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)
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.
