Mickledore is based in Keswick, at the heart of the English Lake District, and has been delivering top notch UK walking holidays to walkers from all over the world for more than twenty years. The team are all keen walkers, with a mass of local and national knowledge, and a real passion for the great outdoors.
Ordnance Survey (OS) is the national mapping agency in the United Kingdom and is one of the world’s largest producers of maps. Their goal is to make outdoor activity more enjoyable, accessible and safe.
At A Walk in the Country we believe that the countryside is there to be explored and enjoyed. By bringing together the deep-seated knowledge and expertise of Mickledore and OS we have created a range of exceptional walking holidays that enable you to experience more of the great outdoors.
Maybe. But we think we are different. In a nutshell, we bring together the best routes, the best accommodation, and the best mapping, and we make sure that you experience the best walking holiday.
Accommodation is a critical element of your walking holiday, so we go out of our way to make sure you get to experience the best and that you can relax and unwind after a day’s walking.
We hand-pick your accommodation from a meticulously curated collection of hotels, farmhouses, country houses, and coaching inns that are situated close by to each route. We not only evaluate the accommodation ourselves, but we also ask every customer to complete a short evaluation on each night’s accommodation – interiors, comfort, meals, host, and service.
Our goal is to to make sure you get a great night’s sleep and wake refreshed and recharged ready for a new day and to explore and enjoy even more of the great outdoors.
One of our favourite routes
Discover the rolling downlands and charming villages of the South Downs as you walk from historic Winchester to the coastal town of Eastbourne, just beyond the dazzling white cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head. This ancient trail follows droveways and old paths along the chalk escarpment of the South Downs, which divides the beautiful Hampshire and Sussex Weald from the south coast of England.
One of our favourite routes
This route follows the world-famous Roman Wall for its entire length: Traverse this path from one coast to another, from Wallsend, near Newcastle, to the Solway Firth beyond Carlisle, indulging yourself in the history of the region, as well as some great scenery too.
As usual, very well put together. We all had a great time, and you worked wonders with the weather (well, mostly ...).
