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, Glyndŵr's Way boasts a wealth of amazing history to discover, with landmarks of interest including the ruins of Abbey Cwmhir and the magnificent Powis Castle.

“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 everything that I had hoped. Thanks for organising the trip.”
Mr Henderson, UK
“Lovely and very diverse countryside, the Glyndwr's way is well sign-posted. Luggage transport was absolutely hassle free. The transfer to and from the starting points for two of the days was surprisingly pleasant. In general, we always found satisfying to very good places for dinner.”
Dr Otto, 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
“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
“Very quiet path, but well-signed and moderate effort required. A real hidden treat.”
Mr Ratcliffe, UK
“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
“Definitely a hidden treasure! A wild and mysterious landscape. This northern section of Glyndwr’s Way seems little used. Signposts are excellent. A wonderfully varied walk with great views, stiff climbs, magical forests, pretty villages. Couldn’t have been better! Seamless service everyone! Many thanks!”
