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 up to 18 Kilos in weight, transported between your B&B’s as part of this price. 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.

Client Feedback

Overall we loved the holiday and really appreciate everything Mickledore did to make the trip go as smoothly as it did. We will be taking more trips in the future and will certainly look first at Mickledore to assist us in making the arrangements again.

My friend and I had a fabulous week walking Hadrian’s Wall and cannot fault your service at all. The luggage was collected and delivered without issue, packed lunches issued with no problems, and communications piror to the week with yourselves were easy and any queries answered quickly and in full. The fact that we did not have to contact you and had no issues with the service you provided speaks volumes. The cost we felt was also extremely reasonable for what was supplied/booked.

We can only thank you for ensuring that our holiday was stress free, smoothly run and meant we could concentrate on the walking. My friend is already planning her next walking holiday and has mentioned using you again without hesitation.
