Countryside and Coast

Explore the Clwydian Range & Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our finest and most precious landscape of undulating hills rising to 554m at the summit of Moel Famau, ideal for walkers and nature enthusiasts. Wepre Country Park is one of many Country Parks and offers a rich combination of features and acres of beautiful woodlands walks, a well managed fishing pool and a manned Visitor Centre to help you enjoy your visit.

Flintshire is also home to Offa’s Dyke which provides fantastic walking routes for all the family along the National Trail.  Flintshire’s coast stretches for 25 miles from Chester to Gronant and forms part of the Wales Coastal Path. Alternatively, why not explore Talacre where the River Dee meets the Irish Sea, creating unspoilt beaches and sand dunes – perfect for walks, horse riding or simply relaxing.


Explore the Flintshire Countryside

The best way to explore Flintshire’s beautiful rural landscapes is on foot. You are spoilt for choice in Flintshire with breath-taking walks for all ages and abilities from challenging climbs to gentle strolls. Get your walking boots on and head for the open moorland of the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where a hard hike is rewarded with stunning views; or explore the wooded valleys and rolling farmland of Llanasa, Ysceifiog, Whitford and Caergwrle; walk through wooded gorges and secluded grasslands at Loggerheads Country Park; or explore the historic landscapes around Moel Famau, the highest summit of the Clwydian Range, with its rolling moorland and outstanding views.
