The Black Mountains and the Llanthony Valley provide superb walking with literally hundreds of miles before you. The Offa's Dyke path is right above to the north; Hay Bluff has stunning views; a walk along the spine of the Cat's Back on a windy day is not for the faint hearted - so you could meander through the little waterfalls to the crest of Lord Hereford's Knob. It really is great walking country, with two or three pubs a couple of hours' walk away that are open for lunch.

Further afield, there are mountains to climb, rivers to paddle across, and mountain bikes to hire.

Or, for some quiet contemplation, as the canons and friars were wont to do, why not sit among the ruins of Llanthony Priory with a pint of beer in your hand?
