 Description of the route

 

The first day after leaving Berth Fedw Farm, the B&B where you leave your transport and stay the first night, the Loop takes you across the river Wye, where you pick up a byway, which becomes a bridleway, that you will follow before riding up onto the Begwns and open moorland owned by the National Trust. A slight detour takes you to the Roundabout, a spectacular beacon site with amazing views. The Radnor hills are the next landmark where you make your second B&B stop. The second day sees you ride along the southern ridge of the Radnor Hills, on old drovers roads, past the grave of Twm Tobacco, recross the river Wye where you can have your lunch break at Erwood Craft Centre, an old railway station serving lovely tea and cakes and then ride over more open hill, common and through forestry before making your third overnight stop at the horse B&B in Lower Chapel. On the third day you head south and then east, on a linked series of bridleways, ride through Brecon via quiet back lanes and past Brecon Castle, before taking bridleways and lanes to The Wern for your fourth B&B stop. You leave The Wern on your last day via the old tramway, you ride on the hills circumnavigating Llangorse Lake before crossing into the foothills of the Black Mountains. This is a lovely open hill area where you might well meet one of the herds of Welsh ponies, the native breed of Wales. Via some bridleways you make your way back to Berth Fedw Farm where you started your ride.
