Walking Holiday Testimonials from our Fantastic Guests

All our walking holidays are in personally and carefully chosen locations; they are selected for their friendliness, warm hospitality, excellent food and memorable walking. Our walking holidays in the French Alps and the Dolomites, and walking breaks in the Lake District and Peak District, are perfect for those who enjoy the company of others and being part of a small group of like minded people: Many arrive as strangers and leave as friends.

We offer good value for money walking holidays in great locations; our knowledge and service will always ensure your stay will be a truly memorable one. All our walking holidays and breaks are based in personally and carefully chosen traditional inns and hotels; we have selected them for their friendliness, warm hospitality and excellent locations.

But, don’t take our word for it, here are what some of our guests had to say…
