Accommodation & Meals

Do I need to book any accommodation at the start of the trail the night before I start walking, or at the end after I’ve finished walking?

No, the holiday price includes accommodation the night before you start walking/cycling, and at the end of the holiday when you have finished.

What kind of accommodation do you use?

We use a variety of accommodation on our routes, including small country house hotels, guest houses in market towns, bed and breakfasts in farm houses, country cottages and Victorian town houses. In selecting our accommodation we always look for helpful, friendly hosts with good quality accommodation close to the trail. The vast majority of our accommodation is 4 star guest accommodation or above, and is usually en suite (private bathroom).

What meals are provided?

As standard we provide breakfast as part of your booking. This will be a choice of full cooked breakfast or continental.

We can also arrange packed lunches to be provided for each day’s walk by the accommodation. These are optional.

Where do I have my evening meals?

We will normally arrange your accommodation near to local pubs and restaurants, and we will give you details and recommendations in your itinerary. Where there isn’t a decent eating place nearby, we will either book you a meal at the accommodation, or we will arrange transport to a nearby pub or restaurant.

I’m a vegetarian, can you cater for this?

Yes. Vegetarian meals are always available and more restricted diets can usually be catered for. If you do have stricter dietary requirements, please discuss this with us at the time of booking.

Client Feedback

Your arrangements were perfect. Everything went according to plan without any issues. As you can glean from our scores, we were very satisfied with the accommodation and our hosts. The cost was very reasonable.

We had a good feeling with Mickledore (more than with a Dutch organisation).

This was the holiday I was looking for .. to be out in the countryside and along the seaside with little worries. It was absolutely beautiful and we would highly recommend the Northumberland Coast Path. What made the holiday even more special was we did not have to worry about a thing. Our accommodation was taken care of, luggage transferred for us, breakfast/lunch provided so there was nothing left to do but enjoy the walk. An amazing part of the UK with such natural beauty and friendly people. We are grateful to Mickledore for making our first walking holiday carefree and memorable. We also thank the accommodations for taking such good care of us and we look forward to another walk in the future through Mickledore!
