Client Feedback

I was looking for a company that would take care of everything, so I wouldn’t have to think very much and just enjoy the holiday. And you did just that. I felt we were in good hands, with a professional team with quite a lot of experience. You even planned outstanding weather for us!! We hardly used our rain gear and you kept the midges away.

Q: How likely is it that you would recommend Mickledore to a friend? A: extremely likely because my wife and I absolutely loved the 5 days walking along the South West Coast Path, partly because of the scenery but also we always felt relaxed and confident that with Mickledore’s professional organisation we would not come to any problems (which we didn’t, thank you).
