Small delights and tiny treasures await as you wander through the orchard, dip for minnows in Y Nant Perlan, make a den in the woods, hang your wish on the wishing tree, cast a spell in the witches' cavern, tell tales beneath the spreading chestnut tree, and follow the seasons through the snowdrop woods, banks of wild spring bluebells and ox-eye daisies in the drowsy summer hay meadow...............

The Willow Way hosts a range of workshops on Shakespeare's text, poetry, art, nature and much more. Alternatively you can view the trail by appointment.

The trail is supported by the open-air Living Willow Theatre which offers performance, festivals and workshops as well as providing a bar and BBQ on events days. Penlanole Organic Farm also offers camping in this stunningly beautiful part of the upper-Wye Valley. For further information visit: http://www.shakespearelink.co.uk/willow-globe/
