Equipment & Luggage

Do you carry/move our luggage between each overnight stop?

If you book the luggage transport option then we will move 1 piece of luggage per person, usually up to 20 Kilos in weight, transported between your B&B’s as part of this price. On some routes the weight limit may be less, but we will advise you if this is the case. If you leave your luggage at your accommodation in the morning, it will be waiting for you on arrival at the B&B that evening. Any extra bags can be transported (at an additional charge) as long as they are pre-booked.

We also offer a storage service for extra luggage not needing to be transported for this holiday. Please contact us for a quotation.

I’m afraid we do not offer a luggage service on its own.

What do I have to carry?

If you are having your luggage transported, then all you need to carry is a small day sack to hold your waterproofs, personal items, packed lunch, map, guidebook and camera.

Everything is well organised and thought through. All of the stress of booking different B&B’s and hotels is taken away. Information and resources provided are excellent. Many thanks.

Q: How likely is it that you would recommend Mickledore to a friend? Extremely likely, because this was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had! Brilliant.

At fairly short notice I had everything booked the way I’d have liked. Everything went to plan. Accommodation was of good standard and all owners and staff were very amicable.
