"New Year, Cotswolds - January 2020. Another very enjoyable holiday. The leaders Keith, Catherine and Alan were very knowledgeable and catered for everybody's capability. The walks were varied and showed the different aspects of the Cotswolds.The holiday was organised very well and very enjoyable the hotel was very good, however the Gala Dinner on New Years Eve was a little disappointing. Yes, I will book another holiday and recommend it to others."

"New Year Lakes - January 2020. The guided walks were very enjoyable and well-chosen to take us to different areas. I particularly enjoyed the visit to Coniston and as I hadn’t been there before. And the weather was just perfect that day too. Jill is an extremely good leader, ensures that everyone feels welcome and part of the group. The addition of the new leader Wayne to some of our walks was very positive. He’s a very knowledgeable and engaging person, perfect for these type of group walks. Hotel was very comfortable, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The new years eve party at the hotel was a lot of fun, and a highlight of the trip. Well done to the whole team that brings these fantastic trips together. You’re all doing an amazing job!"

"New Year Lakes - January 2020. I've just spent a fantastic break over the 2019/2020 New Year period walking in the beautiful Lake District. Jill was our guide who was very ably assisted by Wayne, a newcomer to SH I believe but I feel sure he will be a real asset to the company. The two of them worked together so well as a team. Jill as usual was organised, efficient, friendly and welcoming as well as a LOT of fun which made our NYE celebrations all the more enjoyable! The Whitewater Hotel was exceptional. I could not fault my room in any way and the staff were accommodating, pleasant and friendly. Jill arranged some lovely walks for us and apart from the first afternoon we were blessed with dry weather. We had a walking group of about 12/13 which was ideal to keep a decent pace and made a nicely sized gathering around the table for dinner. NYE celebrations were most enjoyable with a delicious 5 course gala dinner followed by a disco and of course the obligatory dancing. Thanks to Jill, Wayne and everyone for your lovely company. Here's to the next one! Judith Mulcahy "

"New Year Lakes - January 2020. Very clear Pre-holiday information and informative as to what the holiday was offering and the nature of the holiday. Hotel was excellent! Elemis products!!!! Looked after us very well with friendly helpful staff available at all times. Guided walking - I was with Jill so I could not have been happier and meeting Wayne with his wealth of stories was great. In my estimation the holiday could not have been better organised. Jill is amazing at looking after everyone's needs and requirements. Thank you all for another amazing New year and Thank you Jill for everything you do. XX"
