Camping and Supplies on The Offa' s Dyke Path?

Q. Hey Mike, and anyone else :>

Can you tell me more about The Offer's Dyke Path, please?

I am also interested in the 6 days backpacking in Wales, mainly rivers and lakes, not really mountains (we are not prepared), would be great if you indicate where would be places to get supplies (food) from on the way, and wild camping preferred (money issue) but also possible camping sites on the way.

Thanks a lot.

A. In 6 days you could do the Southern half of the Offa's Dyke trail, which is nice. there are no mountains, but certainly are hills. I had no problem camping. Often I wild camp, but a lot of that trail goes through extensively farmed land, so I would find a farm and asked if they had a field I could camp in. Never refused, and had some very interesting chats and farm tours. I carried all my own dried food, but one goes through places where there are shops - Monmouth , Hay on Wye etc. Nice trail - do it and enjoy. Cotswold Way also recommended - you can do all of that in 6 days. ( I live almost on it ). Camping places along the way - see the guide book. Wild camping possible some places to the North of the trail. I've walked the Southern half of the Cambrian Way - that really does go up and down. Tony Drake planned it that way.
