Romantic Castles of Wales
This vacation is designed especially for the lover of ancient, romantic castles, whose stately ruins evoke echoes of their fascinating, often turbulent past. Strolling amongst these wonderful piles of stone, you can allow your mind to roam free, imagining the lives and loves, secrets and intrigues of its inhabitants ! Of course, to get to them means seeing much of Wales’s finest scenery and finest treasures.

Transport will be by either a small, fully fitted coach, in the case of larger parties or comfortable mini-bus, for smaller groups.
The programme is designed for Grades B & C, as described below. With smaller parties you will have one Grassroutes Leader, and the walks will be a mix of grades B & C, according to the make up of the group and its abilities. With larger parties we have one or two Grassroutes Leaders, in which case we offer a choice between a Grade B and C walk each day. The distances and ascents may be modified, according to the abilities and wishes of the party but will generally be as follows :-
Up to 3,000 feet of ascent/descent, on way-marked paths. Terrain may be steeply inclined and rough underfoot, with loose rock at times. Distances 10-15 miles.
Up to 1,500 feet of ascent/descent, on way marked paths, Terrain may be steeply inclined and rough underfoot, with some loose rock. Distances usually up to about 8 miles.
Note: There is no obligation for anyone to walk every day - you may take a day off whenever you wish.
