Borderlands of Wales Walking Vacation


Wales - Castles & Countryside

The relaxing pace of this area will infect you. Dip in and out of Wales as this tour follows the Border south. You'll be amazed at the rich variety of countryside - the jagged tors and ridges of Shropshire, undulating Welsh pastures and duckponds overlooked by half-timbered houses in Herefordshire.

In valleys of springs of rivers,
By Onny and Tame and Clun,
The county for easy livers,
The quietest under the sun. "
A Shropshire Lad" A. E. Housman

Borderlands of Wales

A narrow valley through the Shropshire Hills brings you to the glorious setting of your first night's stay. Time to unwind before a welcome dinner with your fellow travelers.

Day 2
Explore quintessential sheep grazed Wales. From a ruined fortress perched overlooking Montgomery we move deeper into Wales for a visit to the splendid Castle & gardens of Powys.

Day 3
Walk along the heather clad Long Mynd for a breathtaking start to the day. Superb panoramic views, deep cut valleys and jagged "tors" standing guardian over this myth-laden landscape.

Day 4
Walk along the historic Offa's Dyke - the Welsh equivalent of Hadrians wall. Our route to Ludlow takes us through unspoiled Clun valley. Walk around bustling Ludlow's graceful Georgian streets, courts and back lanes and visit its 900-year-old castle.

Past country halls, watermills, duckponds and half-timbered cottages along the lanes between Herefordshire's "Black & White" villages.

The haven of Hay-on Wye in Wales, known for its antiquarian bookstores is where we start our day. Castles and ruined abbeys await us again in the peaceful Black Mountain National Park and Golden Valley.
