"Ullswater Way – May 2019. Jill and Paul were excellent and very knowledgeable. It was lovely not having to think about anything other than enjoying the walking, food and company. The hotel was good. My room was nice and I appreciated having a bath. I loved the décor and the staff were very friendly. Like the last time I went I met an amazing group of people. It really is like having a holiday with a group of friends. Excellent organisation. Excellent pre-holiday information. I think these holidays are brilliant and look forward to my next one. "

"Beautiful Bracing Brecons - May 2019. The leader Tristan was very knowledgeable and catered for everybody's capability. The walks were varied and showed the different aspects of the Brecon National Park. The holiday was organised very well and made it very enjoyable. I will book another holiday and recommend it to others. Another very enjoyable holiday. "

"Cumbria Way - May 2019. I’m a returning client so often check the Secret Hills website. The pre-holiday information was good, and I read through all the links on the Cumbria Way page. It was good to be able to ring and speak to Alan ahead of the holiday. I had stayed at the Skelwith Bridge Hotel before and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful. Very much enjoyed the guided walking. It was a real holiday as all the arrangements were taken care of. Five days of walking and eating in glorious landscapes – what’s not to like?! Although this was a small group, it did not detract from the guided walking experience. It was lovely to have Jill as our guide. She led us along the route which she obviously knew well, encouraging us when needed and sharing information about different locations. The length of walk each day was perfect for me; enough to know you had been out on a walk, purposeful but not hurried with time to take in the surroundings and lots of photos. At no time did I feel rushed (even when we were asked to get a wiggle on!) or asked to do things beyond my capability. Good organisation. The taxi company used to transport us to and from the walk were very good. We were kept very well informed of arrangements by Jill. Yes I would reserve again and yes I would recommend to others, no question. I’ve been singing the praises of Secret Hills Walking to everyone and I’ve already been browsing the website … I’ll be back! A fabulous holiday. Thank you! "

"Isle of Purbeck May 2019. My friend has attended your holidays and suggested that I join her on this one. Pre-holiday information good, gave guidance on what should take as a novice which was helpful. Good accommodation and facilities, especially pool as I swim regularly. Informative and very approachable/knowledgeable leader. Good organisation, saw variety of places, lunch venues booked so no time wasted trying to find somewhere. I would consider booking another holiday and recommend it to friends/colleagues. "

"Isle of Purbeck - May 2019. Pre-holiday information was very comprehensive – told me everything I needed to know. Hotel was very good. It was useful to have the swimming pool/spa facilities available after a day’s walking. Very much enjoyed guided walking experience. Our guide (Lou) was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of interesting information during the walks. She was also very calm and organised. The other walkers were friendly and sociable. Organisation was excellent. Would you reserve another holiday with Secret Hills Walking. "
