General

Can I walk or cycle alone?

Many outdoor professionals would advise you against going out in the mountains or remote countryside – a problem could occur and you could experience difficulty being on your own. However, many people undertake these trips alone and thoroughly enjoy the experience.

If you do decide to do a route by yourself, please ensure you are properly equipped and sufficiently experienced.

Do you cater for children?

Many children aged 6 and above have enjoyed our walks, but they do need to be fit and have the right equipment and clothing. We are unable to offer any discounts as B&Bs will charge us the same, but we can try and book accommodation where a family room is available, which tends to be more cost effective. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate babies.

Can I bring my dog?

We can accommodate dogs on some, but not all, of our routes. Please take a look at our Walking With Your Dog page for more information. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate dogs on the Coast to Coast. It is always best to book as far ahead as possible with a dog as the accommodation is very limited.

Using public transport to and from your holiday

Summary information on Public transport to the beginning and end of each route is displayed on our holiday webpages. We are happy to offer advice and guidance on your transport arrangements – please get in touch.

Parking

We can usually arrange parking for your vehicle at the start or end of your holiday. Parking is at your own risk and will sometimes be “on street” parking. Usually there is a small charge made and this needs to be settled with the Proprietor on your arrival.

Weather

Any time between the beginning of May and the end of September tends to be a good time to walk in the UK. You are likely to encounter a mixture of weather at any time of the year, so it is always worth bringing waterproofs and suntan lotion!

Guided tours

Unfortunately we do not offer guided tours.

We are happy to work with bone fide travel agents and tour operators. Please contact us for further details.

Client Feedback

This was our second planned walk with Mickledore the first being the coast to coast. The Dales Way way was just as good. Everything ran as it should with no problems with accommodation or baggage transfer. The staff at Mickledore are polite friendly and knowledgeable, they give you great confidence that you are in safe hands. If you are planning a walking trip then don’t hesitate to use Mickledore they are professional and well on top of their game.
