Things to see and do!

Hay on Wye

Hay-on-Wye is a small market town just 10 minutes from Cwmbach. Located on the border between England and Wales it is fondly known to the locals as ‘Hay’.

Once you’ve visited Hay you will be coming back for more. It is a centre for outdoor activities, there are great cafes and restaurants, weekly markets selling local produce, walking tours and a wide range of shops and galleries.

Not to mention all the labyrinthine bookshops!

We are located not far (only a few miles) from the Offa’s Dyke Path which runs through Hay-on-Wye. We serve as an ideal stopping off point on this walk to recover and recuperate. We can discuss collecting and dropping off walkers at key stages of the walk locally.

The Wye Valley

Glasbury, just a mile from Cwmbach, is the launching point for many of the canoeing and kayaking trips along the Wye.

Many Wye Valley walks can be taken from the local area with a network of footpaths crisscrossing the region.

The national cycle route ‘8’ runs past the door of Cwmbach Lodge. We have secure facilities for bicycles and would welcome any cyclists attempting all or part of this beautiful route through Wales.
