Cool off in the River Wye

Wild Swimming Wye Valley

This weather has us dreaming of lazy picnics by the riverside and splashing around in the water. We are so lucky to have lots of gorgeous wild swimming spots nearby in the Wye Valley  – whether you’re looking to simply paddle on a riverside beach in Hay-on-Wye or challenge yourself with a 2km swim (from the A4103 to the A438!) through a cluster of pretty Lugg Meadow fields in Hereford. We have done all the research for our guests working with the expert, Daniel Start at Wild Swimming to put together a special map sharing details of the best access points, parking and what to expect at each location.  All you need to do is order one of our delicious picnic hampers, pack your swimmers and a towel and you are set. Don’t forget the sun cream and river shoes are really useful at many of the locations.
