If you love Tintern Abbey then you are going to love these too. The freshly mown grass against the columns; the peacefulness; surrounded by the wilds of Wales. Additionally this is free, just no dogs.

Happy walk through the ruins of the priory, glorious spot too, surrounded by hills and meadows. Easy to find, decent car park, toilets there or attached to hotel , toilets not posh but clean and well equipped.

I'd often heard the place mentioned but never quite got round to visiting. After a good Sunday lunch in the nearby Skirrid Inn we fancied some fresh air. The drive through the valley is in itself stunning ( though some sections a bit tight in...More

I started out reasonably early from Hay and it was very foggy. I was off to the Llanthony Priory to the south. I was soon on a very thin rural road crossing the moors and as the fog lifted I got some terrific views before...More

Two years ago there was a summer-only service from Hay-on-Wye, called the Offa's Dyke Flier. I found this in the online Herefordshire bus timetable. The outward and return route are both scenic. I don't know if the service... More
