Stayed at Sink Green in mid-August ….

Stayed at Sink Green in mid-August whilst attending a week long training course nearby. The course was very full on and intense, so it was lovely to come back to Sink Green and relax in the farmhouse or go for a walk along the river to clear my head. Sue was a great hostess, the room clean, comfortable and well equipped with a fabulous shower – just what I needed to wake up for another day’s hard training. Oh and the view from the window across green meadows was very relaxing. The full English breakfasts were superb, the Wi-Fi always working well and fast. When a few of us ordered a meal to be delivered to the farm one evening, Sue was kind enough to lay the table for dinner and take everything away again and wash it all, even though that’s not really in the remit of a B&B host. But she did it anyway, which was kind of her. You won’t be disappointed if you stay here.

Mordiford Circular Walk

Breath taking views, peace and tranquility thoughout the woodland.

A 4 mile circular walk: Time: 2-3 hours

This walk is around the northern part of the Wye Valley taking in Backbury Hill, the pretty Pentaloe Brook and the village of Mordiford (the bridge at Mordiford dates back to the 14th century and is one of the oldest bridges in Herefordshire). A beautifully varied route with sections of woodland, pastures, village lanes, meadows and old tracks, you will be rewarded with glorious views throughout. Mordiford is best known for the legend of its dragon which was said to drink from the confluence of the Rivers Lugg and Wye and you will see a dragon symbol on many of the waymarks along the way……..

Beer On The Wye

7th to 9th July

Following the success of last year, Herefordshire’s biggest beer and cider festival is set to return to the banks of the River Wye at the city’s rowing club.

Over 120 different beers (of every conceivable style, hue and strength) from the length of breath of the nation will feature on the main Beer Bar – a leviathan of barrels stretching for over 120 feet.

Beer On The Wye

Beer On The Wye, Hereford

Cider on the Wye​
It may be called Beer on the Wye, but the festival’s Cider Bar boasts over 120 different ciders and perries – a hundred of them from Herefordshire producers alone.

Relax on the Wye​
With its wonderful laid-back atmosphere set in a riverside meadow in the historic heart of Hereford, Beer on the Wye has become a ‘must-do’ festival for many.

Dine on the Wye​
Again there will be an extensive choice of sensibly-priced hot and cold food to help proceedings along. Besides staples such as fish and chips, pizza and a griddle, there will be a hog roast, pies, pasties and falafels. Food is available at all times and includes a number of vegetarian options. There is a hot breakfast service provided on the Saturday and Sunday for those camping.w

Family Fun on the Wye​
Beer on the Wye is a family-friendly event. It’s always trouble-free and we they are happy to admit accompanied, well-behaved children up to 6pm. However, the best time for families is without doubt our popular Family Fun Day on the Sunday.
