A warm and friendly welcome awaits from Sue, your host at Wye Knot Stop B&B. Amidst the vibrant window boxes and fragrant hanging baskets, this charming and well run little B&B is located in the pretty village of Llyswen, in the Upper Wye Valley. It is also a thriving café and tea room frequented by locals, and of course the odd Freereiner or two finding themselves passing through Llyswen in need of refreshment.
The rooms here are spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed. There is also a cosy lounge to relax in which features snug sofas and a wood burning stove. A delicious full cooked Welsh breakfast will set you up well for a day out on trail. Croissants and lighter options are also offered and food wherever possible is sourced locally.
Your evening meal can be enjoyed at either the Griffin Inn or the Bridge End Inn. The former is an old angler’s tavern and is located adjacent to Wye Knot Stop B&B. The Bridge End Inn is a five minute stroll away – you will more than likley have ridden past it on your way in to Llyswen. The stone built bridge it is positioned by dates back to around 1840. Both inns offer a friendly welcome, a well stocked bar and good home cooked pub food that may be enjoyed next to a roaring log fire.
There is a well stocked little shop in the village for those riders wishing to top up on nibbles for their onward journey.
The hills around Llyswen offer fabulous opportunities for great canters. The countryside has everything from charming country lanes with gorgeous hedgerows to wild and lonely hills. Here all you meet is the diverse wildlife in the form of foxes, badgers, ravens, red kites, and of course the Welsh Mountain Pony.
