"Easter in Shropshire - April 2019. It’s nice feeling the close connection to the company management; I always feel that I’m a valued customer. This was my fourth break and I have seen Alan on all of them. See you again soon. "

"Easter in the Lakes - April 2019. It was a really brilliant enjoyable walking weekend and I am grateful to both walk leaders for making it a fabulous experience. Thank you! The Pre-Holiday information received was very clear. The hotel we stayed in was fabulous. Walks were all fabulous. The weather was really good, and the views were stunning. The leaders of the walks were very clear with their instructions and positive and easy to get on with. They were also very helpful and flexible in their approach. It was good to do the walks together as a group and with the option of splitting into two groups halfway through the walk on two of the days. The leaders joined us for the evening meal on the first evening which was good in terms of getting to know them. There was a variety of pub lunches and packed lunches. The group got on really well and this made it particularly enjoyable. I would do another holiday with secret hills and would recommend your holidays to others. "

"Northern Lakes - April 2019. It was my first time to go on a walking holiday. Thanks to Jill and Paul who is very attentive and paid a lot of attention to detail to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves while setting a pace to accommodate the beginners as well as the advanced. Gill made the walk fun and memorable while Paul knew when to say the right words to reassure us. The group I was with was very pleasant and easy to get on with. Gill stayed with us in the evening to brief us and constantly checked we were happy with the service provided. You have exceeded my expectation. Most definitely I will book another SH holiday and will also recommend to friends "

"Northern Lakes - April 2019. The guided walking holiday was excellent, beautiful scenery and really great walks. People had varying degrees of walking experience and levels of fitness that the two guides dealt with superbly. I felt that I got support and motivation to do more than I expected I could do, to enjoy myself and the beautiful area we were in fully. I had a lovely time with a great group of people. Jill our guide was welcoming and warm and really cared about whether we were enjoying ourselves as well as ensuring we had achieved something new in terms of walking challenges. Organisation of holiday? I couldn’t have asked for better. "

"Northern Lakes - April 2019. The questions that were asked at the booking stage reassured me that the walking ability and experience of everyone in the group would be accounted for. The hotel was very comfortable and the staff were excellent. The food was amazing. Both guides were knowledgeable and friendly and we were presented with various options throughout each day. The group was able to split on one day, with some of us opting for a higher walk whilst the rest remained on a lakeside path. I’ve already started thinking about what my next holiday will be. I’ve been talking about the company to other people and I would certainly recommend it to friends. I had a fabulous time on this holiday. The two guides, Jill and Paul, were fantastic and made sure that we were all getting the best out of the experience. "

"Northern Lakes - April 2019. The Pre-Holiday information gave me everything I needed to know. Superb organisation. The hotel was brilliant. Excellent food and service. The staff in the hotel were very attentive and genuinely keen to make sure that I was happy with everything. Jill and Paul were excellent guides. They provided good walks each day and gave the option of different grades of walks on two occasions, which I very much appreciated. They are passionate about the lake district and gave us lots of information along the way, which I like. It's about enjoying the scenery, learning something about the area and socialising with others in the group. I did however, surprise myself by completing walks which I would not have attempted on my own. The group of people on the walk were lovely. We had a great time, both walking and in the evening. Everyone got on really well together and I hope to meet them again on other walks. "
