About The Trail

During the 8th century, King Offa of Mercia ordered a great dyke to be built to mark the western boundary of his kingdom with Wales. The Offa's Dyke Path follows the course of this ancient earthwork from Chepstow to Prestatyn, passing through scenery of great beauty and variety along the way.

The trail visits a succession of historic border towns and attractive villages including Monmouth, Hay-on-Wye and Welshpool. There is also plenty of historic interest along the trail, including Chepstow Castle, the ruin of Tintern Abbey and the imposing stronghold of White Castle, to name just a few.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to walk the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Customer reviews from the Offa's Dyke Path

“Really nice walk, not over-challenging. Very rural, not much between each stop and the next. The instructions and advice were well.”

Mr Smoothy, Australia
“We all enjoyed the walk very much. An excellent variety of paths and views. It was all good.”
Mr Newton, UK
“Thank you for organising my holiday; I had an excellent time, and without exception, the accommodation was as excellent. Everyone at the accommodation was so friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to arrive at the next place and find my bag already there and to have a drink, a shower and get changed. Each accommodation was unique, but in no case could I imagine how it might be improved. The instructions for each day were excellent, and I had no problem in following them.”
Mr Henderson, UK
“A beautiful and quiet part of the world. Lovely varied waking along ridges and through woods and valleys.”
Mr Moon, UK
“We have had a lot of walking experience and we enjoyed it very much. Yes, the staff have been very helpful each time my husband telephoned and we both enjoyed having a detailed holiday pack.”
