Meet The Team

We have a dedicated group of walk leaders and administration staff who work together as a team to ensure your holiday is the best we can give you. We are constantly seeking to improve our walking product and add new areas of walking interest to you. We also constantly review our hotel facilities and underpinning services that make the walking programmes work.

Take a look - but pictures alone cannot tell you about our individual skills and personalities - you only get that on each holiday.

Simon and Nina Foster

Simon and Nina are based in South Wales near the Brecon Beacons National Park where they walk regularly. They have years of experience in leading groups on guided walks all over the UK and Europe and joined the Secret Hills team in 2018


Alan Garner

Alan Garner founded Secret Hills Walking Holidays in 2002, and has built a superb team of walk leaders who run the walking breaks. A walker all his life, Alan started the company in the Shropshire Hills - "it's called Secret Hills Walking because I rarely found many walkers on the Shropshire Hills, it was very much an unknown area for walking, yet it is a superb natural landscape, with so much to offer"

" I am proud of what we have achieved and hopefully we can continue to develop new areas  of superb walking for you in the future."

Barbara started as one of our first walk leaders, in 2005, and has run many holidays in Shropshire, Derbyshire, Llangollen and the Dee Valley, the Black Mountains of South Wales and The Malverns. She now concentrates on our administration function, and has been instrumental in the design of this system and our web sites.
