The Royal Oak Inn, Gladestry

GRID REF: so2326855090


Not to be confused with The Royal Oak in the town of Kington, England.

We are located in the tranquil small Welsh farming village of Gladestry surrounded by green fields about 1 mile from the border with England at the base of Hergest Ridge. An idyllic place to stop for a few days in well accomodated 3* graded rooms whilst you explore the Welsh Marches.

The Royal Oak is a picturesque Inn reputedly built in the 17th Century immediately adjacent to the Offa's Dyke National Path. From the large secluded beer garden you can lounge peacefully, listening to the abundant bird song. Buzzards and Red Kites are regular visitors soaring just below the summit of the adjacent hills. Ample car parking is available at the pub.


Latest News: We will not be open from Friday 3rd June to Monday 6th June
