Fishing information.

The Wye & Usk Foundation is a charity concerned with restoring the habitat, water quality and fisheries of the rivers Wye and Usk. The Foundation is more than just a lobbying organisation: through a series of partnership projects, we are raising significant sums of money to remedy problems such as habitat degradation, poor water quality and diffuse pollution, barriers to fish migration and over-exploitation of our fisheries.  Also information and sales of day rods for our beats.

Accomodation and Food

Rock Lodge, Symonds Yat -

Superb modern open-plan apartments and stylish bed & breakfast rooms at Symonds Yat Rock on the Wye Valley.

Set in quiet wooded surroundings, overlooking the stunning Ruardean valley and opposite many footpaths into the Forest of Dean and to the Wye, Symonds Yat Rock Lodge is a peaceful, scenic location ideal for exploring.

Ferndale House B & B This is a lovely place to stay in Upper Lydbrook, with a long history of excellent service and good food. Ferndale House is only a few minutes drive from the Wyebank and Courtfield fisheries and is thoroughly recommended as a short or longer stay destination, both for fishing the river and all the other activities and interests on offer in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.

The Garden Café & Gallery is situated in beautiful Lower Lydbrook on the bank of the River Wye, set within the grounds of Lydbrook House.  The restaurant itself is in the converted Malt House extension, which was originally used to process the malt for local beer.  Guests can dine inside with a view of the open plan kitchen or, if the weather is fine, in the beautiful garden outside.  Also offers holiday accommodating.

The Roost at vine tree -  We are a newly completed self catering holiday let for 2 persons in the village of Bishopswood, not far from the fisheries base.

The Hostelrie at Goodrich, a Country Inn with Rooms is a haven for those looking to explore an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Wye Valley area where outdoor pursuits abound.  There is ease of access off the A40 to the Forest of Dean, rural Herefordshire and Wales.  Whether you are an individual, a couple, family or larger group, you will receive a warm welcome at the ‘Til’ (the locals name for us).  We provide excellent local food cooked fresh to order, a choice of outstanding real ales, cider, world wines, morning coffee and afternoon cream teas (in season) and even packed lunches on request…..add this with a dash of local talented musicians, and you’ve found the perfect getaway with something for everyone!   Facilities consist of a public bar/restaurant, main restaurant, large garden, ample parking, garage lock-up, 7 bedrooms (catering for Dinner, B & B) AND a self catering holiday cottage with it’s own garden.  Dogs welcome in all areas except the main restaurant.
