The British Isles have been walked for over six millennia, in peace and at war. From the remote and wild Orkneys in the north to the beauty of the Cornish Peninsula, the self governing kingdom of the Isle of Man in the west to the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey off the coast of Normandy, we’ll take you deep into the heart of our countryside and show you the best of it. These are holidays made in Britain.
You can witness the geological magnificence of the Giant’s Causeway, walk back in time along the Jurassic Coast, take gentle strolls through historic villages, wander amongst rolling hills or hike the high and jagged mountains which are as challenging as you’ll find anywhere. And you can find them here.
There’s the chance to pick up a new skill on navigation training courses, get a real sense of achievement from walking a long distance trail or pilgrimage route, discover our natural history or a special interest birding or geology holiday.
On our Cruise & Walk programme, you can sail around the UK and reach corners of our islands difficult to reach by land.
If you’re new to walking or to small group guided holidays you could try a two or three night bite size UK break to put a tentative first foot forward. There’s also a women’s activity week, which apart from being great fun can introduce you to a range of outdoor activities without too much of a competitive edge.
A jewel of our holidays in the UK has to be Hassness Country House, our most popular UK property and highly rated on TripAdvisor. Hassness 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 and geology or for a specially relaxing holiday try our Mindfulness in the Mountains holiday. Hassness offers a real homely feel with our own resident chef on hand to supply cooked breakfasts, packed lunches, evening meals and afternoon tea.
