Find a short break in the UK to suit you

Not only does Inntravel offer short breaks across Europe, but it also offers short walking breaks in the UK in some of England’s most splendid scenery (several of the walks are in national parks). You can choose from northern Suffolk, watching out for wildlife as you follow the lazy River Waveney past quaint villages; the beautiful Cotswolds, where neat cottages of mellow stone nestle amid rolling hills; Shropshire, where Saxon hill forts and Norman castles remind you that you are in the borderlands between England and Wales; the North York Moors and its romantic heather-clad moorland; the Yorkshire Dales with its characteristic dry-stone walls snaking across green slopes; the splendid coastline of Northumberland; and the hauntingly beautiful landscapes of the Peak District. All of them are proof of what great walking the UK has to offer.

Our walking holidays in Britain are meticulously researched, and you walk at your own pace guided by our detailed route notes while your luggage is transported ahead.

In Suffolk, Yorkshire, Northumberland, Shropshire and the Peak District we use small, welcoming guesthouses, cosy pubs and friendly B&Bs with just a few rooms each, and so we are unable to accommodate large groups. In the Cotswolds, we use two high-quality country hotels that are somewhat larger, with more facilities and a higher standard of comfort, though the welcome and sense of intimacy is in no way diminished.

To be sure of choosing the short break in England that is right for you, find out how our short walking breaks are graded.
