How to get here
By car and coach:
If you're driving, our postcode will take you to the other side of the river to the hostel. Follow these instructions to find us.
From Ross-on-Wye: Follow the A40 towards Monmouth. After Pencraig (50MPH speed limit) take the next turning on your left, signposted Goodrich. After one mile you will enter the village of Goodrich. Pass Jollies stores on your right and then take the next turn on your left. This is signposted to Welsh Bicknor/Courtfield and the Youth Hostel. Continue over the bridge and up a steep hill. Follow the road for 1½ miles keeping to your left all the way. You will cross a cattle grid and enter an open meadow. 250 meters after the cattle grid is a right hand turn in the meadow, the coach may turn here if agreed or carry on. After another 500 meters you will reach a fork in the road. In the middle of the fork is a green sign which tells you the hostel is to the right and there is also a wooden fenced area on your right. This is the drop off point for coaches. Coaches can continue on the left 300 meters to the farm and use the turning circle there. This route is not suitable for double deckers. If you are approaching by foot, bike, car or minibus you may take the fork to the right and continue down the track for 800 metres to the hostel.
From Monmouth: Follow the A40 towards Ross-on-Wye. At Whitchurch take the B4229 signposted Symonds Yat West. Make an immediate right hand turn which takes you back over the A40 on a bridge. After the bridge take the turn on your left signposted Symonds Yat West/Goodrich/Kearne Bridge. Follow the B4229 towards Goodrich and then follow the directions above.
All school groups and coach parties will be met by a member of the team at the top of the drive. We will transport your luggage in our van to the hostel and a member of the team will walk the group down our drive to the hostel. Please call the hostel direct on 01594 860300 should your arrival time differ from that agreed in advance.
