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.

What Others Said...

Cotswolds New Year Break January 2017 Hi all I would like to thank Alan and Keith for a lovely New Year at Stratton House Hotel. Despite the weather on New Year's Day, the walking was good, the hotel comfortable and welcoming, and the company fantastic! All in all, I couldn't have wished for a better New Year. Many thanks, and hope to see you again soon. Sorel
