Offer of Walks in Wales – by Jon King

Dear All,

Over the years walks on Retreat weekends have always proved popular combining the therapeutic power of nature and gentle exercise with the safety of other people with similar experiences. The exercise is not only good for walking off calories but is also a good excuse to stop for cake. Personally, I find walking helps to clear the mind and enhance one’s mood.

I am in the process of moving to Pembrokeshire but in the future would be happy to lead walks anywhere in Wales. Having lived in Wales for over 27 years, I have found healing from my bereavement in the beauty of the landscape and I would like to share this with others.

I have been leading walks for various walking clubs and organisations since the early 1980s. I am happy to lead gentle half day walks or full day walks (2 to 12 miles).  Walking weekend away are also possible.  I have a very large portfolio of walks that I know. Below is a short list of suggestions for walks but let’s hear your suggestions:

  • Gower walk – Langland Bay to Caswell Bay
  • Gower walk – Port Eynon to Rhossili
  • Gower walk – Bishopston valley
  • Pembrokeshire Coast Path in stages
  • Preseli Ridge – the source of Stonehenge’s blue stones.
  • Wales Coast path in stages
  • The Waterfalls Walk – Ystradfellte
  • Source of the Severn and Wye walk
  • Cadair Idris
  • Aberystwyth to Borth
  • Dolgellau walk – Torrents walk
  • Dolgellau walk – Precipice walk

Routes are pre-walked prior to leading a group and finding new routes is always interesting; so just suggest where you would like to walk. If you are interested in walking, enjoying views and exploring places of interest then please contact

Hope to see you on a walk
