The walking in this part of the border country between England and Wales is quite simply superb!

The countryside all around Little Trewern is totally un-spoilt, and the views from the Black Mountains and the Black Hill (Crib Garth) are wonderful. But above all, access to this beautiful area is excellent, with a well-signposted network of paths and bridleways along the English side of the border,  and open access to the National Park on the Welsh side of the border.

You can set out from Little Trewern, and choose between short wanders along the valley of the river Monnow, or head up onto the high ridges of the Black Mountains or the Black Hill, which seem to call invitingly from your bedroom window. Within an hour you are up onto the long ridges with spectacular views in all directions, including a tantalizing glimpse of the sea to the south west.

Here you can follow Offa’s Dyke Long Distance Path which marks the ancient border of Wales and England, gaze down into the Vale of Ewyas and the ancient Priory of Llanthony, and perhaps meet the wild ponies roaming free on the mountain tops.
