Guided Walking Holidays - Walking Holidays For Singles and Groups

Southern Lake District

The Lake District is England's only true mountain area. It has the most beautiful scenery in the land, with its bewitching mix of rugged mountains, deep gylls, shimmering lakes,  bouncing waterfalls and attractive stone-built villages.

This unique landscape, is one of National Geographic’s top ten ‘must-see’ destinations in the world, has a superb network of footpaths and tracks which stretch through the valleys and along the lakes, and traverse  the sides, ridges and summits of the high fells, making it accessible to all.

 Now - with Secret Hills Walking Holidays - you can see all this beauty on our specially chosen guided walks, taken at a manageable pace, with our clients requirements always uppermost on our minds.

Secret Hills walking Holidays offer clients the opportunity to walk the Lakeland paths & fells and savour its beauty. We recognise that most people who opt for guided walking holidays, want to savour the fells, yet not be exhausted by slogging up several of them in a days walk. We have therefore selected walks that are IN the mountains, ascend the low fells, walk the stunning river valleys and take in the many tarns and lakes, in a cocktail of ever changing vista's. We walk around 10 miles a day and take time - actually lots of it - to savour the beautiful lakeland scenery - simply breathtaking.

We also on each holiday offer a lower level and shorter walk, to suit the ability of each walker, carefully tailoring the walking to each individuals ability.

We stay in hotels that are right in the heart of the lake district at either Skelwith Bridge near Ambleside, Windermere or Newby Bridge. mixing the bracing outdoors with good sleep and food.  

Travel by rail - good connections from all parts of UK to Windermere station with good bus conections form there.

We offer two alternatives - our guided walking holidays are set on specific dates throughout the year, see the dates on the UK holidays walking page, yet we can offer guided walking at other times of the year on an exclusive small party basis. Our leaders - based in the Lake District - offer a guiding service to two or more people who may be staying in the area- we call this Individual independent guiding. We charge £30 per walk- and we can offer advice and can book your accommodation – you pay the bill direct -. Transport – use your own cars or hire taxis- thie cost of this is additional to the above.

Let us tailor make your walking break – just email us and we will link you up to this service.

What Others Said...

To the Team at Secret Hills Walking, My wife, Jill, and I have just returned for a week's walking in Majorca with Secret Hills, lead by Jill, Tom, Ian and Tristan. We were a part of a group of 38 people from the South Dorset Ramblers. I feel that I must write to thank Secret Hills Walking, and particularly Jill, Tom, Ian and Tristan for a fantastic week of walking. The hotel was superb and all the walks were excellent. We opted for the harder walks each day, which did not disappoint, and Jill and Team did a wonderful job in guiding and supervising what were often quite big groups of people. Thanks also to Jill and the team for re-arranging a walk to a later day, after it had to be abandoned on its scheduled day because of rain. (Our only wet day!). The walk was well worth the wait. Thanks again. Hopefully we might be able to walk with you again in the future. Kind regards Phillip and Jill
