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

Thank you so much for excellent organisation of my trip. I thoroughly enjoyed it all and appreciated very much knowing that there was back up (if needed), and that everything was so well planned and organised.

I’d certainly recommend Mickledore to anyone wanting to do a long distance walk and have it oranised and managed for them.

Both my husband and I enjoyed our hiking holiday very much! We truly had a fabulous time. We found the service provided by Mickledore to be excellent in every way. Everyone we talked to or emailed with was friendly, knowledgeable and quick to respond to our requests. We found the trip to be well planned out and everything flowed smoothly. Our luggage transport was great – no problems. The booklet with each day laid out was excellent – the directions to each B&B were accurate and easy to follow. All necessary information that we needed for the hike, meal planning and transportation were provided. Every guest house or B&B we stayed at was excellent – they were clean, well kept, close to the trail and included excellent breakfasts.The hosts were friendly and helpful. We will definitely use Mickledore again and recommend you to our friends.

We have had a fantastic few days. The accommodation has been varied and interesting. Having been on a Mickledore holiday before, I felt confident that everything would be well organised and run smoothly. This left us free to really enjoy our walking break.

Would you use Mickledore again? Yes, definitely.
