Wye Valley Wales, best place to stay?

Anyone have a favorite hotel, Inn, Country House or B&B that they like in the Wye Valley area? Somewhere around
3-4 star, lots of atmosphere and charm and a good restaurant on site or nice restaurants within walking distance?

Can't wait to see Wales!

Dear Canajoharie,

When we visited, we stayed with friends. But I hope by answering this it will send it back to the top of the list and you might get some action on your question.

It's a beautiful region. We enjoyed Chepstow Castle, and basically had the Tintern Abbey property to ourselves. Very lovely.

Thanks for the reply! So many people and books talk about how lovely the Wye Valley is that I thought it sounded like a good route to head towards northern Wales.

Do you have any suggestions of small towns or villages that looked appealing for an overnight stay with which I could start my search?

Thanks again
Canjoharie

The Brecon Beacons are just over the hill, the Forest of Dean up the road. Lots of small villages around. Hay on Wye if you're a book enthusiast.

Two recommended places...

www.tudorfarmhousehotel.co.uk

www.llangoedhall.com

also look at

www.visitwyevalley.com

Also a tip - when you know the name of a village or town you'd like to know a bit more about, or if there is accommodation there, go to google.co.uk, and then type in the search box the words 'tourist board' followed by the name of the place, and up come your links. For example - tourist board tintern - and it shows there are several B&Bs and the Abbey hotel nearby.

The countryside is stunning around that area - the small road than runs along the foot of the Black Mountains from Llanvihangel Crucorney (on the A465 just north of Abergavenny) to Hay-on-Wye is delightful, with the ruins of Llanthony Priory (there is a little inn there with rooms).

Have a great trip.

That road is VERY narrow. We met a huge RV with German plates there once and had to reverse for about a mile. The driver looked really stressed out after coming over from Hay. He was on his way to Llanthony...yes, it's beautiful there. Do you remember it in the 60s? They used to serve beer out of jugs in the cellar of the Abbey. It's moved on a bit from then!
