Cosy pub walks

by Alf Alderson, 20th October 2017

We uncover three of the best walk/tipple combos on the Welsh Borders

One of the great joys of late autumn walking in the Welsh Borders countryside is the knowledge that, very often, a warm, cosy, traditional pub awaits at the end of your adventures. Not much beats the sight of lights twinkling from windows and smoke rising from the chimney as you descend from the cold hills after a good hike.

All of this month’s walks offer that reward, incorporating an old village with a traditional pub at its heart.

Route 1 - Great views and plenty of historical interest make this a fine walk in the Wye Valley, which starts and finishes at a cosy pub

Route 2 - An exhilarating and historically interesting hike along the northern tip of the Stiperstones Ridge, Shropshire

Route 3 - A fine round on the hills above Cilcain, Flintshire, taking in part of the Offa’s Dyke Trail
