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

Holiday was so well organised; we didn’t have to organise anything and could just enjoy the walk! The B&B’s were all incredibly high standard.

No problems at any time, excellent choice of accommodation, very well organised.

This was my second long distance walk with Mickledore and both deserved 10/10. Both walks I have done on my own. I have no hesitation in recommending a solo walker to book with Mickledore. It is good to know that there is back up and knowledge of which stretch I am on each day. It was also good to be relieved of the hassle of booking accommodation.
