We are located in the tranquil small Welsh farming village of Gladestry surrounded by green fields about 1 mile from the border with England at the base of Hergest Ridge. An idyllic place to stop for a few days in well accomodated 3* graded rooms whilst you explore the Welsh Marches.
The Royal Oak is a picturesque Inn reputedly built in the 17th Century immediately adjacent to the Offa's Dyke National Path. From the large secluded beer garden you can lounge peacefully, listening to the abundant bird song. Buzzards and Red Kites are regular visitors soaring just below the summit of the adjacent hills. Ample car parking is available at the pub.
We are the only pub directly on the Offa's Dyke Path between Hay-on-Wye and Kington, about 10 miles (about 4 hours walking time) from Hay-on-Wye and 4 1/2 miles (about 2 hours walking time) from Kington.
The Royal Oak Inn provides a welcome sight to many a walker and Bar Snacks and Meals are served between 12pm and 2pm in the bar. We close at 3pm.
