We four friends, all over 65, walked the northern section of the walk starting from the Bedford Arms Hotel in Llanymynech and finishing four days later at Prestatyn. We delighted in walking across the amazing Pontcysyllte Aquaduct and watched narrow boats crossing as we walked...More

A lovely 1 3/4 mile walk into the picturesque town of Hay from the campsite near Clyro. The trail is easily marked down to the river and past an old Roman Fort area. Once on the River Wye the trail ascends onto the dyke itself....More

OK - late November was not a good month to start the walk and of course it rained and rained. We set off from the banks of the Severn and took three days to reach Pandy. Frankly the countryside was not very special - perhaps...More

Just completed the southern half of Offa's Dyke Path. The walks are challenging with many elevation changes, but the views are spectacular. Poor signage just north of Chepstow led us off of the path and we only found our way with lots of help from...More

Chepstow to Prestatyn, Sept. 24 to Oct. 8. I've had a walk in Britain on my to-do list for many years, so when a friend brought Offa;s Dyke Path to my attention, I was raring to go. I emailed 5 companies that organized the walk...More

Just completed the Knighton to Prestatyn section in 7 days. Excellent walking with many highlights including the Shropshire Hills, Montgomery Canal and Clwydian Mountains. Tough going at times, especially with a pack, so do not underestimate. Also, if booking accommodation yourself as I did, be...More

We walked this between July 11, 2014 and July 23, 2014. It was a wonderful walk. It is not easy. There is a lot of elevation change. The scenery is different every day -- amazingly so. Only rarely was the way-marking insufficient. At those times,...More
