HF Walking Holidays

Gentle Guided Walking is an easier variation of HF’s classic Guided Walking Holidays. You’ll still enjoy the choice of three guided walks each day, one of which will be a gentle stroll of just 3 or 4 miles, with plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Their Field Advisors have done a great job of selecting fascinating, more straightforward routes that minimise the gradients and rough terrain. The resulting walks, still led by an experienced guide, should appeal to people looking for an introduction to walking, or to people who now prefer to take things a little more gently. 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 pubs too!


After your guided walk, you’ll still have all the benefits of an HF country house base, and in the evenings can relax over dinner with like-minded people before taking part in evening activities, quizzes, dancing and more


On all Tours, we will spend time outdoors regardless of the weather. Please bring sensible, waterproof clothing and walking boots, as it can be wet and muddy, and occasions involves crossing becks. Our Active Traveller Holiday itineraries often include walks over uneven ground which may prove challenging for those customers with reduced and limited mobility.






We walk along the ridge to the west of the House before turning east towards Wantley, just north of Storrington. The views from the ridge are just simply stunning! (4 Miles)


From Halfway Bridge we walk through fields and woodland to Petworth, soaking up this beautiful historic corner of Sussex. (4 Miles)


A short stroll to West Chiltington and then on to Thakeham with the option to visit the church and the White Lion before returning through open countryside (3.5 Miles)
(For more active/experienced walkers longer alternative walks are available)
