"Cotswolds Beauty. The first time on a solo holiday, I really enjoyed every aspect and look forward to travelling with Secret Hills again."

- Carole McKenna - August 2019

"Yorkshire Treat - August 2019. This was the best holiday I have been on in years! I thoroughly enjoyed the guided walking experience. Keith was fantastic and had clearly put a lot of effort into ensuring I (and other walkers) got the very best from the holiday. The organisation was absolutely exceptional both from the team in Church Stretton and from Keith and Kirsty on the holiday. I found the reservation process clear, simple and straightforward. Pre-holiday information was very useful. The hotel was excellent, they were very responsive to our needs and were also very accommodating when we came traipsing in in our wet walking gear and walking boots! Huge thanks to Alan, Barbara and the team and to Keith and Kirsty – it was a really good experience! "

"Southern Lakes July 2019.My friend took care of reservation for me, she was very pleased with it, particularly the personal approach of Alan, who responded to all our queries and really made the whole process pleasurable. The hotel was perfect – it was very accommodating and were able to cater for a vegan immensely well. The guided walking was fantastic – Jill was a wonderful guide and it was a great pleasure to walk through the picturesque country side on well thought out routes with such excellent company, including Jill and the other walkers. You did a wonderful job… it was great fun. It was a wonderful holiday which I thoroughly enjoyed. Great walks, great company, just the expected amount of rain in the lakes! Thank you! "

"Yorkshire Treat - August 2019. I had a brilliant time. Keith and Kirsty did us and secret hills proud. Lots of hard work and preparation was much appreciated. Kirsty the life and soul, bringing everybody together, a gifted lady! In spite of the weather, in fact the weather made it fun, it was good walking. They looked after us all. The food amazing. Every place and every meal delicious. To cap it all Keith put together, a photo show put to music of the holiday. Brilliant! What a team. "

What Others Said...

The hotel was good - had all the necessary requirements for a short stay. I will be looking to reserve another at some time in the future, happy to recommend to others. It was my first experience of a walking break. Thank you
