    “The Wye Valley is a beautiful area and the Applestore is a comfortable, well-equipped cottage.”


    We found there was quite a lot to see and do, even in January. We had a good lunch at the Old Court hotel in Whitchurch. We visited the village church in Kempley where some of the wall paintings go back to the 1100s when the church was built. Well worth the visit We visited Goodrich. We went to the church service in Goodrich on the Sunday morning where we were warmly welcomed. We had lunch at the castle and then enjoyed going round it - it has an amazing position overlooking the River Wye. And then we went up to Symonds Yat Rock, where the views are superb. We had a few hours in Monmouth, the Monnow bridge is interesting and there are plenty of shops. We visited Tintern Abbey - the weather forecast for sunshine proved inaccurate, there was quite a lot of rain, but it was still worth visiting. Like Fountains Abbey and Rievaulx that we know well, it was a Cistercian foundation, and we could certainly see similarities.

Boasting lovely walks in every direction, Whitchurch has a thriving village shop and coffee shop selling locally sourced products, a pub and a restaurant.
