HF Holidays is currently looking for more walking leaders around Cornwall to share their knowledge and passion for this fantastic area with our guests. The Chy Morvah, our base in the heart of St Ives welcomes around 50 guests each week, who never cease to be impressed by Cornwall’s spectacular scenery.
Our leaders are volunteers but stay for free in HF Holidays’ Country Houses as far flung as Glen Coe, Beddgelert and the Isle of Wight, and can progress to lead in over 60 destinations in Europe and Worldwide – a great way to spend some free time! Most holidays run from Saturday to Saturday and leaders are resident for the duration of the holiday, guiding walks on five days and helping to arrange a variety of activities in the evening. We provide accommodation, meals, travel expenses and ongoing training.
Liz Fairweather, one of our volunteer walking holiday leaders based in Cornwall, spends two or three weeks each year leading guided walks around South West Cornwall as well as other areas in the UK. “I love introducing guests to Cornwall’s unique history and culture, and to the wildlife special to Cornwall. It’s a great way to spend my free time and keeps me fit and active.”
If you, or someone you know is interested in becoming one of our walking leaders, we’d love to hear from you.
Our residential assessment is based at St Ives from 22-25 March. If you’re interested please visit our website and complete our online application form, or for more information, call Gillian Mininch our Leader Recruitment & Training Manager on 01768 890091.
