Guided Walking Holidays with HF Holidays

For walkers of all levels


For 2018 we are pleased to link up with our partners at hf holidays – the award-winning experts in Guided Walking and Self-guided walking holidays, with over 100 years of experience in delivering unforgettable memories all based on their 3* and 4* Country Houses set in stunning surroundings.


Guided Walking

Nobody knows the best places to walk like hf holidays and with their knowledgeable guides you’ll never be short of some inside story on local features, viewpoints – and quite possibly, if you press them – the best pub too. Most of the guided walking holidays feature a choice of up to 3 walks each day – just choose the option which suits your mood. You can even opt for an easier walk early on, working up to harder walks by the end of your stay.

So, from the easiest of rambles, to more intensive hillside challenges,

now is the time to lace up your boots and get outside and explore the great outdoors.


Please note that all walks travel at a leisurely pace, so that you can appreciate the countryside you are experiencing. No walks are compulsory and you can be as active as you wish.
