Wye River Restaurants

Published on June 7, 2018 by gizmo

Most of us on Group Holidays tend to spend the evenings in with friends and family wining and dining or maybe at the local pub enjoying a bit of social time with the locals but for those who fancy something a bit different here's three ideas for you to consider, all within easy striking distance of our Group Holiday Homes.

Nighttime Photography

If you’re a keen photographer wanting to upskill and fancy your hand at something new David Broadbent is leading a Dark Skies Photography course humblebynature.coma farm owned by TV presenter Kate Humble. Participants learn techniques for capturing images in low light. If it is a clear night, the focus will be on the moon and stars – what else? In cloudy weather, Broadbent covers light painting (outlining objects with torches), and the effects of wire wool and sparklers. He also offers one-on-one tuition (£125pp). The venue is just a short drive from 2 of our self catering group holiday homes, Highcloud Farm and Orchard House

Nighttime Mountain Biking

I’d always thought that mountain biking was an activity confined to daylight hours. How wrong I was. Apparently there’s nothing quite like hammering down a wooded trail lit only by a head torch and a bike lamp so for all you daredevils out there. Night mountain biking rides are offered by Pedalabikeaway Cycle Centre in the Cannop Valley for proficient mountain bikers (last Thursday of the month, 6-8.30pm, pedalabikeaway.co.uk, click on “events”). For the princely sum of £8 you can get a beer or cider and a curry as well. Even better, its just a 10 minute cycle ride from River Wye Lodge and The Anchor our lovely group accommodation in Lydbrook

Nighttime Guided walks

For the more sedate among us there’s always Nighttime Guided walks where rangers lead activities including night-vision walks. In the Forest of Dean, ranger Gerry O’Brien runs 90-minute night walks, where guests use bat scanners and infrared scopes to spot wildlife such as fallow, muntjac and roe deer, hedgehogs, tawny owls and wild boar (£12pp, over-11s, forestholidays.co.uk). If you’re staying at Hollytree House and need a change this could be just what you need.

Meet The Author
I own a small vacation rental management company, Big House Holiday Lets, in the UK. Our 8 houses are similar: sleep 20+ people and all are located in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley . When I'm not getting bookings for my clients I can usually be found making Cider (and winning prizes...) at Cleeve Orchard Cider and Perry at my home in Ross on Wye.
