Our guided walking tours in the North will immerse you in the glorious Lake District and the sublime majesty of Northumberland. Enjoy the freedom of the road less travelled, the culture and heritage of our National Trails. After climbing Helvellyn or Catbells, and ticking off a few Wainwrights, you’ll be glad to rest your legs in our wonderful pubs, hand-picked hotels and comfortable BnBs every evening, or relax by the calming waters of Buttermere or Windermere. In Northumberland you will visit incredible castles, namely Warkworth and Chillingham, explore an iconic coastline and dip in the River Tweed.

Step back in time on one of our idyllic walks through the magnificent Lake District or take on the challenge of the Coast to Coast walk across the country, along routes used since Roman times, winding through villages, over ancient passes in the hills, over moors, into woodlands, valleys, and with panoramic views around every corner. These linear journeys are the perfect way to discover England at its finest, travelling on your own or in your own group along these beautiful trails.
For more long distance trails have a look at our self guided and guided walks along the Cotswold Way or explore the highlights of the South West Coast Path in Cornwall.
We take all the hassle out of walking by including all luggage transfers, organising and booking all accommodation, providing maps, GPS instructions, and recommending incredible iconic palaces, castles, estates, ancient sites and more to visit along the way. Walk through the hills (fells), moors and alongside the lakes, rivers and streams, into our wonderful small villages and market towns which criss-cross the stunning landscapes.
Our walking holidays are designed to be completely relaxing. Travel to the Lake District by train to the start the walking tours, or leave your car in secure parking – we will arrange transport back to your car at the end of the tour. We also offer a range and accommodation options, both pre and post tour so you can guarantee to start your tour refreshed and go home invigorated. We begin our tours, in or close to the Lake District which is an hour and a half north of Manchester.
