Romantic & tranquil getaway with stunning views overlooking the River Wye. Sip a glass of wine whilst watching the wildlife & listen to the river flowing by from the comfort of your lounge, dining area or south facing terrace. At night you can watch the stars, or see the moon dance on the water & hear the owls hoot.Surrounded by orchards ,you can follow the Wye Valley Walk or one of the bridleways from the village. Canoes can be launched from an lnlet next door to the grounds. Fishing from the garden & two other areas around Byford only by prior arrangement, please ask for details. Canoes can be hired from points upstream & finish at Byford as hire companies can collect the canoes from the Inlet .Set in a secluded yet easily accessible location, the property ( one of two lodges) is a short drive from Hay on Wye...

Very comfortable and well-thought out accommodation, ideal for a couple to spend a relaxing time. It has a glorious view of the River Wye from the south-facing picture-windows - one can just sit watching the river flowing down for a long time. Denise, the owner, was very helpful.

A well equipped apartment beautifully sited on the banks of the River Wye. Everything we could have wanted was provided (bar maybe a tea cosy), it was clean, well laid out and airy. The views were fantastic out over the river and according to our neighbours that week, the fishing was excellent. Denise the owner could not have been more...
