Walking Holidays in the UK
Holidays Made in Britain!
The United Kingdom is the quintessential destination for rambling, hiking and walking holidays. We've been described as a small island or, more accurately, a small group of islands but in terms of the variety and magnificence of scenery the UK certainly punches well above its weight.
The UK boasts some of the World’s very best scenery, picturesque villages, pleasant strolls and exhilarating treks. The Ramblers Countrywide programme provides walking adventures from rugged hikes around the Orkney Islands to pleasant walks along the South Coast.
From the easiest of ambles, to sightseeing strolls taking in our natural heritage and history, good day hikes in moorland and hill country to some of the most challenging guided mountain walks anywhere in the world, you'll find it here.
The best of the English Lake District
A jewel in our Countrywide crown is Hassness Country House, our most popular UK property. Hassness Country House is ideally situated for walking holidays in the heart of the Lake District. We offer a range of graded walks, relaxing breaks from 3 to 7 nights and special interest holidays such as Nordic walking, Ale and Amble and geology. Recently refurbished the house offers a real homely feel with our own resident chef on hand to supply cooked breakfasts, packed lunches, evening meals and afternoon tea. Looking for something different? Hassness Country House can be hired for private group or independent holidays.
Something a little different...Looking for more pampering on holiday? Combine great walking on the South Downs with a little pampering on our new Spa and Walk break at Champneys’ Forest Mere Hotel.
