"South Downs - October 2020. Excellent walking. Lou was very engaging and skilful in her communication. Both Kelly and Alison were a joy to walk with. I have no complaints at all. The holiday was very well organised. Very simple reservation. Excellent communication throughout – especially in view of the COVID restrictions. The hotel was clean and quiet. The staff were very efficient. The food was food. Thank you for a fabulous walking experience."

"South Lakes – August 2020. I really enjoyed the Lakes short break in Aug and am very grateful that you were able to fit me in at such short notice. The alternative accommodation you found for me, was lovely, very clean, very obliging and I felt really CV secure. Paul and Jill the walk leaders were excellent, friendly, informative and flexible. I’m sure Paul’s ears are still ringing from the 8 middle-aged women cackling along behind him! Service at the Skelworth Bridge was excellent, and the food very good, staff were really friendly. The walks were well planned, stretching, and provided a great range of scenery. As always, enjoyed myself, thanks Alan and team, regards Jayne "

"South Downs - October 2020. A very special thanks to you and your team for looking after us all so well and a special thanks to Kelly for her support as I struggled towards the end of yesterday afternoon's walk. I have to say I came away wishing I had discovered walking holidays a long time ago. All good wishes to you and your team, Fran "

"South Downs - October 2020. Hello Lou. Just to let you know how much I enjoyed the long weekend in Eastbourne & on the S Downs. The organisation, the company, the weather and above all the guiding, were all excellent. I shall be walking the rest of the S Downs Way next year. Thanks also to Kelly, Alison & Neil. The photo gallery was brilliant. Regards, Tony Heath "

What Others Said...

Austria - July 2019. 'Would you reserve another holiday with Secret Hills Walking, and would you recommend our Holidays to others?' Yes, and yes. Alan Garner very kindly took a group of us to Salzburg for the day and walked us around the main tourist spots and highlights of the city. This was really appreciated by all of us and this is where Alan goes over and above to provide good value to the customer. Thank you so much, Alan is AWESOME!!!
