Wye Valley Archery is a family friendly, custom built field archery course.
We are located in the beautiful setting of the Wye Valley between the ancient market town of Chepstow and the City of Newport, 3.7 miles from Chepstow along the A48 near Crick.
We are approximately 30 minutes from Cardiff and Bristol, 40 minutes from Bath, 50 minutes from Cheltenham and Gloucester, and 60 minutes from Swindon. This puts archers from Monmouthshire, Glamorgan, Brecknockshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset all within easy striking range of a good day out shooting!
Experience levels range from those who want to "have a go", through to master bowmen. We welcome individuals, families and groups. Archers can start from 7 years old.
We are available for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and stag / hen parties (so long as you are not hungover/inebriated). We are also available for team building and corporate events.
Equipment is available to hire by prior arrangement.
We operate on a pay and play basis, subject to conditions. There are NO membership fees. At registration, everyone using the course is required to "Sign In" to the log book after reading and agreeing to abide by the course rules. This is followed by a safety talk and induction.
Field Archery is an outdoor sport, therefore sensible footwear and suitable, weather appropriate clothing is necessary. No shorts or high heels please.
We ask that everyone who uses the course respects the resident wildlife and the surrounding habitat.
