We often refer to our centred walking holidays as ‘discovery walks’, as they give you the chance to really get to know the area you are visiting. They usually feature one (though sometimes as many as three) splendidly located hotel which you use as a base for exploring, with several walking routes suggested in our detailed notes. The great advantage of this is the flexibility. If you wake up one morning feeling a little sluggish, you can choose the shortest of the routes provided. Similarly, if you don’t feel like walking at all, you needn’t – the location of our hand-picked hotels usually means that there is plenty to see and do in the area besides walking (we make suggestions in your information pack), or you could simply relax in the hotel lounge with a good book.
To ensure ultimate flexibility, we include a hire car or travel pass on virtually all holidays. The added benefit of this is that you can access the area’s best walks and a variety of scenery, rather than always walking out direct from the hotel door. If you wish to, you can venture a little further afield, perhaps to visit an attractive local town on market day, or to take in a viewpoint, quiet beach or museum that particularly appeals.
