The Golden Valley is an area of rolling hills and peaceful farmland. It gets its name from the River Dore which runs through it. Local people confused the Welsh for water, 'dwr' with the French for gold, 'd'or', hence the Golden Valley. Walks 4603 and 4604 start from Ewyas Harold, while Walks 4602 and 4605 start from the 'capital' of the Golden Valley, Peterchurch. Walk 4601 starts from Dorstone.

Dorstone is a small village five miles from Hay-on-Wye on the B4348 Hay to Ross road. In springtime the fields around Dorstone are full of thousands upon thousands of daffodils, which make it a beautiful area to walk through. This walk uses quiet lanes and a stretch of farmland to explore an area of beauty. Snodshill Castle is worth the climb for the view.
