Routes and Maps

Bring you own horse on holiday and discover real hidden gems of beautiful countryside that are often un-way marked and off the beaten track route finding in these parts can be interesting. If you enjoy the challenge of route finding, are happy with a map and compass, then ride self-guided with routes from our portfolio or plan your own routes to discover these parts for yourself.

We use OS explorer maps 1:25,000 scale and would not recommend riding in the area with anything less.

Explorer 201 Knighton & Presteigne. (If you wish to ride further afield and up onto the Offa’s Dyke)

Routes and Maps

If map reading isn’t your thing then why not think about riding with one of us. We know the country well and can share with you some of our great riding through our guided service (subject to availability) which enables you to enjoy the riding without the worry of finding your way! We also then have the flexibility of taking you on routes that we don’t give our self-guided guests as they are simply too difficult to find and rely on local knowledge.

Things to do


We offer Cycle Friendly Accommodation on the Welsh borders with great XC riding on the doorstep and within easy reach of several world class mountain bike centres with freeride, downhill and uplift facilities.


No crowds, no hassle, no pressure – that’s walking in Mid-Wales! The opportunities for walking from the Brandy house are endless. Take the long route into the village (about half an hour through ancient oak woods) or spend several days hiking


We host a variety of events at the Brandy House and there is lots going on in the area too.
