"Lakes March 2017 Gill and Tom were magnificent and were constantly attentive to our comfort and safety in adverse weather conditions; whilst ensuring we were actually offered walks."

- Harriet Aitchinson - March 2017

"Lakes March 2017 This was my first Secret Hills holiday and I am almost certain I will book another. My concern before booking was that I would find the distance difficult,as it's been many years since I've walked over about 8 miles, but my mind was put at rest so I booked! From the moment I arrived I felt welcome and included. The whole group were very friendly. The service at the hotel and the food were excellent. The full day walk on the Saturday was probably the furthest I have walked for many years and although I was mostly the 'back marker' I was encouraged by Jill and Tom all the way and therefore didn't find it as difficult as I thought I might. It is a shame that the weather was so wet as another member of the group mentioned that there are usually a few more stops to admire the view etc. along the way. The rain also meant the walk had to be cut short on the Sunday but it didn't spoil my enjoyment in any way!! Thank-you everyone for a most enjoyable weekend."

" Lakes March 2017 We have just returned from our weekend walking in the lake district. Our first Secret Hills holiday...Won't be the last. The weather was awful but if anything it added to the experience. We would of never ventured out on our own. We felt safe and supported by Tom and Jill and saw some sights in the rain that we would of never seen any other time. I have to say that the rain soaked Sunday was our favourite. Thank you for a wonderful time. "

- Michael Carter - February 2017

"What a fantastic start to the New Year! The hotel was excellent with delicious meals & a great party atmosphere! The walks were varied & interesting led by our very friendly & able guides Jill & Tom. The group gelled very well together and was a good manageable size where fortunately a uniform pace could be maintained on the walks. The weather was amazing! Not a drop of rain & wall to wall blue skies. I would recommend the Lakes for New Year.....couldn't fault it in any way! Judith Mulcahy "
