When we founded Active England we dreamed of being able to offer the most inspirational experiences in England, exploring the magical corners on foot or by bike. We know travel should be awe-inspiring, exciting, conscious, restoring and memorable and we know how to create the best-in-class upscale adventure holidays. This is why we have created an ultra-luxury Active England branch with specialist, unique suppliers and hotels who promise to exceed expectations. We have a number of scheduled departures in 2023, from May to September, or go private and tailor the itineraries in line with your wants and needs.
Journey out from London for a honey-hued hideaway in The Cotswolds; retreat to the Cornish coast, or hike with us in Wordsworth’s Lake District. Each of our luxury tours are tailor-made, experiential and have been authentically designed to allow our travellers to truly immerse themselves in a place. Our itineraries are exclusive, and will allow you to ‘meet the locals’, trial the best culinary delights, all while treading carefully off the tourist trail.
We eliminate any stress that comes with organizing your holiday and make sure you have the best possible experience from start to finish. With our expertise we select the best places to stay, eat and drink. We are your very own personal travel assistant and the gatekeeper to all your holiday needs so you can enjoy peace of mind.
Travel with us to the English Caribbean (a.k.a. Cornwall) where magic exists, pirates reside and mermaids swim with us in the hidden coves. It’s an enchanting county that is recognised on the global stage as England’s jewel, with colourful fishing villages, golden sands, and epic coastlines. Next up is Devon, home to a wild, rugged windswept moorland which will be your home for the final night.
Our guides are ‘local’, they were born and bred in the south – and they will enable you to ‘live like a local’, show you the unusual, and give you the authentic Cornish and Devonshire experience. So journey with us in 2023 as we cosy up in gorgeous coastal and countryside hotels, enjoying backdrops of stunning coastal scenes with sparkling waters, and moorland vistas. Experience the local buzz of fishing harbours, travel back in time as we journey across Dartmoor and trial extraordinarily good local food and wine.
On an Active England holiday to The Cotswolds, you will walk or bike across rolling green countryside, through chocolate box villages and past beautiful meadows. Enjoy afternoon tea in a stately home, roam the hallways of historic Oxford Colleges, stop off in Bath to explore Roman Britain, lose yourself and find yourself in the Cotswolds hills, and meet local experts along the way to give you the inside scoop of this magnificent area of outstanding natural beauty.
From the majestic mountains and glacial ribbon lakes of Wordsworth’s Lake District to Emily Bronte’s, Yorkshire we will take you on a magnificent journey through two extraordinary national parks.
