Getting There

A circular pub walk from the Corn Mill in Llangollen, Denbighshire. The Corn Mill, as the name suggests, is a converted mill which sits over the mill race and rapids on the banks of the River Dee. The interior is really beautiful with a great jumble of old beams everywhere, and the water wheel turning slowly behind the bar. The walking route climbs up to explore Pen-y-Coed, a woodland which occupies a prominent steep-sided ridge on the eastern side of Llangollen. The walk has long and steep climbs and descents throughout. The path surfaces, particularly on the eastern side of the woodland, are loose and shaley and can be slippery in both wet and dry conditions. There are a number of kissing gates on route, plus two stiles (both of which have large gaps alongside for dogs). You will cross one hillside field that may be holding horses. Approximate time 1.5 hours.

Llangollen is located just off the A5, about 10 miles south-west of Wrexham. The walk starts and finishes from the Corn Mill on Dee Lane. Approximate post code LL20 8PN. The pub does not have a car park, so you will need to park in the short-stay pay and display car park on Market Street (£2.50 for 3 hours, correct Summer 2018). Leave the car park via the vehicle entrance and take the road opposite signed for the riverside walk. Follow the road as it swings right and then take the first left into Dee Lane, where you'll find the Corn Mill.

First to Review

This walk is just as described. It is great for dogs because most of it is in woodland so no livestock. It is a shorter walk leaving plenty of time to explore Llangollen. The car park postcode is LL20 8RB. Charges have changed and range from 30p for 30 minutes to £7.00 for all day. 3 hours costs £2.50. A lovely day out. ADMIN RESPONSE: So glad you enjoyed the walk and thank you for letting us know the latest parking fees - we have updated the guide.
