Walking is a very popular activity, with many possibilities for stunning walks from the doorstep of Drovers Retreat or slightly further away. 

The Offa's Dyke Path and Visitors Centre at the nearby market town of Knighton.

Even around Drovers Retreat there are superb walks, including the picture above at Black Mixen in the Radnor Forest.

We have started compiling a guide to a range of local walks  - available at the property where a well used local OS map can be borrowed. Carolyn can advise routes with boots not car. To plan ahead you should equip yourself with OS 'Explorer' no 200 which includes Drovers Retreat and also covers the Elan Valley reservoir area. For Knighton, Presteigne and Kington choose OS 'Explorer' 201. (Why is it that wherever we choose to stay we are on the map edge or fold!)
