Wales, Hereford, Devon, Sussex & Essex Tour 2016

July 2016 saw 6 enthusiastic riders head out across the channel to UK again. Taking the ferry from Rotterdam to Hull the tour started just across the Humber Bridge at South Ferriby.  

The first leg (day) took us south along the Trent and then west into the Peak District National Park. Final destination just west of Stoke on Trent in the village of Hill Chorlton. Overnight stay was at Slaters Country Inn. A lovely venue with comfortable accommodation and quality food and beer.

Day 2, takes you West into Wales and then down through the centre of Wales south through to the Brecon Beacons National Park. The tour then heads Eastwards through to the Wye Valley and the overnight stay at the Cottage of Content in Carey. This quirky but quintessentially English country pub is a gem in the Wye valley and really worthy of an overnight stay.
