Here in the heart of the Wye Valley, which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty it is a walker’s paradise - Lugano is situated on the Wye Valley Walk and just across the river is the Offas Dyke Footpath. Many local walks on the banks of the Wye or through the woods to some of the local beauty spots including Cleddon Shoots, an impressive waterfall after heavy rain. This is said to have inspired the poet, William Wordsworth, to compose the famous poem, “Lines”.

The area is well served with inns and restaurants with the village pub just two hundred yards away, serving real ales and home cooked food in its re-furbished restaurant, bar and prize-winning beer garden.
