Dee Way Accommodation

Dee Way Accommodation and Other Services

RambleFest displays details of the Dee Way accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, guidebooks and maps, and public transport. We also include an Ordnance Survey map link for each location along the route for which we have service details.

Dee Way accommodation

The Dee Way is unusual in that it has two options of starting point: Hoylake and Prestatyn, on opposites sides of the River Dee. Indeed, the starting points are in different countries! The paths follow their side of the Dee and join at Chester. The combined path then continues to the source of the River Dee near Llanuwchllyn, Gwynedd, North Wales. Between Chester and the Source there are choices of route in several places. These choices of route make it a difficult task to set out in a simple manner the route and mileages (cue the violins), but we hope the table below makes sense. Choose your options of routes, get your notebook out and add up the miles.
The total length of the Dee Way is around 142 miles, although we feel most walkers will opt for one or the other starting points rather than both. The Dee Way Route Map.

Please refer to the Dee Way Accommodation and Other Services Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the services are revealed in a new page.

Dee Way Accommodation and Other Services Table

Because of the choice of routes at different points along the Dee Way, it has been necessary to split the route into separate Tables.
Please click on a location to open the page displaying Accommodation, Camping, Pub and Restaurant information for that location. An Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 map link has been included at each location; once the link is clicked, the map can be dragged and the scale adjusted. For each service an address and contact number is given, and wherever possible that service’s proximity to the Dee Way.

Notes on Dee Way Accommodation

Dee Way accommodation at Llangollen

We display a wide range of Dee Way accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and especially welcome Dee Way accommodation recommendations.

Dee Way Restaurants and Pubs

Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Dee Way, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. Please refer to the Dee Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below). Restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.

Dee Way Public Transport

There are few locations without public transport along the Dee Way. Please refer to the Dee Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below), and click on a location for details of the public transport and other services at that location. To assist those planning their walk, we have also provided an all-in-one Dee Way Public Transport page.

Dee Way Circular Walks

We welcome suggestions for circular walks along the Dee Way. Please give us as much info as possible, eg distance, refreshment stops, description etc and we will add a map and a link.

Dee Way Photographs and Logs

We would like to display as many photographs of the Dee Way as possible, and there is always room for your photographs and walk logs – just email them to us. Alternatively, if you have them online you can send us the link.
