Mickledore is a specialist tour operator providing self-guided walking holidays in the UK, with a reputation for excellent customer service and high quality holidays. We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic individual committed to the highest standards of customer service to join our small and busy team.

Working in our sales team you will deal with clients by phone, email, and in person, answering their queries, providing information on our range of itineraries and taking bookings.

Client Feedback

This is our second trip with you and we feel confident with your choices of accommodation, you make the planning easy. This was a great walk, we had good weather, not too hot and not wet. It is pretty hilly in places and definitely works the leg muscles. Can’t wait to do another stage!

How likely is it that you would recommend Mickledore to a friend? Extremely likely – plenty of experience with walking trips and what is possible for walkers to achieve. Good accommodation throughout. Helpful office staff. Loved every minute of it.
