UK Travel Reviews from Walkers' Britain travellers

"One of my best walking holidays". "Nothing short of magical". "Absolutely flawless". "Vacation perfection".

These are just some of the descriptions from travellers who had a walking or cycling holiday with Walkers' Britain this season. Read on for more UK holiday reviews.
 Colourful pastures on Offa's Dyke
Offa’s Dyke
“This was one of my best walking holidays. The walk is so varied – a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, wildflowers, remote moorland and ridges, river valleys, historic castles and isolated villages and small towns, with the iconic Offa's Dyke to be followed on some days. Wonderful and different walking on every day!
Accommodation was mostly excellent; comfortable, with a friendly welcome throughout and great breakfasts. Lots of good places to eat each evening. The organisation and support was superb. Their maps, detailed route notes and local information helped to make the whole trip both more interesting and stress-free. Thank you so much for an amazing holiday!”
P. Carne, UK | June 2022

The Cumbria Way: Crossing the Lake District
“The team did a superb job from initial planning to the actual walk. GPS maps were very important as the Cumbria Way is not always easy to follow.
Lodging and the baggage transport service were absolutely flawless. We never had a doubt that we would be comfortable and well fed at the end of each day's amazing walk. Highly recommended. Thank you!”
D. Gray, USA | July 2022
Beautiful manor garden in the Cotswolds
Cotswolds by Bike
“My wife and I had an absolutely fabulous time biking in the Cotswolds. The bikes were top notch, nicely outfitted with a roomy bag, a spare tube, pump, and lock. They looked brand new. The luggage service was outstanding. Our bags were always waiting for us when we arrived at the next inn. The inns and guesthouses that we stayed at were lovely.  And we so enjoyed eating at the local pubs after a day of riding and exploring. Fresh local food and beer! 
We are amateur riders at best but didn't find the routes that were suggested too taxing.  There were always things to explore on the routes.  We rode in the middle of June and had no rain for the entire six days. Just an absolutely fantastic time!”
J. Varriano, USA | June 2022

Coast to Coast: Classic Walk - 15 Days
“The communication and lodging were both excellent. Lodging owners all loved working with Trina, as did I. She found us lodging wherever the walk took us whereas many others on the trail had to take taxis at the end of the day. I’m convinced Trina works magic because of her relationships with owners. Highly recommended!”
P. Hamilton, UK | June 2022
Ascending from Ennerdale on the Coast to Coast Walk
The Cyclist’s Coast To Coast
“Having all the planning details for this trip worked out for was well worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed the route, the choice of places we stayed at, and having our bags seamlessly transported from one place to the next.”
Paul Johnson, Canada | June 2022
Cycling in Rookhope along the Coast to Coast in England Cyclist taking in the atmospheric Castlerigg Stone Circle Cycling the magical paths of Rowrah along the Coast to Coast in England
“My recent self-guided walk along the coast of Cornwall was nothing short of magical. The daily distances were relatively short but the scenery was breathtaking. The white sand beaches, the turquoise ocean, and the multitude of wildflowers made the walk an absolute joy.
Add in some ruins and history, yummy local eats (fish and chips, ice cream, cream tea), cozy bed and breakfasts, and reliable luggage transfer? Vacation perfection.”
V. Lemon, Canada | June 2022

The Dales Way
We loved the Dales Way. Wonderful riverside walks, views and villages to enjoy. Accommodation was a great mix of hotels, B&B and inns. The spacing of 14-16 miles worked perfectly as did the transportation of luggage. Would thoroughly recommend the Dales Way for a week of walking.
M. Eeckelaers, UK | June 2022
Walking Scotland's West Highland Way
West Highland Way - 10 Days
“My second time walking the West Highland Way with this company. I was with a group of 9 others and we had a lot of fun. A little bit of rain to contend with but that's Scotland. Definitely a good adventure!”
M. Rouse, Australia | June 2022
