What to expect
We’ve got 10 exciting walks on offer throughout the day – ranging from family and wheelchair friendly strolls around the beautiful grounds to day-long hillside hikes to explore the stunning scenery even seeing as far as the glorious Gower and even Somerset.
The festivities kick off at 10am at the marquee with a Samba Band playing and the walks begin at 10.30am.
We’ll have stalls inside the marquee including partners such as Ramblers World Holidays and Cotswolds to give expert advice all day and more information about the Ramblers alongside some yummy Welsh cakes!
If you prefer to walk independently or with your friends and family, you can pick up free Ramblers Routes maps for beautiful walks straight from the marquee. There will also be hot and cold drinks available and the cafe located on site if you’re feeling peckish after your walk.
