Great accommodation and food

Stay in comfort in the best walking areas.

In the UK we operate 19 of our own Country Houses, all in wonderful scenery.

You’ll find them well equipped for outdoor holidays with a boot and drying room, comfortable bedrooms, and a sociable lounge and bar.

Enjoy delicious home-cooked food – breakfast, picnic lunch and evening meal – using local ingredients wherever possible.

Find out more about our Country House Escapes.

Country Houses

In Europe and Worldwide you’ll stay at our excellent partner hotels, chosen with care and often family run. They’re in beautiful locations, and offer great food and a welcoming atmosphere.

A great sociable experience

Relax in a sociable atmosphere whether you’re travelling alone, with family or friends.

The enjoyment of the day’s activities carries on into the evening. Chat over a drink in the bar before dinner with your fellow guests.

In the UK most of our holidays have optional evening activities that you are welcome to join – maybe a talk by a local expert, a trip to the theatre or a team quiz. Of course, if you prefer, you can just relax in the bar or lounge.

But don’t just take our word for it, see what our customers have to say.

Excellent walking and experienced leaders

Enjoy a choice of walks each day on our UK and European Guided Walking holidays – maybe challenge yourself one day and take it easier the next, guided by our carefully selected leaders.

Find the holiday that suits you using our simple walks grading system.

If you prefer to walk independently on a Country House Escape, we’ve maps and routes for you to use, with further tips, ideas and local knowledge freely available from our leaders.
