Overview

Historic Whitney-on-Wye single track Toll Bridge dates back to 1779. One of just a few remaining in the UK. Two earlier bridges were washed away by the strong river currents and a stone and timber construction was built in 1797.Open 365 days a year with parking and riverside picnic area. Come and fish, canoe, picnic or camp with us. Perfect setting for camping part way through your canoe trip - on the banks of the River Wye at Whitney Toll Bridge HR3 6EW. Very quiet and private small campsite with fire pit, direct canoe launch/land and parking. Two toilets and two hot showers available (clean and fully stocked with soap and loo rolls etc) plus clean drinking water shower tap. Breakfast and BBQs can be arranged - fully licensed so you can enjoy a chilled beer too.

Hi Fiona - next time you visiting please come in for coffee or an ice cold drink too. The River Wye certainly is magical both in the glorious sunshine but also when it is fast and furious - but then only to view! Maggie
