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...

The hotel was in a great location, lovely rooms, easy walk into Cirencester and the food very good. Craig was a very organised leader on the shorter walks that I did, knew the area well and together with his lovely wife Carol they made a good team. New year meal and entertainment was just what was needed and of course your fun evening on news year's night. I would definitely recommend Secret Hills and hope to do another trip myself sometime this year.
