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.

Your knowledge of the route; your meticulous planning (accommodation, luggage transfer, taxis), great guides/maps and the personalised itinerary – we had a fabulous outdoor, healthy and happy holiday with varied terrain and views where we met so many interesting people along the way.
