Escorted Strolling and Exploring

Secret Hills Walking Strolling and Exploring holidays are designed for those who are still active and who want a holiday that combines a short country walk with some sightseeing and local culture. You will still want to explore, learn and enjoy the wonderful heritage and culture of the places we visit.  Strolling is mainly without much climbing or descending, not always completely flat, but no real strenuous sections - about 3.5/4 miles a day, in the mornings.  After lunch, we travel to view some historical place - or  beautiful gardens - dependent on the theme of the holiday.  We believe also that your Strolling holiday should be supported by excellent hotels and lovely food - nothing like a good deal of comfort after an exciting day's activity.

Why go Strolling and Exploring?

  • Culture and history
  • Strolling in magnificent scenery
  • Meet new friends and have a good social holiday
  • Personal attention at all times
  • Superb hotels/food - half board
  • No single supplement in the UK
  • Transport to walks / attractions included
  • Personalised guiding services

 In Europe, there will be a single supplement, and you pay for your lunches, but the overall price quoted DOES include flights and transfers.

We organize UK Strolling holidays in the Shropshire Hills (based in Church Stretton), the Derbyshire Dales (based in Hartington), historic Ironbridge (where excellent walking is combined with the history of the birth of our Industrial Revolution) , the Wye Valley and Cornwall with its lovely gardens.

In Europe, we organize Strolling holidays on the garden island of Madeira, alpine Slovenia and the magnificent historical island of Gozo. All are superb, with the Secret Hills philosophy of personal attention, small groups, lovely hotels and good food at its heart.

Let us take the strain - just relax, enjoy good company and being looked after well

What Others Said...

Very straightforward. I had a couple of chats with Alan beforehand, who was very helpful in providing useful information as well as handy hints and tips on travel etc. The Skelwith Bridge hotel was a great base for the holiday. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable and clean - not that you spend a lot of time in it, making the most of a full day's walking. Special mention about the evening meals - the quality of the food was excellent during the entire weekend Jill and Tom were excellent throughout the weekend - very friendly, welcoming and have great local knowledge to make the experience even more special. Each day we were given a clear explanation of the day's walking locations, as well as the option of a low/mid level or higher level walk. This enabled all levels in the group to be catered for. Jill was very good at checking that we were ok throughout the weekend, so I always felt well looked after. For me, Jill and Tom made the weekend special - thank you both
