B&B accommodation.  Adjoining the Inn, the bunkhouse offers  practical and affordable accommodation in two cosy bunkrooms sleeping 6 and 12.
