Walking Chepstow to Prestatyn

Celtic Trails' offices are located at the beginning of Offa’s Dyke Path in the Wye Valley  and we consider our local knowledge to be second to none.

Offa’s Dyke itself is Britain’s longest ancient monument, an earthwork named after the powerful 8th century Saxon King Offa, who ordered a defensive earthen barrier be built as a monument to his greatness and a discouragement to the hostile Welsh Celtic tribes threatening his kingdom from the west.

In the 12th century, it became the warring border between Welsh nobles and Norman conquerors, who built a string of defensive castles along its length.

Your Offa’s Dyke Path Walk

Offa’s Dyke Path follows the high ground wherever possible with wonderful views over the Welsh and English countryside. You walk through the Black mountains, the Welsh Marches of Herefordshire, Powys and Shropshire, the Berwyn Mountains and the broad grassy Clwydian Hills.

Path Walkthrough

The Offa's Dyke Path follows the ancient earthworks that acted as border between England and Wales. However, the Offa's Dyke Path doesn't stick slavishly to the borderline, and there is a substantial amount missing from the boundary emerging out of the Wye Valley (for reasons which still escape historians to this day). You may find the Welsh Marches to be little-frequented as a whole, and you'll often find long unoccupied stretches as you journey through the ever-changing landscape of Offa's Dyke Path.

Steep ascents and descents are not a common occurrence on this route, although walkers may find that the repeated rising and falling of the route can prove quite strenuous. Arguably, the most challenging sections are found between the Black Mountains, Knighton and Cwm, where there are several steep ascents and descents - though it almost goes without saying that the view from the Black Mountains is particularly memorable, and worth the climb.

    Our Offa’s Dyke Path holidays are available to walk March to October.

    Please note: accommodation in Hay-on-Wye at the end of May tends to get booked up a year ahead due to the Hay Literary Festival. We advise clients to check the dates beforehand to avoid disappointment in availability .

    We typically recommend walking Offa's Dyke between March and October. Although an increased likelihood of poor weather is always a factor, this is also due to the fact that many B&Bs shut up shop for the winter - meaning the choice becomes more limited.

    - July 2023
    Celtic Trails are an easy "turn key" approach to long distance path walking. Very well organised. Top notch accommodations. We've wanted to do Offa's Dyke Path ever since completing the Coast to Coast 10 years ago. This exceeded out (high) expectations. The Welsh countryside, hospitality, great inns, pubs and B&Bs.
    - June 2023
    Celtic Trails allowed us to fully enjoy our walking holiday by organising everything so well and selecting excellent walker-friendly accommodation along the way. It was reassuring to hear that the B&B owners had a high regard for Celtic Trails and that, should we need it, we could call on them for assistance.

    Excellent organisation and service from Celtic Trails. They took all the worry out of finding places to stay and baggage transfers. Totally impressed with the organisation and walking pack.
    - June 2023
    We enjoy the challenge of long-distance paths. Using a company like Celtic Trails takes away the hassle of extra baggage carrying etc. They are a good company to deal with.
    - June 2023
    Celtic Trails and its contractors clearly worked hard in the background to provide a seamless service.

    - June 2023
    Celtic Trails were so thorough, accommodating, friendly and everyone - fellow walkers and hosts - raved about the good care at Celtic Trails.
    - June 2023
    As usual, we had a very good experience. Organized until the tiniest detail. We stayed with nice hosts. We have recommended you (and I believe that Bert, my friend from the Netherlands booked with you). We much liked the rolling hills, the small woods, pubs at the end of the day. In comparison with the Cumbria way, less 'dramatic' though and very dry/arid (I like lakes, even small ones to take a dip and cool off).
    - May 2023
    Well planned itineraries, superb information and communication. I felt confident that my holiday was in good hands from the moment I booked.
    - May 2023
    Setting up a multi-day walking holiday in another country is complicated. Having a knowledgeable and experienced company like Celtic Trails simplifies so many details. We would use them again without hesitation. Sarah, you were prompt and warmly responsive to all of our communications. We truly appreciated your attention to detail and clarity in explaining all arrangements. Everything went well. At our ages (73 and 69), we knew these two walks would be challenging. We were very happy to have completed them successfully and without incident. Add to that the beauty of the Welsh landscape, it was a happy and rewarding experience.
    - May 2023
    Celtic Trails are an excellent locally based walking company that facilitates access to route information, luggage transfers and specially chosen accommodation along the trail. Our experience with Celtic Trails was fabulous in all respects. We absolutely loved the scenrey on the Welsh border and the friendliness and kindness of the people we met. Indeed, we have fallen in love with Wales!!! The whole experience was enhanced by the excellent organisation provided by Celtic Trails and the beautiful weather with which we were blessed for the whole walk. Thank you, Sarah, for always responding promptly and helpfully to any queries we had.
    - May 2023
    My first experience of a walking holiday Celtic Holidays. Sarah and her team were very attentive with my booking from start to finish, which made for a fantastic hiking adventure! I plan to book again next year to complete the Offa?s Dyke Trail. Sincere thanks. I loved the many 365 degree views, the rolling countryside, clean air and freedom to be outside. Walking with good friends and no cooking for a change! It gave me a good taste of walking longer distances over a full week and the opportunity to see how beautiful Wales is. I walked my fist British mountain which I was thrilled to do! Thank you.
    - May 2023
    Amazing scenery, great route, loves the Inns. If I was doing it again, I would spend a rest day in Welshpool rather than Knighton (Powis Castle and Gardens amazing). Well organised, no flaws.
    - May 2023
    Celtic Trails were efficient and trouble free.
    - April 2023

    - April 2023
    Celtic Trails are very well organised - very helpful and well informed and with good ideas to solve problems ie reduced accommodation. I would say book early as we had not realised how busy the accommodation gets. Loved the third day - Monmouth to Llangattock Lingoed the best, the castle and churches were a real surprise and a great delight. We had a great time - and were very lucky with the weather. Arrangements all worked incredibly smoothly so thank you.
    - April 2023
    Celtic Trails were excellent: helpful, efficient and flexible. They were particularly helpful when one of our party couldn't come because of an injury and were flexible in making changes at the last minute. This walk has invigorated and uplifted me. I loved the walk - every day was different.
    - April 2023
    We had an amazing time and would love to do another holiday! Everything went very smoothly with our transfers, we were very grateful to have one less thing to worry about. Amazing service from Celtic Trails. They prepare you for every step, with excellent accommodations, and clear guidebooks and maps. This was an excellent way to escape from the busy schedule that dominates everyday life. We found the serene landscape of the Welsh fields to be especially peaceful.
    - April 2023
    Celtic Trails have great connections with the B&Bs, which are first class. Offa's Dyke has been on my bucket list for many years. I managed to raise £550 for 'Save the Earth' charity.
    - April 2023
    The staff at Celtic Trails are extremely knowledgeable and patient whilst I was trying to work out the best options. Walking in the fresh air and free of any responsibilities, other than making sure you make it to your destination, was beneficial. It cleared the mind and slowed the pace therefore enjoying the environment to it's fullest. Our luggage was at our destination when we arrived, which was comforting

    - September 2022
    We loved hiking this trail. It was at times a physical challenge but every day was glorious. The Camino and Coast to Coast pale in comparison. It was by far the best 3 weeks ever. Changing scenery, colourful characters, history, good beer, making life-long friendships. Thank you. We would recommend Celtic Trails to our friends: Absolutely!
    - September 2022
    Offa's Dyke countryside is stunning. Recommend to anyone. Celtic Trails were helpful and efficient. Would recommend.

    Celtic Trails were: very professional, very efficient. I will certainly use them again on my next walking holiday.
    - September 2022
    The holiday ran very smoothly; an excellent walk pack with a well planned itinerary, and seamless luggage transfers. I walked Offa's Dyke Path ten years ago on my own, and it's the best lig distance route in England and Wales in my opinion. It was great to do this walk again with my wife Sue this time. We most enjoyed seeing the 'half way' post on Craig Hill. Walking Hatterral Ridge was special for me, as I missed it out last time and had to walk to Hay on Wye by road because of bad weather.
    - September 2022
    This was a fabulous and challenging experience. We would love to book the remainder of the walk with you.
    - September 2022
    Our experience with Celtic Trails was excellent. Efficient and trustworthy. Sarah was extremely helpful. This walk has inspired us to consider other walking holidays, such as Hadrian's Wall or the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. We would use Celtic Trails again.

    Celtic Trails were very professional, helpful and well organised. Accommodation standard was very good. Offa's Dyke was the first long distance walk we've undertaken. It was something one of us wanted to do since childhood and it exceeded expectations.
    - August 2022
    Celtic Trails provided a great all round service. I walked in memory of my late father, and raised money for Alzheimer's Research UK. It was a very cathartic experience and almost £4,000 has been donated to the charity.
    - August 2022
    Accommodation and transfers excellent. I have completed many hikes abroad. Covid restrictions on travel meant I looked more to hikes in the UK. I am very pleased to have chosen Wales, a place I have not explored, even though it is so close to me in Eng

I have always longed to go back and finish it, and with Celtic Trails, this has given me the opportunity to do it in some comfort and enjoyment with one of my daughters and her partner!

    - June 2022
    A Welsh based company, with good local knowledge of the Offa's Dyke Route, accommodation and places to eat.

    - May 2022
    So far (we have another walk in August) the organisational experience from Celtic Trails has been good and enjoyable - and far preferable to organising it for ourselves. All very enjoyable, particularly the places we stayed and those who run them.

    - October 2021
    Celtic Trails are the only way to do a long distance walk. This was my 4 walk with them - usual high standard of organisation. This was our first holiday since lockdowns etc. Great to be away and fantastic walk, really pleased to complete the challenge. I had heard good things about Offa's Dyke, I was not disappointed - an excellent walk.
    - September 2021
    Mostly excellent overall.
    - September 2021

    - September 2021
    It was great to have the holiday organisation done for us. The standard of accommodation was excellent and the luggage transfers and transfers to accommodation all went without a hitch. We have always wanted to walk Offa's Dyke and when researching the option, using a company seemed the easiest way and wroth the extra cost. We chose Celtic Trails because of their Covid cancellation terms.
    - September 2021
    We have been recommending Celtic Trails to all en route: they take the hassle out of organising the holiday, especially on Offa's Dyke, where accommodations are not always easily found. The booking of taxis and organisation is all beautifully sorted.
    - September 2021
    Celtic Trails will look after you.
    - September 2021
    We walked independently before - I was glad this time to be able to hand over responsibility for organisation to someone else! Celtic Trails were efficient, worry-free and responsive.
    - August 2021
    Just a great experience. Friendly service from Celtic Trails staff. Good information contained in Walk Pack concerning food for walk. This was my fourth walk and by far the best in terms of the variation, i.e. woodland, moorland and history in the area.
    - August 2021
    While in Knighton, we got engaged on the trail. And Debbie said yes!!! Best holiday experience ever. Had a few queries on the second night, after one phone call to the wonderful Sarah, all sorted and minds put at rest. Celtic Trails takes all the hassle out of organising a long distance walk. Great info, great places to stay. Luxury walking. It has been a long ambition to achieve this walk.
    - August 2021
    If you like the idea of a supported walk, then Celtic Trails should be on your list. Very efficient. No real areas for improvement. This particularl walk provided a real variety of landscapes and scenery and we also enjoyed the historical aspects of the Dyke

    - July 2021
    Very well organised and reliable information. A total break from daily life. Although regular walkers, we had never done a long distance path or been to this area. We enjoyed the varied scenery and meeting people en route who were doing similar or longer walks.

    Efficiently organised holiday with good accommodation. WE thoroughly enjoyed Offa's Dyke, particularly the exhilarating ridge walk above Llantony, with its fine views.
    - July 2021
    Celtic Trails were friendly and professional - worked like clockwork. Thoroughly recommend Celtic Trails. Will certainly look at your holidays again. Hatterall Ridge was great on the Clwydian Hills, but what makes this walk so good is the variation day by day.
    - July 2021
    Celtic Trails were professional and well-organised, quick to respond to emails. This holiday has been a welcome breath of fresh air after the last year of lockdown.

    - June 2021
    Celtic Trails were very good from start to finish. Good communication, very clear walk pack. Much more relaxed after this holiday. I've carried Mark Richards' guide to this walk around the world for 27 years. After all this time, this walk didn't disappoint.
    - June 2021
    Clear directions to B&Bs / guesthouses were very helpful. The information provided was clearly set out for each day. Thoroughly enjoyed the southern section of Offa's Dyke Path - it contained such a mixture of scenery - high ridges, woodland, riverside walking and agricultiral fields. Roac sections were brief.
    - June 2021
    A hassle free experience, good quality accommodation on all nights, information and guides up to date. Excellent. This walk had a very positive effect on our wellbeing, coming out of lockdown. We have always wanted to do this walk - spectacular scenery and great hospitality made it a memorable walk.
    - May 2021
    I would describe Celtic Trails as excellent! Friendly, efficient, had a really personal touch. After Covid, this walk has been a huge lift. Having Celtic Trails manage the lockdown easing issues took the booking worries away. Offa's Dyke is a truly beautiful walk and a fitness challenge. We most enjoyed the peace, really - every day we were lifted by birdsong. Many walks have road noise present, but this is noticeably absent for most of Offa's Dyke.

    Celtic Trails are reliable, efficient and flexible. This walk improved my overall fitness and stamina. I relaxed mentally. I'm booked on the West Highland Way with Celtic Trails next, Celtic Trails was perfect.
    - May 2021
    Celtic Trails helped me decide the best way to tackle the walks so that I got the most from the experience. They organised everything smoothly. This walk has been very beneficial for my well-being. I will definitely be doing more long distance walks.
    - May 2021
    Good website. Good info pack. Some excellent hotels. No problems at all with transfers. It was great when the bags were delivered to our rooms.
    - October 2020
    We were really pleased to have used you - everything was very good indeed. Thank you! No issues whatsoever. Excellent service. Good quality accommodation. Knowledgeable about walk. Very good when issue arose (North Wales lockdown) and demonstrated what a good company they are. Will be using you for both finishing off Offa's Dyke (North Wales) and Cleveland Way! Would be a 5/5, except we had horrendous weather over the weekend of 3-4 Oct - nothing to do with you!
    - October 2020
    Celtic Trails provided excellent customer service when I was ill for a few hours … they provided a well organised holiday, plus excellent service while on holiday to deal with emergencies and requests. Even though, due to age, I can't do long distances anymore, I found that a "long distance" walking holiday is still feasible by using taxis to cut distances. CT provided a helpful list of local taxis and informed me of the need to book in advance in these rural areas. I enjoyed visiting different places and appreciating the countryside and food.
    - October 2020
    Thank you for putting it all together at such short notice, after the Covid restrictions were lifted. Really appreciated you fitting us in. Enjoyed historical connection and varied scenery.
    - September 2020
    Very efficient, top quality accommodation. The holiday, including our preparation through lockdown, has significantly enhanced our fitness and sense of well-being. Being outdoors in such wonderful countryside, lifted our spirits. We loved every day - the physical challenge, the fantastic views, the wonderful accommodation and very good meals all made this a wonderful holiday.
    - September 2020
    Extremely efficient. Everything went as stated throughout the walk. This walk gave me a greater appreciation of British countryside and this location in particular is stunning.
    - September 2020
    Given the problems caused by Covid-19, we felt Celtic Trails did extremely well to deliver this holiday. Thank you. Celtic Trails was very good and we enjoyed our walks immensely. The countryside was beautiful and a Celtic Trails holiday is an excellent way to see it. Thanks to Ben for sorting out the parking problem caused by Bank Holiday Weekend. Administration done efficiently. I found e-mails and phone calls were dealt with promptly and well. This walk was very good for the mind, body and spirit.
    - September 2020
    We really enjoyed the beautiful scenery and sense of achievement. This holiday had an excellent impact on our health and well-being.

    Better than other companies we've used - we've walked with them several times now.
    - September 2020
    All good.
    - August 2020
    Celtic Trails were efficient and helpful. This walk had a very positive impact on my wellbeing and health. There were very few people walking the trail, so it was uncrowded. Beautiful scenery.
    - August 2020
    Please ring me to book for next year.
    - August 2020
    All went very well. Celtic Trails are all you need for a great walking holiday. We enjoyed the variety of the terrain, crossing the English-Welsh border so often and it was historically very interesting. The walking was quite challenging but we managed quite well.
    - November 2019
    Celtic Trails were: Reliable / easy / helpful. I most enjoyed the solitude / friendship of the other walkers / scenery. The impact on my mental health has been good. Thank you, Sarah, for booking this - I really enjoyed the challenge of the walk.
    - October 2019
    Fabulous uplifting scenery
    - October 2019
    Great customer service, excellent booking experience and good quality information - personalised. Apart from a few aching muscles, a very positive experience. Challenging walk, some lovely scenery.
    - October 2019
    An excellent experience. Every last details considered. I particularly enjoy walking alone.
    - October 2019
    It was a good experience - the ridge walks were most enjoyable.
    - October 2019
    Celtic Trails were very well organised, lots of information provided, accommodation good, personalised handbook excellent. This was has given us confidence in our capabilities - the challenge was personally motivating and the exercise great! I had always wanted to experience Offa's Dyke Path - it was fascinating to walk with the actual Dyke on Day 6. We found the scenery stimulating, more towards the Black Mountain territory and it was an adventure and challenge to constantly map read and follow signs. The exercise was great (for general well-being too!)
    - October 2019
    Celtic Trails were professional - I would recommend them to a friend.
    - October 2019
    Everything was arranged for us, so we didn't have to think / worry. After the walk we were exhausted, but refreshed and inspired.
    - September 2019
    All went beautifully and the hosts were more that accommodating. Celtic Trails were timely and efficient. Despite the blisters, it was relaxing and a great sense of achievement. Good for inter personal connections.
    - September 2019
    Scenery was great.
    - September 2019
    Celtic Trails make arranging a walking holiday in distant parts of the country, child's play. They are totally reliable and responsive to individual needs and requests. The walk was difficult for me as I was recovering from an illness - I was shattered when I got back! However, you can't be anything but inspired and uplifted by the change to walk in such wonderful countryside. This is undoubtedly the most scenic of the long distance trails we have walked. It also had the advantage of not being overwalked or crowded.
    - September 2019
    Celtic Trails were much better than other companies we've used - we had no problems. An efficient company, with excellent choices made for accommodation. We are very fit now and we loved the sensational and varied walking,.

    - August 2019
    Celtic Trails are much better than other companies we've walked with: Excellent, friendly, responsive and helpful. The whole trip went very smoothly. I would certainly use them again and recommend to friends.
    - July 2019
    Celtic Trails were clear, efficient, friendly and engaged. Having hours and hours to talk, listen, be quiet and laugh a lot with old friends was very special. There is something about doing a long distance trail walk that is unique. You have time to adjust to a new pattern of life and walking for hours, day after day, forces you to literally slow down! I love the feeling of treading through unknown territory and arriving everywhere by foot. It is a very intimate experience.
    - July 2019
    Celtic Trails were better than other companies - we have and will recommend them to others. They were very good and always helpful.
    - July 2019
    The Celtic Trails staff were all extremely helpful when my husband had health issues and we couldn't walk for a few days. Our luggage was always waiting for us. Great accommodation, efficient transfers, wonderful support. Comprehensive track notes and information. This is a very beautiful walk, with amazing views along the way.
    - July 2019
    Seamless service and a good selection of accommodation. Nice to have beautiful, open countryside to ourselves.
    - July 2019
    Well organised ... friendly hosts at accommodation

    - July 2019
    We found Celtic Trails very professional to deal with and their attention to detail is excellent. Kate always replied to our e-mails promptly and was patient and understanding. The scenery and places we saw and experienced were amazing.
    - July 2019
    Celtic Trails provided efficient and good communication.
    - June 2019
    Excellent B&Bs and hosts; transport for cases good. Offa's Dyke Path was pretty, about the right length each day, with mainly good signage. Most enjoyed the walk along the ridge of the Black Mountains and the Clwydian Mountains.
    - June 2019
    Celtic Trails were better than other companies we've used - everything worked as promised. We particularly liked walking over the Aqueduct en-route to Llangollen.
    - June 2019

    Helpful staff; good website; flexible arrangements; luggage transfers seamless.
    - June 2019
    We received much more preparatory information and more personalised service from Celtic Trails than other companies.

    - May 2019
    I would recommend Celtic Trails to a friends - everything worked just as we wished.
    - May 2019
    Celtic Trails was better than other companies. As a solo walker, I felt CT kept and eye on me (just in case), which was reassuring. Great service with quick responses and helpful guides. Great places to stay at night. I think I should have done this walk in 2 sections. 177 miles was a bit much for me, but I loved the scenery and history along ODP.
    - May 2019
    This walk was quieter that coast to coast and West Highland Way. Scenery - huge variety. Challenging enough with some training. Flowers, bird life, forests, moors, farmland. Celtic Trails were excellent.
    - May 2019
    Very efficient company.
    - May 2019
    I would describe Celtic Trails as a great company.
    - May 2019
    Some hosts commented that Celtic Trails was the 5 star option and it did feel that way. They were organised and we were well looked after. This was a surprisingly varied long-distance walk - from Wye Valley/Forest of Dean, the Black mountains, Severn Valley then Clwydian Hills. Satisfyingly strenuous, without being arduous.
    - May 2019
    As we are regular walkers, this was an enjoyable holiday. We would recommend Celtic Trails to a friend.
    - May 2019
    I am recommending ODP and Celtic Trails to friends and family.
    - May 2019

    - May 2019
    Very friendly and helpful, from first contact to the end. Great choice of B&Bs and super organisation of tour, transport etc

    - May 2019
    Better than other companies I've walked with. This walk had a good impact on my health and well-being.
    - April 2019
    Good. High open spaces are always good for the soul. Also a bit fitter and probably lost weight.
    - April 2019
    Easy, reliable logistics meant I could just enjoy the walking.
    - March 2019
    Celtic Trails met our expectations. We enjoyed the variety of scenery, great B&Bs and grand weather. Exploring Ruthin was perfect for the rest day.
    - February 2019
    Word of mouth gives Celtic Trails a good reputation. What we most enjoyed about this walk was the solitude, good B&Bs, the daily distances, 360 panoramic views of Wales/England and the farmland and forests.
    - November 2018

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."

    - July 2013
    "[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."
    - July 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!"
    - July 2012
    "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."
