A very well marked route with plenty of scope to add on the miles. Fantastic views and well maintained paths and tracks. Really great for dogs. Parking is cheap too, £4.50 for the whole day.

Did the trail with the family this August. Quite refreshing that it’s very empty and peaceful but expect some challenging climbs. Good B&Bs along the route. Most of the route is well marked other than in a couple of areas. You need to be comfortable...More

Well signposted. Some of the most beautiful views of rural Wales to be had on this walk. Well worth the physical effort in order to see parts of Wales not typically seen on road journeys.

Beautiful part of Great Britain, great views and plenty of different terrains we walked up through the woods across open fields and down a hill of ferns. Fresh air and lots of walking.

We stayed in Knighton (which is the starting point) and only walked a short way along Glyndwr's way but would have loved to have done more. Despite the showers, the dell at the start of the walk was delightful - rippling tream, benches, a place...More

We took a circular route from Knighton around Garth Hill, which included a section of Glyndwr's Way. We found it a little tricky to get onto the footpath from the town as stuff had changed since the walk guide was written. However, once established on...More

One of the few walks in the UK -apart from Scotland- where one can truly believe that you have left civilization behind! The scenery is beautiful with rolling hills. Not too taxing, but plan your stop over's, accommodation not plentiful. A rewarding walk on the...More
