The countryside at your pace
Fancy discovering the UK's finest locations at your own pace? Then our wonderful Self-guided Walking holidays are for you.
All of our 18 country houses welcome self-guided walkers, so you can enjoy the same diverse array of scenery, culture, history and wildlife as the rest of our guests, but with the freedom to explore wherever and whenever you choose.
Each of our houses have a Discovery Point packed with a selection of local walks for you to explore. All you need to do is decide how far you feel like walking that day, pick your route card off the wall, lace up our boots and head off.
We also offer Self-guided walking holidays in Europe at selected destinations. Explore the stunning volcanic island of Lanzarote, uncover the historical landscape in Malta or ride a gondola to reach the high meadows and mountains of the Zillertal Alps. All our European self-guided holidays include accommodation at our highly rated partner hotels, detailed walking directions for five walks, a map, and local transport to access the walks at your convenience. These holidays are all about choice and flexibility. You choose which sights you want to visit and where you want to eat, leaving you free to discover a favourite local restaurant for your evening meal or sample local delicacies as part of your picnic lunch.
