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. Our most dog friendly routes are Hadrian’s Wall, the Herriot Way and the Cleveland Way Moorland Highlights. 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. We do have an extensive information sheet on dogs, so if you are interested please complete an enquiry form and we will send you more information on booking with a dog.

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.

Travel agents

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

Client Feedback

Mickledore consistently provides exceptional support and attention to detail to assure the very best information about their walking holidays. After reading through all of packet information provided, one is left with little or no questions because each walk is so well laid out and well detailed. This is my third walking holiday with Mickledore and each one has been exactly as advertised.

I am a repeat customer, having done Coast to Coast with you in 2013. I knew everything would well-planned and easy from prior experience, and you didn’t disappoint. The trip was very-well designed, the accommodations very nice, and the logistics were flawless. I was able to focus just on the enjoyment of walking and leave the logistics/planning to you. I also appreciate how clear and honest you are in your dealings.

Q: How likely is it that you would recommend Mickledore to a friend? A: extremely likely because my wife and I absolutely loved the 5 days walking along the South West Coast Path, partly because of the scenery but also we always felt relaxed and confident that with Mickledore’s professional organisation we would not come to any problems (which we didn’t, thank you).
