A Walking Holiday on Glyndwr's Way will take you to some of the most remote and unspoilt countryside in Wales.
Your holiday will start in Knighton, on the English side of the Welsh border, where Glyndwr's Way meanders through open moorland, rolling farmland, woods and forests finishing in Welshpool. Here you are only 3 miles from Offa's Dyke and it is possible to follow the Offa's Dyke path for 30 miles - back to the start of Glyndwr’s Way at Knighton.
The most westerly point of this walk takes you into Machynlleth which, for a short while in the 15th century, was declared the capital of Wales by Owain Glyndwr whose followers proclaimed him the Prince of Wales.
Follow the walking trail through the heart of mid Wales and you will be amazed at 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. You will experience the opportunity to spot skylarks, buzzards and red kite, peregrines, owls and hen harriers.
A walking holiday on Glyndwr's Way can be taken as a whole, or split into 2 sections. With varied walking itineraries from 5 to 14 days there is sure to be a walk to suit you.
In Machynlleth you can see Glyndwr's Parliament House. The highest point of this walk is Foel Fadian (1850 ft / 564m) and from here red kite can often be seen, wheeling around effortlessly on the thermals.
