Walking Holidays in the UK

We have a choice of  UK walking holidays with many variations to each one. These range from the gentle Vale of Lorton route which is 3-6 days in the quietest corner of the Lake District, through to the ever popular Hadrian’s Wall Walk or the classic Wainwright's Coast to Coast, 15-17 days across three National Parks. In addition to the full length trips, we offer a range of short breaks on each of these routes. We have 6 routes in Scotland including the West Highland Way from north of Glasgow to Fort William from where you can continue along the Great Glen Way to Inverness in the far north. To cross both Scotland and England in one route, St Cuthbert’s Way is the route of choice – starting in the Scottish Borders and finishing on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in England’s northern county of Northumberland.

Self Guided Walking Holidays

All of our holidays are self guided. We provide you with a detailed route description and/or guidebook, together with the maps for the area and you do the walking unaccompanied, at your own pace. All the accommodation will be booked ahead by us and we can transport your luggage to your next night's accommodation.

Inbuilt flexibility

Our holidays are designed to be flexible and can be tailored to suit your requirements. If you're looking for something different, or extra, from our holidays described here, give us a ring and we'll do our best to please! You can start on any day you like and we can arrange extra nights at any of the overnight stops allowing for rest days, or giving you more time to explore the locality. You can book part of a walk if you don't have the time to complete the entire distance, or if the weathers dreadful, or if you're feeling lazy! We can also give you a lift to the next overnight stop, if you’re walking within the Lorton Valley, North Lakes or Westmorland Way.
