Cautionary Warning – If you are using an online booking service make sure the accommodation you are booking is actually on or near the route. This is particularly true if you are trying to book a place which has a name which can also used by another establishment in the locality such as Red Lion, Ty Gwyn.
The Accommodation page on our website has a comprehensive list of what we believe is currently available on or near the route.
Finding accommodation on or near the Route can be difficult on the early sections. Below are ideas on how to get around this.
This is easy to reach from the start at Basingwerk. It will take about 60 and 90 mins walking – longer if you explore the Valley and call at St Winifrede’s Well. Accommodation, including camping is available at the Monastery. There is also a café open Tuesday to Sunday.
There are four establishments listed in this village. But, some may require stays of two or more nights. The village though is close to Prestatyn where there is much more accommodation.

There is only one place listed. There is a bus service on Monday to Friday the last bus to Prestatyn currently leaves at 15 43 and to Holywell at 17 33 (This would mean staying in Holywell for a second night and rejoining the route the following morning.) Maxi’s Taxis 070 9330 2322
