Walk Through Wales’ Ancient Paths and Stunning Coastlines

"This holiday exceeded our expectations! Everything was well organised, including all the info to get to/from walks and the walks were well planned out. The B&B was just perfect, as were our hosts. We are already thinking of having an even longer walking holiday next year - thank-you."
F & E (Llangollen Short Break) May 2018

Enderli (Anglesey Coast Path) September 2017
"This is a great track with lovely and varied scenery. The accommodation was comfortable, very friendly & welcoming to tired walkers and sent us refreshed in the morning. Lovely, thanks."
Bautz (Ceredigion) May 2017
"This is a lovely walk, not too ambitious, but absolutely beautiful in the spring. The walk from Dylife to Machynlleth on a glorious spring day was totally memorable. After such a pleasant stay with Maya at Bron Y Llys we were already singing, but the views at Glaslyn blew us away. We were warmly welcomed by everyone in Mid Wales and would encourage anyone thinking of doing this walk to book up."
East (Glyndŵr’s Way) July 2017
"Celtic Trails compared very well with other companies. Pleased with accommodation, especially with our request regarding bed sizes - which went without a hitch, Thank-you."
Jones (Glyndŵr’s Way) June 2017
"Thanks Nathan. You were great & we enjoyed dealing with you. Next time Ireland!"
Whitley (Gower Coast Path) August 2017
"We found Celtic Trails to be better than other companies, and Karen & Paul are perfect hosts, informative, helpful, gracious and witty. We spent four days there, loved every one. Plus, The Three Castles hiking was wonderful!"
Noonan (Three Castles Walk) April 2017
"The whole trip was very well organised with no hitches. The daily distances were just right and the accommodation/hospitality was superb, thanks a lot."
Wild (Offa's Dyke Path) October 2017
"Very positive feedback about Celtic Trails from all B&B owners! [I enjoyed] that I didn't need to worry about accommodation or luggage."
T.M. (Offa's Dyke Path) September 2017
"[I enjoyed] the variety of the landscape, the river, the silence - all in all there is not much tarmac on this walk. I find walking a long-distance track most relaxing, especially when there is enough time and only a light backpack to carry. There is nothing much to decide. You just get up in the morning and go on. It’s a very good way to slow down."
Hennike (Wye Valley) August 2016
"We had narrowed down our search to five companies, asking for suggestions & recommendations from all. Celtic Trails was the only company that did not parrot back what was on their website and actually gave us a suggested itinerary based on the parameters I had outlined. Well done Celtic Trails!"
Dzwoncyk (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) June 2017
We're very impressed & will recommend C.T. to others. Thank you very much for a wonderful trip!'
Vaughn (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) May 2017
"Very favourable! Outstanding service from Jo adding [my friends] to different sections along the route. Organised transfers to and from the trail appreciated."
Hides (Offa's Dyke Path) June 2017
"Overall, I am extremely pleased with out experience with Celtic Trails! Even before our trip, e-mails were responded to quickly. I was also so impressed with the friendliness of all the people we met. They were always willing to share information and give directions."
Berkowitz (Llŷn Coast Path) May 2014
"Luggage and private transfer was perfect. I used to organise and carry everything myself. Celtic Trails makes everything nice and a lot easier. I like walking from one destination to the next, rather than staying in one place. I recommend Celtic Trails. Thank you very much! I had a wonderful week."
Kimmich-Laux (Ceredigion Coast Path) May 2016
"It was an excellent holiday. Northern Wales was spectacular, we will recommend this area to anyone. Nathan was fantastic! He gave great advice and always got back to us promptly. Thank you so much for everything. So great!"
B. P (Llŷn Coast Path) July 2017
"Dear Anne, thank you so much for your great support to make a superb holiday. Combination of Coastal walking and days in Capel Curig was a brilliant experience ( nb. also walking in Snowdonia - Celtic Trails). Friendly Welsh people, fantastic nature. Many thanks for your organisation."
Weland (Llŷn Coast Path) April 2014
"Beautiful and varied scenery, friendly very helpful people, the baby lambs! I am extremely pleased with our experience with Celtic Trails. Even before our trip, emails were responded to quickly and efficiently and I was also impressed with the friendliness of all the people there."
Kunst (Llŷn Coast Path) May 2014
"Overall a great and unforgettable experience. The changing scenery, the sea, the birds; I saw some dolphins beneath Nant Gwrtheyrn and behind Whistling Sands was met by a badger mother carrying it’s own little one in its mouth. Everywhere I found kind and helpful people – I even met an elderly lady who had also walked a lot with Celtic Trails! Thank you for organising a very enjoyable holiday."
Bailey (Llŷn Coast Path) August 2012
"I heard from the B&Bs that you dear Kate, are the best! They love the way you work! Bravo! I will come back next year, I want to finish this beautiful path. Thank you Kate! It was wonderful! Contact you next year!"
Berger (Offa's Dyke Path) August 2017
"Finished at last, de Mendonca and I have finished the Offa's Dyke Path. What a glory. Thank you for arranging such good weather. Just to say all your arrangements worked like clockwork. The B&Bs were very good indeed. All were good and I expect that they will appeal to different people."
Bell & de Mendonca (Offa's Dyke Path) June 2017
"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days walking the Southern part of Offa's Dyke. It exceeded our expectations. The views are stunning (even in the rain!). The walking was easy, even if there were a few tough climbs. It was our first long-distance walk together and we certainly are encouraged to do it again. Celtic Trails were excellent (and patient with our changing plans). The choice of B&Bs and hotels along the path were perfect, and it was such a treat to find our luggage in our room each evening."
French (Offa's Dyke Path) June 2017
"Thank you for organising such an excellent holiday for our first long distance walk. The accommodations were warm and welcoming and didn't flinch at the sight of our muddy boots and trousers! Some hosts were outstanding and it was tempting to stay with them for longer! We would like to come again as most impressed."
Holmes (Offa's Dyke Path) October 2016
"Nice trip, well organised, we’ll use C.T again + recommend it! We are very satisfied with your experience + your organisation! We’ll be back another time. Every afternoon it was a pleasant surprise to find ourselves in another of your chosen accommodation sites, after a full day of walking through the Welsh mountains, hills & fields."
Penn (Offa's Dyke Path) September 2016
"Overall, very impressive. Offa’s Dyke is a tremendous walk. All the accommodation was very good and several of the B&B’s, were outstanding. Thank you for rescuing me when the booking in Monmouth went wrong – you did this very well and the replacement B&B was excellent."
Sibly (Offa's Dyke Path) September 2016
"I thoroughly enjoyed the walk, knowing that at the end of a walking day a nice accommodation, hot shower and a friendly host was expecting me!"
Seewer (Offa's Dyke Path) June 2016
"Hello Penny. Got back yesterday from my Offa’s Dyke walk which went really well. I thoroughly enjoyed it although I have to admit it was a bit tougher than I had expected!.....This is just to thank you for making a superb holiday possible. Several B&B owners said that Celtic Trails were the best or one of the best companies - so well done."
Kent (Offa's Dyke Path) June 2015
"What really made the holiday special was the quality of accommodation. All the B&B's were extremely welcoming & comfortable. We really appreciated the individuality of each place & the people we met. Thank - you for a lovely holiday."
Peters (Offa's Dyke Path) March 2015
"This is only the second time that I and B. in 40 years of walking in wilderness & other routes have used a company to organise beds, transfers etc. It was such a pleasure! We know at the end of each day our bags, bed + meal were organised and ready, plus all our hosts were so welcoming, it really added an extra dimension of pleasure to our trip Thank you Kate + others at Celtic Trails. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and use your service again."
Fisher (Offa's Dyke Path) July 2014
"I found Offa's Dyke Path a wonderful walk . The variety of landscapes, the terrain, the farms. the towns and villages made ODP a rich walking experience. It certainly whet my appetite for further walks with you. And thank you Penny and the Celtic Trails team, for your organisation once my husband decided to join us."
Ong (Offa's Dyke Path) July 2013
"From my perspective Celtic trails did a great job in every respect. Even a phone call from Penny at the end of the last day'. I (we) will recommend Celtic to everyone. Fantastic job and a big thank - you."
Smith (Offa's Dyke Path) May 2012
"We thoroughly enjoyed walking Offa's Dyke south with Celtic Trails. We walked Offa's Dyke North last year. Overall, price would have been £50-60 per person cheaper than Celtic Trails. But, both my wife and I concluded that it was well worth paying the extra money. We will be definitely use you again. Maybe Hadrian's Wall in 2013!"
Mr & Mrs J Bennet (Offa's Dyke Path) July 2012
"[We enjoyed] going to local pubs, seeing a variety of gorgeous landscapes and meeting new people along the way. The route was even more rural than we expected. We knew there would be some days where there were no restaurants, stores or other facilities, but we didn't realise this would be nearly ever day. We appreciated very much the flawless suitcase delivery service. The Offa's Dyke path provides a great deal of natural beauty and beautiful views of the countryside. We loved seeing these, Thanks for your work in helping us organise such an interesting holiday experience."
E & D Driver (Offa's Dyke Path) July 2012
‘"Great hosts and very amenable. Pub food in the village good and staff very friendly and helpful. Overall a great short break. Thank you."
Greer (Three Castles Walk) September 2016
"We would love to do one of your walks again! The luggage and transportation, support and great accommodation. We enjoyed that the trail led through beautiful country, the views, the sheep + cow, the castles – and at the end of the day, a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay!"

"This is our 6th walking holiday, so we have a good understanding of these tours. We could not fault Celtic Trails for quality & communication, administration, accommodation & assistance. Thank - you all."

There is very little to fault in your organisation, notes, maps and guide books . All the accommodations were of a good standard, the service was excellent."
Parker (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) June 2013
"Dear Kate and all at Celtic Trails ~ Thanks for the most amazing work that made our Pembrokeshire Coast Path trip so wonderful, and memorable.

We look forward to our next walk -can you arrange the same kind of weather again :-)"

"This walk surpassed my expectations in terms of scenery – it was stunning. Celtic Trails organisation made it carefree. Distances were perfect for a relaxed holiday."
Spence (Three Castles Walk) September 2016
"Greatly appreciated the helpfulness and patience shown to us by staff members of Celtic Trails. Many of my questions and concerns were resolved before we even got to Wales! The Hike was wonderful and lodgings were great...thanks so much for your help."
Edmonds (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) May 2015
"We chose Celtic Trails as based in Wales, we thought we would benefit from the staff’s local knowledge. Walking, in our opinion, is the best way to appreciate the variety of the British Countryside. It is instilled with a sense of purpose (there’s no ‘what shall we do today’) and sometimes is a challenge. There is no aspect which could be improved on. We particularly appreciated that our holiday was bespoke with attention paid to detail."
Turner (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) June 2016
"Kate, many thanks for great organisation – The accommodation you chose for us was very caring and everyone along the way said you were the best too!"
Williams (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) May 2015
"We so enjoyed the scenery, the weather, (sun every day!) the beautiful coastline. St Davids was spectacular. Welsh people are so friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Penny, she was so helpful with other parts of our vacation in UK , even before and after the walking holiday started. Many thanks and we will certainly come back to you when we are back in the UK."
Thompson (Pembrokeshire Coast Path August 2016
"I love solitude and wild places, and like to experience a landscape at walking speed, however I do not want to camp when I can enjoy the comfort of a good B&B!"
Hydes (Pembrokeshire Coast Path) July 2014
"We had a wonderful time! It was more than we could've hoped for. The organisation done by your company was outstanding! Thanks for all your help and if we get lucky we might be able to do another trip."
Bagnulo (Offa's Dyke Path) September 2014
''We were delighted with out whole holiday. It was completely worry free and in every sense you took a load off our backs! We were particularly impressed with the arrangements, especially as you had to take the dog into account when booking accommodation, we would thoroughly recommend you as a travel company. Many thanks!"
Jowett September 2014
"I would like to send special thanks to Penny at Celtic Trails for her help in making it possible for me to walk with my dog (Sam). I would also like to single out Knighton Taxis for their excellent, punctual and friendly service."
