     Route and Accommodation Guide




132 miles / 212 km from Knighton, on the English border, where it links with the celebrated Offa's Dyke Path. Running in a giant horse-shoe, it passes small market towns and quiet villages, traversing Wales to Machynlleth near the Dyfi estuary and back again across Wales to Welshpool. A circuit can be completed using a section of Offa's Dyke path between Welshpool and Knighton.


A scenic route through central Wales visiting many sites associated with the 15th century hero Owain Glyndwr who led an  ultimately ill-fated rebellion against English rule. This superb walk through some of the finest scenery in Wales visits many of the sites connected with his campaign for an independent Welsh nation.
