Offa's Dyke walking the Southern half of the path. Traveling in a northerly direction.  80 miles/ 129km. 

 Walking the Southern half of the Offa's Dyke. 
Starting in the historic Town of Chepstow and finishing in the old market Town of Knighton
Itinerary for 7 and 8 nights below. 

The mileage shown below is from where the Offa's Dyke path starts and finishes each day and is for your guidance only. Due to the rural nature of the walk there are times when it is not possible to find accommodation in walking distance from the path.  You will not be asked to walk any further than one and a half miles from the path to your accommodation, unless otherwise stated.  On the occasions where a (T) has been placed on the itinerary, a transfer from the path will be provided as part of your holiday.  This will either be provided by taxi service or by your host.  You will then be returned to the path the following morning to continue your walk.  When an (L) has been used, there is limited accommodation.  You may need a transfer at this location.  Further transfers not listed, may be required due to some accommodations having a two night minimum booking policy or the accommodations close to the path being already fully booked.   This will be discussed with you at the time of booking your accommodation. 

The official start of the Offa's Dyke path is at Sedbury, approximately one and a half miles walk from Chepstow.  There is no suitable accommodation at this point, you will be staying in Chepstow.  It is suggested that you walk to Sedbury on your arrival day and then start from Chepstow on your first day of walking.   

Please note that the Offa's Dyke has large areas where there is no accommodation or the nearest town or village is a steep walk down from the trail.  You will find that the accommodation at Longtown is sited at the bottom of a steep decent.  There are no road networks in the area to transport you to or from the path.  You will need to walk back up the steep incline the following morning to re-join the Offa's Dyke path.  The additional mile and a half walk from the path is not included in the mileage for the day.
