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

I had an absolutely amazing experience and look forward to future hikes through Mickledore. Your company did an amazing job of organizing and coordinating the trip. Overall you’ve done an amazing job vetting the B&B’s. All the hosts and hostesses were incredibly friendly, helpful and professional. Thank you so much for the service you provide. I spoke with another local couple who were doing your Hadrian’s Wall hike, and had done organized hikes using other companies, who said that Mickledore was by far the best service out there.

We think that Mickledore have done a very good job, both with planning the route and selecting the accommodation.  Bags were always moved reliably every day. Thanks a lot for giving us a terrific holiday.

‘Would you use Mickledore again?’: Yes, flawless service, excellent organisation – well worth the money.

We have no hesitation in recommending Mickledore.The B&Bs we arrived at the end of each day are such a treat! Charming, welcoming and comfortable! Nothing went wrong during our trip – however we were confident and reassured that it would be easy to contact Mickledore to sort anything out if needs be. Thank you! A great time in beautiful Cumbria and Yorkshire.
