Secret Hills Guided Walking Holidays

Celebrating eighteen years of helping walkers enjoy Britain's glorious countryside and superb European destinations

Secret Hills Walking Holidays was formed in 2002 and we are based in the Shropshire Hills. Our principal is Alan Garner, who has a wealth of knowledge on walking in many areas of the world.  He has built up a strong guiding team, picked initially for their love and knowledge of the area they live in and also for their ability to relate with all members of a walking party.

We aim to pass on our love of where we walk and to ensure you get the best holiday we can provide.  We value each individual and each group and we take pleasure in knowing that you have chosen us for your walking holiday.  Our reward is your satisfaction with our overall service. We call it 'the experience' - combining the walking with all the other things that make up a good holiday including accommodation, friendly service and attention to individual needs as well as a stress-free, social experience.

Our company has grown from small beginnings to a world-wide operation. Over the years, we have constantly researched new areas in the UK, Europe and further afield, thereby ensuring that we continue to offer new, exciting holiday options for our clients.

An Individual Experience

All our holidays are designed to have that essential flexibility built in, and concentrating on making sure everyone is individually catered for. You matter to us as individuals, though you may be walking with us in a group, there will be different needs for everyone. Our leaders are trained to provide the holiday just for you, embracing that personal touch that may be lacking in bigger businesses.

What Others Said...

New Year Lakes - January 2020. Originally heard about secret hills via a friend but I am now a repeat guest. Reservation Process smooth as ever; despite me accidentally booking on next year's trip instead of this one. Barbara called me to check and quickly fixed it! Pre- Holiday information Effective? Yes; everything I needed to know in plenty of time. Hotel - Excellent. From my point of view everything went smoothly with no complications. My room was huge with a pleasant view. Decor and bathroom were all in good condition and a combination of quiet, comfy bed and thick curtains meant that I slept very well indeed! I did enjoy the Guided Walking experience indeed. Jill and Wayne are excellent leaders and made sure that everyone was happy and got help if they needed it. Very well organised holiday; it's one of the reasons I keep returning as everything is taken care of so well. All I have to do is turn up and walk! Just keep doing what you're doing - it's a winning formula!
