Tailor Made Walking Holidays
We offer a tailor made walking holiday service in the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and the Lake District.
Whether you know little about the area and want to use our own knowledge to build the best holiday for you and your party or whether you simply do not have the time to sort it all out yourself we will do it for you. The walks are all Self Guided but do let us know if you would like a guide for a day and we may be able to help.
All you need to do is fill in the simple (no obligation) form at the foot of the page and we will produce a starter itinerary for you.
We have a high level of expertise in judging accurately what is right for that person and their party and mirroring it up to the landscape and walks. This is based on a lifetime of experience and knowledge of walking in the area as Group leaders. We will..
- Source and book the B & Bs, Country Houses or Country Inns
- Provide route information for the best walks in the area
- Be available for advice on the best options for you and your party
- Include a pack with maps of the area & how to make the most of the walks
- Provide a Baggage movement service if you wish to stay in more than 1 place (optional)
Below are 4 examples of walking breaks that holidaymakers of different experience took with us last year including one that is pre packaged with accommodation.
Example A. 3 days walking route to include Malham and Wharfedale
The holidaymakers were a young couple who wanted a taste of the Yorkshire Dales and had seen Malham on the TV and wished to go. Outside that they were not bothered but would like to stay in different places to get a feel of the area.
Barbara, Klara and the all important Fred!”
We booked them in to Grassington as their base for their night of arrival and their final night leaving 3 days between to walk. On Day 1 they left Grassington and took the limestone trail to Kettlewell where they stayed. On Day 2 they walked over to Malham via Arncliffe in Littondale and Malham Tarn staying in Malham overnight. On the final day they had time in the morning to explore Malham Cove and Gordale Scar before taking the path via Bordley back to Grassington.
Example B. A party of 6 enjoying a week in the heart of the Lake District
The party wanted the accommodation sorted and their large bags moved as they walked through the heart of the Lake District
Starting in Keswick we planned a circular route taking in the main valleys and some of the main fells in the Lake District. The route included Borrowdale, Langdale, Ullswater and Buttermere. We moved their bags between the accommodation which was mainly in pubs but sometimes B & B in the more remote places. As well as using our experience to plan the best route for their party to enjoy the best of the Lakes (including alternative high and low days – weather dependent!) , they appreciated the hassle being removed in finding accommodation and moving their bags.
Example C. A 4 day holiday in the Howgills
An experienced couple and their friends wanted somewhere a little different to enjoy a few days walking; they knew the Dales and found the Lakes a bit of a hassle. Wanted some good challenging walking.
We booked them in to an Inn in Sedbergh as their base and we suggested 4 walks of varying length. In the end they took 3 including Baugh Fell, a low level exploration of Mallerstang and their favourite, the high walk over the Howgill Fells. They felt that they had always avoided Sedbergh in the past for a reason they could not explain but really enjoyed the town and the area.
