"It was customary for the English to cut off the ears of every Welshman who
was found to the east of the dyke, and for the Welsh to hang
every Englishman whom they found to the west of it"
George Borrow,Wild Wales

Thankfully, this is no longer the case! Since opening their doors in January 2007, Joan and Christian have welcomed walkers and provided a comfortable place to stay in one of the most picturesque sections of the walk.

Glan-yr-Afon is perfectly situated, directly on the Offa's Dyke Footpath, at the base of the Candy Valley after a glorious, wooded descent from The Old Raceourse. The route to Glan-yr-Afon crosses high wild moorland, attractive, well cultivated wide river valleys and ancient woodland and passes through historic towns and isolated hamlets. You will see hill forts, castles, abbeys and flora and fauna, as rich and as varied as the scenery.

The market town of Oswestry is a great centre for discovering Shropshire and the Welsh Marches. Things to see and do include Oswestry Iron Age Hill fort, Erddig, Powys and Chirk Castles, Lake Vrynwy, Llangollen and its International Eisteddford, the Roman city of Chester and even sporting pursuits such as fishing on the River Dee.
The Offa's Dyke footpath passes the front entrance to Glan-yr-Afon. You are only two steps away  from a warm welcome and a comfortable bed.
