The Offa’s Dyke Path begins on the banks of the Severn Estuary.
You pick up Offa’s Dyke itself close to Sedbury Cliff and the trail roughly follows the course of the River Wye for the rest of the stage.
With nearly 18 miles (30 kilometers) of distance and some challenging climbs, this first stage will really test your mettle.
The first tough climb rewards you with Devil’s Pulpit and awe-inspiring views over Tintern Abbey, a gothic masterpiece founded in 1131.
The final climb of the day takes you over The Kymin, an 18th-century round house and temple set within nine acres of grounds. From here, you experience great views over Monmouth and the Wye Valley.
This stage finishes in Monmouth, which has a good range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
