Visit the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean

Places to stay, things to do, good food and drink

A to Z of the DeanWye: Y is for…

River Y (Wye)

The River Wye (WelshAfon Gwy) is the fifth-longest river in the UK, stretching some 215 kilometres (134 mi) from its source on Plynlimon in mid Wales to the Severn estuary. For much of its length the river forms part of the border between England and Wales. The Wye Valley (lower part) is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.[1][2] The Wye is important for nature conservation and recreation.

Mrs Mills’ Yurts  – May Hill Glamping

Each Yurt has a luxury king-size bed, duck feather duvet and pillows to sink into.  They have a woodburner that will be lit for you before arrival,  if in the chillier months and allows for an open crown for when the sun is shining.  The south-west facing site means it is basked in sunshine in the summer months and always has a view of glorious sunsets across the valley if nature decides to offer one up.

The woodburner will heat a large kettle from which you can fill the vintage washstands of an evening.  The hotplates mean you can warm one of Mrs Mills’ delicious stews and tear off chunks of sourdough bread into it as the sun goes down.  A menu can be found in your Yurt along with a nip of sherry to work up an appetite.

Each yurt has their own fire pit, a barbeque and a gas camping stove to cover all possible ways to cook.
