"Easter in the Lakes - April 2019. Jill and Paul are excellent guides and complement each other very well. They were very conscious that we did not all have the same walking level and adapted each walk accordingly with the possibility of taking a short cut to avoid the more difficult hills. They were both easy to talk to and have an obvious love for their job and the local area. Skelwith Bridge Hotel was wonderful. I had a twin room and it was very spacious. The food was excellent as well with very large portions. As for reserving another holiday, I have already booked my next one. Just so glad I came across the Secret Hills website. I would certainly have missed out on some fantastic walking if I hadn’t. Bring on the next one!!! "

"Easter in the Lakes - April 2019. Very comfortable hotel. We were well looked after. I hugely enjoyed the guided walking. Much more than expected- weather fantastic, of course. I absolutely loved this holiday! I walked far further than I thought possible and enjoyed the beautiful scenery, the company and the thoughtful and professional guiding. It was an ideal introduction to holidaying alone. Thank you! "

"Easter in Shropshire - April 2019. I was pleased to have a telephone conversation with Alan before I booked. Very personal service! I really enjoyed the guided walking and the group of 12 walkers worked really well. Your organisation of the holiday was perfect. I will definitely go again, and I have already recommended your holidays to several friends. I am so pleased I found Secret Hills. It was great to be with a group of single travellers. The balance between walking all day and then relaxing over food and wine in the evenings in good company was excellent. Thank you! "

"Easter in the Lakes - April 2019. This was my first guided walking holiday. I was a bit apprehensive but from the moment I phoned the office I was re-assured. I loved it so much that would book all over again. The guides were so incredible – encouraging us to do what I didn’t think I could do whilst not scaring us! The walks picked were perfect, great views, and different each day. Amazing. It was so effortless, and everything ran as expected. I have already been googling your upcoming holidays and plan to do more. Would recommend to others. "
