Walking

Our central location means that you are spoilt for choice for days out walking. Mid Wales offers quiet, secluded walks along mountain paths, wooded valleys, stunning lakes, and meandering, babbling rivers – or dramatic mountain views.

The wild, open expanses of the Cambrian or Berwyn Mountains also have their own character and appeal; both are littered with the remains of ancient forts or mining settlements, and offer ever changing views of harsh and stunning beauty.

The coasts bring another kind of experience. To the west is Cardigan Bay, which is open to the Irish Sea, and has a slightly wilder coastline and sometimes big surf. To the north, being a little more sheltered perhaps, can be more genteel, but is no less ruggedly beautiful. Both are dotted with fishing villages and connected by the Wales Coastal Path.

We have a comprehensive range of ordnance survey maps and local guides that you are welcome to borrow, and are happy to advise on walking routes, depending on your interests and capabilities.

We also have some routes from Gwaenynog that we have done ourselves.

A luggage transfer service is available to those wishing to enjoy a car free holiday.

Walking routes and maps

Leaping Stiles is an excellent site that features a series of walks of varying length, based around Mid Wales, with a circular walk in Pontrobert, just down the road.

Additionally, we have the Ann Griffiths Walk (who was a Welsh 18th Century Hymn-writer, lived locally and is buried in Llanfihangel) and is commemorated by a specific 7 mile walk which goes through Dolanog; and then there’s Glyndŵr’s Way Trail crossing through Dolanog (both are 1 mile away). We’re also happy to pick-up/drop-off at various local points on Glyndŵr’s Way – which I know helps some people who don’t like to carry their luggage, or just means you can stop in one place for longer. Please just give us lots of notice – or when you book.

Don’t forget that after a long day hiking you won’t need to hunt around for somewhere decent to eat. Two/three course evening meals are available most nights, and we are licensed too.
