Wye Valley Walk

Mid Wales Holiday Lets is the ideal base for Wye Valley Walkers. Our 4 star, stylish self catering accommodation in Rhayader town, sits on the Rhayader to Plynlimon section of the walk.

The Wye Valley Walk is a 136 mile (218km) walk of startling contrasts from ravine gorge cloaked in woodland, through meadow and orchard, to rugged and remote uplands.

Follow the Wye through the battle scarred Anglo-Welsh borders to where it pours in rocky cascades from its mountain source.

Rhayader to Rhyd-y-benwch (Plynlimon)

Distance: 24¼ miles (38.8km). High Point: 477m (1,575ft) Nantyhendy Hill.

The most exposed and mountainous section of the walk, it starts in small fields and woods but rises quickly into rugged hills with mountains rising ahead. There are drops to the rocky banks of the river and short stretches along narrow lanes and railway embankments, but the inevitable climb begins after about 10 miles at the Dernol Valley, drops to Llangurig, then climbs again up the slopes of Plynlimon.
