Walking

Wonderful Welsh Walks right at our hotel entrance! You may like to enjoy a relaxed stroll in our grounds but there are many other walks which you can take to explore the area. We have maps and routes at the hotel which you are welcome to borrow. 

 

Some Suggested Walks

 

Brecon Beacons National Park (Pen y fan 886m, 2907ft)
If you enjoy walking, then you will love the Brecon Beacons National Park. Stroll through sleepy valleys, wander alongside sparkling lakes and reservoirs or hike across some of the most spectacular scenery in southern Britain.

 

Mynydd Epynt is an upland area of mid Wales right on the doorstep of the hotel. So if you want a good upland walk (about 13 miles) directly from the hotel, where you may only come across a farmer tending the sheep, look no further than this walk.

Wye Valley Walk
Imagine one of the most beautiful fully waymarked long distance walks in Britain where you hardly see another walker. That is the case with the Wye Valley Walk which passes close by our front door. Follow the Leaping Salmon signs and the full walk will take you from the Source to the Sea, a distance of 136 miles. Not something to attempt in a weekend, but come and stay and walk part of the spectacular trail.

 

Elan Valley
The Elan Valley, set in the Cambrian Mountains, is another major centre for walking and just a short drive away from the hotel. You can explore this beautiful area with its extensive range of walks around the expansive reservoirs and dams which date back to Victorian times. There are also walks throughout the year led by the Rangers which allow you to appreciate the beauty of the Valley.
Some walks conclude at the Roman Marching Camp or the remains of Nant y Gro dam where the Bouncing Bomb was tested before the legendary Dambusters' raid of the Second World War. Most of these walks are free of charge.
