Glyndwr's Way - Wales

Glyndwr's Way

Glyndwrs Way is located in the breath-taking unspoilt countryside of central Wales. The perfect walking holiday choice for some peace and quiet. The Walking Holiday Company recommend this walk because walking in Wales is just great!

The Glyndwrs Way trail was opened in 2002. It was named after the 15th Century welsh warrior, Owain Glyndwr. He was the last native Welshman to be called the ‘Prince of Wales’, a title bestowed upon him by his loyal followers. He instigated a long and fierce revolt against the English, after King Henry IV failed to mediate fairly between Owain Glyndwr and a neighbour, Lord Reginal Grey.

The Glyndwrs Way is a special walk. Few walking holidays are so remote and unspoilt. Tiny villages and hamlets dotted along the route, and as luck would have it, small train stations at the beginning, middle and end of the Glyndwrs Way. This lends itself well to splitting the route into two more manageable sections, if you don’t have time for the whole thing.

The Walking Holiday Company has many itinerary options for this 135-mile walking holiday. The Glyndwrs Way starts in Knighton, on the Wales-England border. From here the Glyndwrs Way meanders westward. This lovely walking holiday goes through open moorland, rolling farmland, woods and forests toward the welsh coastline. At the half way point, the small town of Machynlleth sits just 10 miles inland from the coast. Here, you can see Glyndwrs Parliament House. In the 15th century, Machynlleth was declared the capital of Wales by Owain Glyndwr. Of course, nowadays it’s Cardiff. From here the route turns north, then eastward. You walk through fantastic landscapes, finishing in Welshpool. Here you are only 3 miles from the Offa's Dyke Path. It is possible to extend your walking holiday by following the Offa's Dyke path for 30 miles, back to the start of the Glyndwr’s Way, at Knighton.

The Glyndwrs Way is a moderate walk, with plenty of hills. Due to its remoteness, The Walking Holiday Company would recommend you are competent with a compass, and map reading abilities. Take a look at the photos on our Glyndwrs Way page to get a feel of the terrain and peacefulness out there on your walking holiday. Follow the walking trail through the heart of mid Wales, to enjoy the panoramic views over the river valleys. The peaks of the Cambrian Mountains and the most beautiful lakes, Llyn Clywedog and Llyn Efyrnwy. The Radnorshire Wildlife Trust has a conservation lease on Beacon Hill Common and the bird life here is abundant. This walking holiday gives the opportunity to spot skylarks, buzzards and red kite, peregrines, owls and hen harriers. Glaslyn is Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust’s largest nature reserve. Part of the Cambrian Mountains, in the summer months the reserve turns pink and purple with abundant flowering heather. The highest point on this walking holiday is Foel Fadian (1850 ft / 564m) and from here red kite can often be seen, wheeling around effortlessly on the thermals.
