Walkers are Welcome

You may have noticed these signs on B&Bs and other accommodation in Wales.

The Walkers are Welcome logo is an initiative by Visit Wales, the official tourist authority for Wales, to indicate which properties are particularly suitable as bases for walking holidays. Properties are assessed by VW grading officials, who ensure that the owners are welcoming to walkers, and have made provision for their needs, such as installing a drying room or area for wet and muddy boots and clothes. Walkers are welcome properties often also have maps and guide books available for guest to borrow.

If you would like to find out more about this grading scheme, or own accommodation yourself that you would like to be certified, you can go to The Welsh Government's website -
