The Heart of England/Peak District
The River Wye winds down through the valley through spectacular limestone gorge scenery and dense ravine woodlands. Superb wildlife, intriguing archaeological and industrial remains and impressive geological features all make it into one of the most fascinating Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Designated in 1971, this unique landscape straddles the border between England and Wales.
Historic legacies - Silure (Iron Age) hillforts; Norman castles; the first Cistercian Abbey in Wales and a pioneering industrial heritage in iron; brass; wire; tinplate and copper works.A quarter of Britain's population of lesser horseshoe bats, a growing population of peregrine falcons, goshawks, ravens, rare whitebeam, nightjar and lesser known fish like the shad and twaite..
The life of Whitney, both past and present, has been dominated by the river Wye. The remains of Whitney Castle, which was built to guard the Welsh border, were washed away by floods. So too, were three stone toll bridges crossing the river to Clifford. The present bridge, part stone and part timber, dates from 1802. Traffic crossing it still has to pay the toll in the old tradition. During the holiday season, groups of canoeists can be seen at the bridge ‘putting-in’ their canoes for a trip up or down the river. Angling is also an attraction on this stretch of water and from the bridge itself.
The Church of St Peter and St Paul was built in the nineteenth century from the stones of an earlier church that was washed away together with the rectory by floodwaters. ‘Wardour House’ at the end of the church drive and ‘West Hills’ to the east of the church are both former rectories.
Today, farming is the major local occupation, the farmers mainly being tenants of the Whitney Court Estate. Many stone houses in the vicinity, which were built for farm workers are now restored and privately owned.
So many more places of interest amongst, Visit Hereford Churches, National Trust gardens The Weir Gardens,Kilpeck - famous for its stone carvings, Abbey Dore - famous for its 12th century Cistercian Abbey
Abbey Dore Court Garden,Arthurs Stone, Dorstone - prehistoric site on Dorstone Hill overlooking the Golden Valley and across to the Black Mountains, Mediaeval Pembridge, Old Chapel Gallery, Pembridge
The small breeds farm park

"A beautiful tranquil hideaway with a warm welcome"
The New Inn is a wonderful homely place, situated in stunning countryside. From the moment we arrived, Daphne made us tremendously welcome. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding countryside, including charming Hay on Wye and the impressive Black Mountains. We don't drive but managed fine with feet, bikes and Daphne's wonderful hospitality; she even took us to the local open mic night. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing break. Thank you Daphne. We hope to return soon.
Thank you for your kind words, and to know you enjoyed your stay and spent some relaxing time.... makes 'my day'..
Wish you all the best in your good work... and I do hope to see you again..
All the very best and a big hug.. Daphne
