Vale of Clwyd on Ruthin travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Valleys in Wales and England >  Vale of Clwyd
The Vale of Clwyd (Welsh: Dyffryn Clwyd) is the valley of the River Clwyd in the county of Denbighshire, North Wales. The River Clwyd rises in the Clocaenog Forest north west of Corwen and flows through a relatively narrow valley before entering the broad agricultural plain known as the Vale of Clwyd.

The vale is defined by the Hiraethog Moors, with their wild beauty,in the west, and the Clwyd Hills, an Area Of Natural Beauty, to the east. To the north is the Irish Sea and to the south the Berwyn Hills.

The River Clwyd meanders north through a pastoral landscape rich in both history and quality agricultural land, and passes tranquil villages, busy market towns, ancient churches and medieval Castles. Towns include Rhyl, Prestatyn, Rhuddlan and St Asaph in the north and the market towns of Denbigh, and Ruthin in the south. Denbigh Castle and Rhuddlan Castle are two of the finest castles in Wales, and with many other historic attractions Whether the Cathedral at St Asaph or the hidden gems of St Dyfnog's Church in Llanrhaeadr or St Marcella's in Denbigh there are no shortage of places to visit.

Walkers will be delighted with the trails both within the vale and along the rolling hills of the Clwydian Range, and cyclists and mountain bikers are well catered for with an abundance of dedicated cycle and mountain bike trails both on the Clwyd Hills and around the lakes of Llyn Brenig and Llyn Aled on the Hiraethog moorlands.
