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.

Customer reviews from the Glyndŵr's Way

“It was everything that I had hoped. Thanks for organising the trip.”
Mr Henderson, 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
“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
“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
“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
“Organisation and accommodation was all good. Information provided and organisation was very good.”
Mr Bradley, 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
“Number 2 in my top UK walks (after the Pennine Way). Great scenery, no crowds - only met 5 other walkers during the 9 days. Glorious.”
Mr Thorp, Jersey
“I have now finished walking the northern section of Glyndwr's Way and it was a wonderful experience. Thank you for your help in organising my trip. Everything went smoothly, the weather was perfect, and all my accommodations were really excellent.”
