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.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The room was comfortable, the views exceptional and the food was great. Thank you for a great holiday. I enjoyed every minute of it. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Alan and his team.
