Wye Green self catering accommodation is in the attractive village of Redbrook, just two miles south of the county town of Monmouth, in the Wye Valley. The village sits on the county borders of Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, and the national borders of England and Wales. So it’s an ideal base to explore the history, activities, adventures and culture on offer in the Wye Valley, the Forest of Dean and more widely around the area.
Both the Wye Valley Walk and Offa’s Dyke Path pass directly through the village. There is a popular fishery in Redbrook and canoe hire is available in Monmouth and other towns further up river, and the village river banks are popular resting or landing points.
Redbrook has an interesting history, and although there is little evidence of it now, an industrial past that included milling, copper production and the manufacture of the finest hand rolled tinplate from the late 18th century until as recently as 1962.
The village now has a mature and active community with a village store and post office, church, community hall, school, two good inns, an annual Hog Roast on the Village Green and Live on the Wye Music Festival on the Football pitch.
