About the trail

In the early 15th century, Owain Glyndŵr led an ill-fated rebellion against English rule. This superb walk through some of the finest scenery in Wales visits many of the sites connected with his campaign for an independent Welsh nation. Beginning in the old market town of Knighton on the English border, the walk enjoys a landscape of rich farmland, rounded hills, quiet forests, gentle riverbanks and hidden valleys, with excellent, far-reaching views throughout.

As well as many wonderful little settlements, the trail boasts a wealth of amazing history to discover, with landmarks of interest including the ruins of Abbey Cwmhir and the magnificent Powis Castle.

Customer reviews from the Glyndŵr's Way

“Fulfilling hike with great countryside and remarkably friendly/chatty farmers. Hardly anyone else around so one for those who like to be alone.”
Mr Wright, UK
“The walks and the overnight stays were great. I had, except for the weather, high expectations, and you lived up to them.”
Mr Snippe, Germany
“I did enjoy the walk, though it was certainly challenging in terms of ups and downs, and I speak as one who has done many long-distance walks over a number of years.”
Mr McDowell, UK
“In respect of the walk as a whole it was thoroughly enjoyable and probably one of the most challenging and satisfying walks we’ve undertaken. We chose to walk Glyndwr’s Way because of the remoteness it suggests and we certainly weren’t disappointed. We would definitely recommend this walk for anyone looking for something different.”
Mrs Davies, Isle of Man
“For hardy walkers, this is a quiet, fairly demanding walk and the scenery is second to none. I think we have already proved that we will book with you again by having easily reached double figures in booking.”
Mrs Deadman, UK
“Excellent organisation and choice of overnight stopovers. Too many highlights to say which section was best.”
Mr Whitehorn, UK
“Gloriously remote, stunningly beautiful and varied scenery, excellent directions and fantastic accommodation with superbly friendly welcoming hosts! Hillier than expected but much better for it!”
Mrs Lyall, UK
“It was a great pleasure to walk Glyndwr´s Way. I was surprised, that I met so few other walkers on that way. You did a good job. The accommodations were very good. The lifts to and from the accommodations were well organised, there were no problems.”
Mr Witzel, Germany
“Very hilly route. The standard of accommodation was very good & everybody we met was friendly & helpful.”
Mr Crook, UK
