An "off the beaten track" trail in Wrexham has been named among the best pub walks in the UK by experts.

There's nothing better than heading out for a nice walk in the fresh air, enjoying the scenery the surrounding countryside or coast has to offer and finishing it all off with a cold pint and some food.

If this sounds like your kind of outing, the experts at David Wilson have compiled a list of the best easy, moderate and challenging pub walks from across the UK. 

Introducing the list the experts said: "From easy-going trails that take less than an hour to complete to 11km hikes that will have you out in fresh air, soaking up the vitamin D for most of the day, all of these routes offer the opportunity to see British wildlife thriving in its natural environment - and enjoy some light refreshment in a local pub."

The Wrexham trail named among the UK's best pub walks

Erbistock in Wrexham was named as one of three of the best moderately challenging pub walks in the UK by David Wilson Homes.


Distance: 8.7km

Time: 2.5 hours

Difficulty: Moderate

Describing the Wrexham walk, the experts said: "Set out from the Cross Foxes in Erbistock and head east over pastures and pretty woodland, before meandering back along the banks of the River Dee.

"Somewhat challenging, this route involves several climbs and descents, as well as a total of seven stiles.


"There will be dairy cattle grazing on some of the pastures at this time of year so keep any dogs on leads. 

"A little off the beaten track, this route can get very muddy after long periods of rain.

"However, this means you can often go the whole trail without encountering another soul before arriving back at the Cross Foxes where you can enjoy a refreshment while spotting wildlife along the banks of the River Dee."
