Holidays with Two Grades of Walking

We now offer two walks each day at several of our centres. Here you'll have the choice of an easier or harder walk each day. Sometimes the walks on offer will be similar - one taken at a slower pace than the other. On other days the walks will be quite distinct. Maybe you would like to have a go at a harder grade one day, maybe you like to take some time out occasionally with an easier walk. We believe this flexibility will appeal to many of you and look forward to your feedback.
