As lots of threads often mention good walks, I thought why not add them here  ;D

Good idea.  There are some great walks along the river at Tintern (Wye Valley).  Tintern Railway Station (www.tintern.org.uk) is a good base, cheap parking (with shade, so car doesn't get too hot), picnic area, tea room ( :luv: the cakes & ice cream), kids play area and riverside walks in both directions.  Bit far for the daily walk, but it would make a lovely day trip.

Not sure if the Railway Station is open yet...think they usually open around Easter.  If not, you can park at the Abbey Mill craft centre/cafe which is just down the road and walk over the bridge and along the river from there...the cakes there arent' as good though!!!  (I've got my priorities right when organizing walks  ;D)

why not try the three casle walk in monmouthshire ................... http://www.stepwhere.com/maps/route/Three-Castles-Walk

Three Castles Walk: This circular walk of about 19 miles (30 kilometres) takes in panoramic views not easily enjoyed by road. The waymarked path links the three castles of Grosmont, Skenfrith and White Castle and passes through a varied landscape of hill, valley, wood and meadow. As well as three Norman castles, the walk offers peaceful countryside, quiet villages, wonderful views and ancient churches. It can be split into sections. (A cycle route has also been devised which takes in a fourth castle, at Abergavenny.)
