Ride Across Wales (6 Days)

The X-Wales ride takes 6 days. The final day reaches the beach at Borth with a beautiful 3 mile ride along a fantastic wide beach to reach the nature reserve of Ynyslas, where transport will meet you and your horse to return to Brandy house. You can of course make arrangements for your own transport home. (It is possible to ride it over 5 days if you are prepared for a 23 mile day over some challenging wet terrain) Or as some intrepid explorers have done it’s quite possible to ride back to the Brandy House over 5 or 6 days. The Glyndwr’s way features in your route often throughout the week. People normally arrive at Brandy house on the Saturday or Sunday to start their ride on the Sunday or Monday and return on the Friday but this doesn’t have to be the case. We generally recommend arriving at the beach on a mid-week day as it can be busy at the weekend – especially on a nice sunny day in the School holidays!

Day 1
16 miles or 21 miles. The shorter option rides over rolling pastures, quiet lanes and forestry whereas the longer day will take you over higher open country

Day 2
14 miles over some lovely country and into the village of Llangurig with an overnight pub stop

Day 3
14 miles along lovely long grassy bridle paths to reach the Hafren forest which you ride through to spend your night in the midst of the forest.

(It is possible to miss staying at llangurig making this a 5 day ride making the 2nd day 23 miles and also riding over some very wet and technically difficult terrain ……… we would only advise this for very experienced trail riders.)

Day 4
A 15 mile ride over high country round the foothills of Plynlimon to stay the night at a traditional welsh hill farm

Day 5
A 17 mile ride along spectacular ridges with stunning views of the mountains of south Snowdonia. You get your first glimpse of the sea on this day and maybe an opportunity for a penultimate celebratory drink as you pass through Talybont. Spend the evening overlooking the coast with views across to Aberdovey

Day 6
A gentle 5 mile ride to Borth, and then 3 miles along the beach. Your time of departure depends on the tide times here as we can only get on the beach 2 to 3 hours before low tide. It is then a 2 hour journey with transport back to Brandy house.
