16/10/2017: Change of Scene? Try the Constantly Changing Scenes Here

In the later part of autumn, the Wye Valley scenery becomes more dramatic. The soft green curves of summer giving way to an ever changing kaleidoscope of foliage colours paints picture after picture for those of us lucky enough to spend time here.

Spending a few days at the Sloop gives you a great location for long, romantic walks, breathtaking views and fascinating places to explore or forage fungi. The season for many edible varieties starts in November.

Then at the end of the day, you can enjoy great company, hearty, warming food, local ales and traditional pub atmosphere while you warm yourself by the open fires. With Chepstow and Monmouth both a short distance away, there is plenty here for history lovers to soak up too. From the birth of two Kings of England, to the Chartists' trial in Victorian times, as well as shipbuilding and iron foundry relics going back many centuries, this area has a wealth of stories to tell.
