Our family walks follow routes that are chosen to offer a leisurely stroll for families with younger children who want to explore the countryside. While we endeavour to choose paths that don’t provide too much of a challenge we must let you know that the routes for this weekend are not pushchair friendly. We also have not been able to help ourselves in wanting to share some of our most spectacular landscapes while believing that no one is too young to reach some of the best views with a little encouragement. So, while we are in this magical landscape this route does have a few ascents that we will take at a comfortable pace for all.

Leaving the Old station this walk takes us through the pretty village of Brockweir and up onto the Offa’s Dyke Path. The route is shaded for the most part as it hugs the contours of the valley on the English side passing though woodlands. The first part of the journey offers spectacular views of Tintern while the second half shares some of the prettiest snaps of the River Wye.
