With hf holidays – For independent travellers and walkers of all levels!


We are pleased to continue with themed walking holidays 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.


New for 2019 hf holidays are including a range of ‘Gentle Walking’ itineraries – an easier variation of Guided Walking, still with a daily choice of three walks, but with an ‘entry level’ that covers only 3 to 4 miles with some sightseeing in the local area.


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!


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.

Country House Overview – All are within National Parks or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Each offering a unique holiday experience; from legendary packed lunches to dedicated boot rooms, maps and books galore, lounges to lounge in, bars to relax and socialise in and quiet corners to read in.


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.
