Wye Valley Walk
The walk is listed as 136 miles, but for various reasons - side excursions to see sights, exploring towns, extra miles to reach B&Bs - we walked quite a few more miles than that. The Wye Valley is as lovely as its name sounds. The river flows roughly north-to-south, starting on the slopes of Plynlimon Mountain in mid-Wales. The path is often beside the river, but it's just as often up in the hills nearby. We walked upstream, south-to-north, starting in Chepstow, close to the place where the Wye flows into the Severn Estuary.

B&Bs and transport luggage. The red line is the walk
and the black dashed line is the Wales-England border.
The map below is from the very helpful web site for the Wye Valley Walk. The site has lots of information, including a list of B&Bs near the route.
