Guided Walking Holidays - Walking Holidays For Singles and Groups

Llangollen and the Dee Valley

Renowned for the surrounding hills and the River Dee, Llangollen has something for all our clients. There is an astonishing range of cafés,  restaurants, and interesting independent shops to browse and interesting places to visit.  But it is its magnificent position ampngst the hill surrounding the town, and the delightful Dee Valley that we want you to experience.

Llangollen is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site along eleven miles of canal from Gledrid to the Horseshoe Falls via the spectacular Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. The town was also awarded Cittaslow status in 2013.

Llangollen is great place to visit. Llangollen has a reputation for welcoming people, whether for a day or two or longer.

Walking around the Dee Valley and the fringes of the Brewyn Mountains is superb. Offa's Dyke runs through this area, and the walk along it - it is called the Panorama , a spectacular and dominating outcrop of Carboniferous Limestone from Worlds End and Eglwyseg to Trevor is stunning. Great outcrops of limestone providing walkers and climbers with ample scope to escape civilisation for a while, as we walk under the magnificent limestone cliffs.

Then there is Llangollens castle - Castell Dinas Bran - perched on a rock outcrop, a ruin now but a lovely walk to the top and round it. Where else would you find a steam railway, horse drawn boats on a canl and Telfords magnificent A5 highway to Holyhead in such close proximity

If walking is your passion and you never tire of stunning views,- then this area is for you.

What Others Said...

AlanBelatedly getting round to sending this email to thank you and the team for a great weekend in Church Stretton last month. I had a fabulous time, both walking and socially. It was great that you had plenty of leaders so that the group could split up to cater for varying fitness levels (or perhaps the amount of alcohol consumed in the hotel bar the night before !) You, Barbara, Trevor and Ian were really friendly and knowledgable about the area.  I struck lucky with my accommodation at Mynd House, with the four poster bed, spa bath etc etc !!  A lovely place to stay, the new owners were really friendly, and the breakfast was excellent (delicious local bacon and sausages, yum).  Having local products in the mini bar was great too, varities of Woods ales at a sensible price, so I had to try them all ! I didn't get the chance to sample the lounge and bar at Mynd House, but they looked very welcoming.The weather that weekend was also beautiful, so I was really pleased with the photos I took, now uploaded to Facebook, and my profile picture is of me on Caer Caradoc ! I had intended to take the easy route back to Church Stretton, but I'm glad I made the effort, the views were great. I enjoyed the pub lunches too, good value and good beers. The tea shop after the walks was excellent too, wish I had sampled the cakes, but the tea was good and it was homely and friendly.I thought that the walking was taken at just the right pace, plenty of stops, and no rushing. Even the not very fit walkers seemed to cope - I would happily  recommend Secret Hills to people with little walking experience.  We had a good group socially too - Amanda and Margaret from Chesterfield were a laugh, and of course the Bexley "lads", and we had a good time in the Longmynd hotel until we took the hint that they wanted to close the bar !! But there were quite a few ladies who were happy to leave after dinner, rather than join in the drinking, and that was OK too.All in all, it was a great weekend, everything ran smoothly even though the group was dispersed around various B&Bs, and I will definitely have other holidays with Secret Hills. Maybe even Majorca in October (Eileen was very persuasive !!) Great value, too. Here's to the next time.Maria KellyRochester, Kent
