Warner Leisure Hotels has launched new walking breaks at Bodelwyddan Castle in North Wales.
These fully organised walks aim to discover the beauty, history and landscape of some of North Wales’ most scenic areas.
Accompanied by a qualified and knowledgeable walking guide, guests can expect great views and fresh air. Every walking break at Bodelwyddan features two walks and a packed lunch is provided along with transport to and from the start/finish point.
Walking experience isn’t required for these options as gradients are generally easy and both itineraries are under 6.5 miles in length, taking approximately three hours. The two itineraries on offer are:
- Country and Coast: Starting from the village of Dyserth, this walk takes in the bridle ways to Trelawnyd, the man made mound known as Gop Hill, the ancient village of Gwaenysgor, before finally returning along the Offa’s Dyke path via Graig Fawr.
- Village and Views: This 5.5 mile walk starts at the lovely village of Henllan before guests walk through rolling farmland and along village tracks. Along the way guests will have stunning views of Denbigh Castle, which crowns a steep hill above the medieval town.
The hotel’s moderate to strenuous guided walks require a reasonable level of fitness as both routes do include steep sections that are better suited to guests with experience. Both itinerary options are approximately 9 miles in length and will take around five hours to complete:
- Prestatyn to Rhuallt: This walk starts from the beach at Prestatyn and follows the Offa’s Dyke path to the hills above Prestatyn, weather permitting, guests will have splendid views of the bay stretching to the Great Orme near Llandudno. The route then proceeds inland across fields with fabulous views of the heather clad, Clwydian range of hills, before descending to the village of Rhuallt.
- Penycloddiau Circular/Moel Arthur: This area of outstanding natural beauty will see guests walk the level byway to ‘London Bridge’ following the drovers’ trail with wonderful views over the lovely Vale of Clwyd. The route proceeds along a bridleway to the Iron Age hill fort of Moel Arthur, before returning over Moel Arthur and picking up Offa’s Dyke path over Penycloddiau, which offers dramatic views of Dee Valley.
All of the above walking options are available on selected Bodelwyddan Castle breaks between April and October at a supplementary price of £50pp.
