Walking Holidays in Wales

Radnorshire offers superb off the beaten track walking, whether you want a gentle stroll or a day's hike, there is something to suit everyone. The walking is varied including open hill, farm land, quiet lanes, old tracks and by ways. Red kites, buzzards, skylarks and hares are some of the wildlife that can be seen and heard as you walk.

Two footpaths cross the farm and lead on to other public footpaths and a green lane which takes you across the hill.  There is a marked walk around the farm which is a pleasant stroll alongside the stream and around the top fields.  Another pleasant short walk from the farm is a circular one that takes you across fields with views in all directions, and then loops back and up our lane.

Local Walks

In your accommodation you will find Walking around Llandrindod Wells, a booklet with twenty walks of different lengths and grade.  Slightly further afield there are some wonderful walks on open hill around Glascwm, Aberedw and Hundred House.

Offa‘s Dyke National Trail

Offa's Dyke is a linear earthwork which roughly follows the Welsh/English boundary. It stretches for 177 miles.  The stretches between Knighton and Kington, and Kington and Hay on Wye are easily accessible and cover some of the most stunning countryside.

The flora and fauna are as rich and as varied as the scenery. The Offa's Dyke Centre is in Knighton.

Glyndwr’s Way

Glyndwr’s Way begins at Knighton and meanders through open moorland, rolling farmland, woodland and forest of Mid Wales.  The stretch between Knighton, Llangunllo and Llanbadarn Fynydd is easily accessible and travels over Beacon Hill before dropping down to the River Ithon at Llanbadarn.

Wye Valley Walk

The Wye Valley Walk is a perfect mix of hill and river walking. The stretch from Rhayader to Builth Wells and then onto Hay on Wye runs alongside the Wye at its more boisterous before it reaches the quieter stretches further down stream.

Guestbook

“OUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO STAY!” This was our second stay (and, hopefully, not the last by a long way) at Straw Cottage and we loved it just as much this Spring as last Summer. It is the best place I've ever found to give ourselves a much needed break from the pressures of modern life, yet it is still comfortable, cosy and just lovely. We kept nice and warm on the squashy sofas around the log burning stove in the evenings and played many family board games. During the day, we made outdoor fires in the fire pit, the kids and the dog played in the stream and the woods and rode their bikes, while the adults relaxed on the porch with books, magazines and guitar playing. And we all love the tree swing! Thank you to the lovely hosts, Margot and Anthony, for providing such a wonderful holiday experience.
