Cycling and Canoeing Safaris in the Guardian

Look out for The Guardian Travel section tomorrow (Saturday 28 May) to see what journalist Dixe Wills thought of his Wheely Wonderful Cycling and Canoeing Safari.  He cycled around the Black & White Villages of North Herefordshire,  crossed the River Lugg into Wales, spent his evening watching badgers & bats & finally paddled gently down the River Wye.   Since Dixe did his Safari, we’ve added a couple of new options for overnight stops ( see below)

Paddling gently down the River Wye in search of kingfishers, herons & sandmartins

Cycling and Canoeing Holidays
Short Breaks (3 days – 2 nights) from Adult £205 Child £145
This is an action packed holiday, combining a two day cycle tour with a wonderful canoe trip down the River Wye. You can stay in an Elizabethan half-timbered hotel, a farmhouse on a working farm, or on an organic smallholdingwith nature trail. Your two day cycle tour takes you through the welsh borderlands & the Black & White villages of Herefordshire. On your third day pick up your Canadian canoes and paddle downstream to Hay on Wye for lunch, then float down the Wye to the famous toll bridge an The Boat Inn at Whitney on Wye, where you’ll be collected and returned to base.


About Wheely Wonderful Cycling

I organise cycling and walking holidays from our farm on the Shropshire/ Herefordshire borders. I love anything to do with cycling - and this area is the perfect place to cycle - quiet lanes, fantastic scenery, lots of history and great food. My blog aims to keep you up to date with the best places to cycle and walk in the area, and all the wonderful things to see and do whilst you are exploring by bike or foot.
