Shortish walk from the town. The wye valley walk goes right past of it and is mainly shaded for most of the walk to the warren. Does get busy and not much shade when you are there so get there early-ish. Stony "beach" and when...More

Lovely footpath walk through the woods. Not too long and well cared for. Cute views. There’s a lovey pebble beach for picnics too.

Stopping off in Hay-on-Wye we took the chance to enjoy a wet but enjoyable riverside walk along the banks of the Wye River. Great way to burn off the calories!

Walked from the town along the river to the shingle beach. Pathways have been all levelled out so good for walking. In hotter months you can take a picnic and there are lots of seats to stop and take in the view.

A peaceful walk from the middle of Hay-on-Wye, past the church, along the old railway line. Enjoyed by fishermen with a permit as well as dog walkers.

We were extraordinarily lucky with the weather this Autumn but if you are rugged up this is a lovely place for a walk at any time of the year. There is a footpath (dog friendly) all along the river and it took us about 15...More

One of the best walks we have ever done. It is a riverside walk which leads to a little pebbly beach with a small weir where canoes were paddling downstream. Very picturesque. We walked here from Clyro and back again. Well worth it!

To be honest (without actually having tried to do this), I think it would be very difficult because you have to basically cross a field to get to the river. Someone else may be better placed to give you advice though if they... More
