Cycling in Symonds Yat & The Wye Valley

From our door, you can cycle many kilometers along quiet country lanes, through tiny hamlets, past old pubs and over the river on wooden footbridges. We could even plan a route for you!

There is also the Forest of Dean and it’s 200km of easy cycle trails, including the popular 15km family cycle route. The inn itself is situated on one of the latest Sustrans Cycle Routes, The Peregrine Path.

The Peregrine Path

The Peregrine Path is a new level cycle route which traces the river from Monmouth along the river to The Saracens. It follows the old railway line for 10km from Hadnock road. It’s a great ride for all ages.

PedalABikeAway offers bike hire from Monmouth every weekend and during the school holidays (April -November). Parking is free and it offers a great day out.
