pub walk

A circular pub walk from Glasfryn in Mold, Flintshire. Glasfryn is a great Arts and Crafts pub which attracts plenty of locals and visitors and has stunning views from its sunny terrace. The walking route climbs high into the surrounding hills, passing through the beautiful Gwysaney Estate before descending into the nearby village of Soughton and on back to the pub. It's a really rewarding walk taking you through classic Welsh hillsides and valleys. There are several climbs and descents throughout and the route follows a mixture of stone tracks and grass field/woodland paths, the latter of which can get quite muddy so good waterproof boots are a must. There are a couple of sections of road walking so take care of any traffic. There are several kissing gates plus 7 stiles to negotiate and some of the stiles are enclosed with wire fencing so dogs may need a lift over. Some of the fields are likely to be holding sheep and horses so take care with dogs. Approximate time 2.5 hours.

Good 2.5 hour walk with a nice pub at the end. Like walking through all the fields (one has bulls in) but bits of walking through housing estates wasn’t as enjoyable but would definitely do it again.

Excellent walk with wonderful countryside and a great pub to finish up at.
