Thank you we had a wonderful pilgrimage – fab walks, great weather, hills, moors, woods, animals and birds and finally singing seals as we crossed to Lindisfarne barefoot.

Only to say thank you so much. Miranda and I really enjoyed the walk and have caught the ‘bug’. It was helped by your excellent service throughout the 5 day St Cuthbert’s Way experience.

St Cuthbert’s Way, May 2017

I had an absolutely wonderful time and the service was impeccable.  Accommodations (especially the B&B’s), luggage transfer, informational materials, and of course the trail itself were fantastic.  I’d use Mickledore again in a heartbeat.  Thank you for an excellent holiday.

St Cuthbert’s Way, June 2016

Thank you so much for an excellent holiday. I hope that I shall still have the legs and the puff for another one next year.

St Cuthbert’s Way, May 2016

Accommodation at all stops could not have been better and all of the hosts were very kind and helpful. One of the best walks we have done and looking forward to planning next years trip already!

Excellent, Everything thought through to the finest detail- even the luggage labels!

St Cuthbert’s Way, July 2015

Its been a great walking holiday experience. Many thanks.

St Cuthbert’s Way, April 2015

We have nothing but good things to say about Mickledore. The accommodations were uniformly comfortable (even if I’ll never get used to duvets!) I think you wrote that you had given us one upgrade (at no charge), and we honestly couldn’t figure out which one it was. We especially enjoyed talking with Mavis and Gerald at Aidanfield Guest House in Fenwick and Carole and Jamie at Bamburgh View on Holy Island (who, by the way, had high praise for Mickledore). Since we left early a couple of mornings, I can’t compare all the hot breakfasts, but again, they were all very good. If I had to single one breakfast that stood out for its creativity as well as taste, it would be the one at Meadhon House in Jedburgh (Sorry, I can’t remember our hostess’ name.) All the packed lunches were also good.

Really valued the materials you sent, especially Turnbull’s detailed directions, which we often consulted, as well as the directions to each of the B&B’s.

We have enjoyed working with you, and should we ever decide on another holiday in the UK, we’ll be contacting you again,

I have no comments. It is really very perfect what you do. We have discussed (we were with 5 persons) about it but we could not find anything wrong (or a little bad) Congratulations- Mickledore is perfect. When we are going to do another walk next year we will surely contact you.

St Cuthbert’s Way, August 2014

I really enjoyed the walk – the scenery was very varied, the B&B’s were all good or excellent, some good places to eat and Taxi pick up on Holy Island was bang on time. I walked it over 4 days back packing – probably better to take 5/6 days as most people I met were doing. I was very happy with the holiday and look forward to my group walking the Cumbria Way with you at the end of September.
