Hope House Way

Ceredigion, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Herefordshire, Powys, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, Wrexham

555 km / 345 miles
The Hope House Way was originated and developed by Graham Leddington, Terry Blayney and David Goodson, all members of the Rotary Club of the Wrekin. The route has been devised to cover, as near as possible, all of the counties and areas served by Hope House Children’s Respite Hospice, a registered charity situated near Oswestry.

The route, both varied in terrain and rich in history, takes in Ironbridge, Ludlow, Hay on Wye, Builth Wells, Rhayader, Devil’s Bridge, Machynlleth, Dinas Mawddwy, Bala, Llangollen, Craignant, Montgomery, All Streetton and Cressage before returning to Wellington. The walk goes via Wenlock Edge and Ludlow then mid-Wales. From near Presteigne the route coincides with the Offa's Dyke Path National Trail through Kington to reach Hay-on-Wye. From here it follows the Wye Valley Walk up to Rhayader. Then along the Elan Valley and on to Devil's Bridge, and then Machynlleth. It returns by Cadair Idris, the Arans and the Berwyn Mountains, Welshpool and on to Montgomery using part of the Offa’s Dyke Path.
