A wonderful walk which provides you with great views. Wouldn't want to be doing it in damp conditions as the views would be lost. We took the dogs who need to be kept on lead, sheep & cows, but they enjoyed it as much as we did. If you are in the area and have a dry day, fancy a... More

We are a party of four who have been walking the 180 miles of Offa's Dyke in bite sized pieces over the last 12 months. It has been great fun with a wide variety of scenery and walking. Some miles have been up hill and down dale, while some have been on the flat along canal paths. They have all... More

I have only gotten around to writing this review now, but I had the opportunity to explore Offa's Dyke via a 20 km trail race last spring. This was a splendid opportunity to see firsthand the breathtaking views and experience the rugged terrain of Welsh countryside. The ascents and descents can be challenging, but there are pathways that help you... More

Worth the short walk (less than 2km from the car park we were in) to get to Offa's Dyke and the Devil's Pulpit - through a wonderful area being conservation grazed and some farmland before meeting the dyke. The views were stunning - we went at dusk and looking up the Wye Valley the mists were swirling and it looked... More

This is a walk that's more straneous than most people let you know. We did it in 15 days, which was enough. A shorter time, thus with longer distance per day, would have been too much. Lovely views along the way, but you have steep hills with an ascent of up to 400 meters. We had a total ascent of... More
