"Northern Lakes - July 2021. The hotel was excellent. Food (good choice for each course at dinner) and service were excellent. Enjoyed every minute of guided walking. All three guides were knowledgeable, encouraging and very easy to talk to. I was also very impressed with the care they took. I cannot think of anything that could have made it better. Thank you. "

"Shropshire Hills & Ironbridge - July 2021. Very much enjoyed the guided walking. Friendly and knowledgeable leaders and lovely walks, particularly on the Sunday from Church Stretton. Ing (walk leader) was also good as we arrived at Ironbridge about 1.5 hours before the taxi was due so he asked if we would like an additional walk on the flat and we went to a fab little tea room in a nice courtyard with shops about a mile or so away (as Ironbridge was busy and noisy that day). I thoroughly enjoyed my break. It’s evident how hard you work Alan, and the staff that support you, and that you care about ensuring your customers have a great time. Like you say it’s not just a walk but a holiday. Great job. Really well organised both in terms of the things we see but also all that must go on behind the scenes in ensuring these weekends run smoothly. "

What Others Said...

Lake District Easter 2016 Hello Alan, Overall the holiday was very good. The booking process was simple and straightforward, with all information which was needed being supplied. The walks were well tailored to the unfortunately poor weather, and Jill and Tom did an excellent job as usual. The hotel was fine, with the food being exceptionally good, full of interesting variety. And yes, I expect to be using Secret Hills in the future, and recommending them to friends!
