The Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail criss-crosses back and forth along the Anglo-Welsh border, stretching from North to South Wales, passing through no less than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The northern section of this classic British walk takes you through the stunning range of the Clwydian Hills and you will walk to the top of Moel Famau and enjoy stunning views over the whole range. In the 12th century these border areas became regions of war between the Norman Conquerors and Welsh nobles, who built a string of mighty castles along its length. Here find evidence of this where ancient hill forts and castles abound. Chirk Castle was built in the 13th century, although archeologists feel sure that it was built before this by King Offa. Also enjoy a few evenings in the pub with a local brew and your cosy accommodations after a fine day of walking.
