Need some help deciding where to go on your walking holiday? You’re in good hands. We offer a range of walking holidays across the length and breadth of the UK, with many variations to each one. Our routes range from the ever popular Hadrian’s Wall Walk to the classic Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, to the breath taking South Downs Way. In addition to these full-length walking holidays, we also offer a range of short breaks on each of these routes.
Every walking holiday is self-guided. Before you set off we’ll send you a detailed description of the route and/or a guidebook, together with the OS map/s for the area, so that you can explore the route unaccompanied and at your own pace. All of your accommodation is pre-booked by us and every day we transport your luggage to your next night’s accommodation. Meaning that you can focus on your walking and leave the rest to us.
Your overnight accommodation is critical to your walking holiday experience, and our focus is to hand-pick accommodation from a specially selected collection of hotels, farmhouses, country houses and coaching inns available that are close by to each route. We go out of our way to make sure that you get the best, and put a great deal of effort into hand picking our accommodation and where possible we match it to individual customer requirements. We visit the accommodation ourselves and we also ask every customer to complete a short evaluation on each night’s accommodation – interiors, comfort, meals and service. All of our accommodation has been carefully chosen so that you can unwind after a day’s walking and enjoy their unique architectural features, quirks and interiors whilst also experiencing a superb level of comfort and service.
All of our walking holidays are designed to be flexible and can be tailored to suit your requirements. If you’re looking for something different, or extra, from what you see on the site then simply give us a call and we’ll do our best to please. You can start your walking holiday on any day you like and we can arrange extra nights at any of the overnight stops allowing for rest days, or some extra time to explore the locality. You can always book a section of a walk if you don’t have the time to complete the entire distance.
The north of England has something for everyone. You can choose from a walking holiday awash with Roman history set against a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills, or visit castles and fishing villages as you follow dramatic coastlines. If it is mountains and moorland, valleys and lakes that you are looking for, then you can explore the stunning landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Lake District. Alternatively, you can embark on a journey across England by walking along the Hadrian's Wall Path or follow in the footsteps of Alfred Wainwright to complete the classic long distance route of the Coast to Coast.
Explore the stunning landscapes and spectacular views, whilst walking in the Lake District National Park. Your journey could take you alongside or over breathtaking mountains and into peaceful hidden valleys on paths that wind their way through pretty villages and market towns. The Lake District has some of the best walking on offer in the UK and is suitable both for those looking for a challenging walk or those who would like to enjoy a gentler walking holiday.
Scotland is a magical landscape with a noble history, culture, and people, offering a natural environment with a diversity of walks and routes throughout the region. With everything from gentle lowlands and coastal paths, to the more rugged mountains of the Highlands, a walking holiday in Scotland offers something for everyone.
Boasting several National Parks and many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty it should be no surprise that stunning scenery, soaring mountains, and refreshing coastal walks are never far away when on a walking holiday in Wales. This landscape offers an abundance of choice for a walking holiday, and it is no wonder that Wales is a magnet for walkers of all abilities.
Walking in Southern England is a delightful way to experience the rolling hills and expanses of farmland pasture that are typical of the English countryside. You can wind your way through historical landscapes, and ancient woodlands to discover old churches, abbeys and inns. You can escape to the coast and experience the heights of the spectacular white chalk clifftops with rewarding views across to the Isle of Wight, the English Channel and beyond. A walking holiday on the Cotswold Way or the South Downs Way is a relaxing way to enjoy the hidden treasures of Southern England.
One of our favourite routes
The Great Glen Way is the third longest walking route in Scotland. Follow the historic Caledonian Canal and traverse the forests above Loch Ness from Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis, to the vibrant city of Inverness, the capital of the highlands. The gentle gradient marks it as a relatively easy walk for beginners to enjoy while the scenery makes it attractive regardless of your ability and fitness levels.
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.
What is very clear is that you have been doing this for a while and your research has identified the best venues because what was abundantly obvious was the genuine warmth and friendliness of the welcome I received. I'd like to thank you for a wonderful walking experience with nothing to concern me other than walking from A to B (how you managed to guarantee fantastic weather almost every day I will never know) and I look forward to trying out another of your long distance walks in the not too distant future.
