"Shropshire Hills & Church Stretton Aug – September 2020. This was another super holiday, that was well organised, and provided very good pre- holiday information. The walks were very good, and provided a good variety of scenery, with some challenging climbs thrown in. A good taste of what the region has to offer the walker. The guides were excellent, informative, sympathetic to the needs of the group and individuals, and friendly. Thanks very much for another excellent team effort in providing another super holiday, on which I could relax and enjoy all that it had to offer."

"Ullswater Way - September 2020. Lovely varied walks with wonderful scenery. The leaders, Alvina and Gill, made for great companions, being friendly and informative, and organising everything with a minimum of fuss. The hotel was very good, friendly and helpful staff. Food was terrific, excellent quality and generous portions. Another enjoyable, successful Secret Hills trip!"

"Shropshire Hills & Church Stretton August 2020. Guided walking - Yes, very much enjoyed. I like the fact that the walks are always run by a local expert, as I’d never have known where to walk otherwise. Organisation very good – again given the unusual circumstances you’ve had to adapt very quickly, and I think you did a great job. I had a great time with a lovely group of people. Thank you."

"Shropshire Hills & Church Stretton - August 2020. Thank you for another great walking holiday break. Long may you be able to continue. Given Covid 19 situation the hotel staff did well to cater for our needs, a little OTT with Covid protocol but rather that than taking risks. No problem with rooms not being serviced, any requests for anything were met quickly. Very good walking experience - (as expected from previous holidays!) All went well, catering for the differing needs of individual members of the group. Leaders were very considerate and helpful. Thank you for making it a great walking break at a difficult time. "

"Shropshire Hills & Church Stretton August 2020. Hi Alan, Just back from the 4 days in Shropshire hills. Thank you for a lovely holiday. I really enjoyed the walking and the scenery was amazing. Will definitely visit this area again. I thought you managed the different walking abilities within the group very well. It meant everyone was able to take part to the level they were able to. The group were good fun and I think we made the best of the understandable restrictions placed on us. Best feedback is I have booked another holiday! Many thanks Becky"

What Others Said...

September 2013  Hi Alan, I wanted to say what a lovely experience I had staying in the Lake District over the weekend. Jill was a fantastic guide and host, I can't praise her enough. She was knowledgeable, attentive, and ensured our holiday was comfortable and stress free. Just a lovely person! We made the most of the sunshine from friday and throughout saturday before the rain set in, and even then we had an entertaining tour around the lakes! Saturday was a full day and the views were gorgeous. A well-deserved mid-morning tea break was enjoyed by all on top of a mountain where the scenery could be taken in and our achievement reflected on. The Swan Hotel was great. Lovely, cosy rooms, great food and warm welcoming staff. So, I'm afraid I have no constructive criticism! Keep doing the Lake District walks! Thanks very much for a memorable holiday. Toni
