The gentle, unfrequented countryside of Powys in mid-Wales has a charm all its own. Glyndwr’s Way (Llwybr Glyndwr) is a 135-mile National Trail named after the remarkable late-medieval Welsh leader Owain Glyndwr, and is one of three National Trails in Wales. It links at either end with the Offa's Dyke Path, and this guidebook includes the two days along the Offa's Dyke Path to create a circular route.
Glyndwr's Way is one of the quietest National Trails, exploring sparsely populated countryside, featuring a succession of hills and valleys. Although much of the terrain is remote and you're likely to have many sections to yourself, the route is a National Trail and clearly waymarked with distinctive dragon symbols throughout and there is accommodation available at the end of every stage if you prefer not to camp.
This guidebook divides the trail into nine day stages, starting at Knighton and ending at Welshpool. After Day 4 there is an optional ascent of Pumlimon Fawr, which will require an extra day. Days 10 and 11 follow the Offa's Dyke Path to complete a circular walk.
Day 5 - Dylife to Machynlleth - The route between Y Grug and Glaslyn, has been officially re-aligned over two short stretches. First, after passing Y Grug and crossing a footbridge over a stream, there is now no 'bare rock' or 'stile' to cross. Simply follow the new path to join a track near a building. Shortly afterwards, the 'very wet and boggy' path described in the guide is no longer part of the route. Simply follow the clear, firm, dry track onwards, turning right, then continue towards Glaslyn and Foel Fadian. The track is marked on the map as an 'alternative' option, so please now regard it as the 'official' route.
Accommodation is available in Staylittle at Rock Villa B&B (www.rockvillabandb.co.uk).
