Inntravel says

Our selection of self-guided walking holidays spans England as well as most of Europe. As leading specialists since 1987, Inntravel’s walking holidays are all about discovering the lesser-taken path and relishing a slow holiday at your own pace. We have put together a range of experiences for all abilities from gentle strolls and scenic rambles through to challenging hikes.

  • Characterful hotels
  • Luggage transfers
  • Delicious food

The most popular choice is hotel-to-hotel walking. We provide you with a detailed route guide and maps, there’s a comfortable and characterful small hotel or inn waiting for you each evening and we transport your luggage for you each day. Breakfast every morning and some other meals or picnics are also included in the price (it varies from trip to trip).

It’s a great way to really get under the skin of a particular region whilst working up an appetite for a delicious dinner.

In England, we have a choice of four- and six-night hotel-to-hotel walking holidays – and all are graded one or two which means they are easy to moderate with some inclines but no hiking required.

One of our most recent additions – a relaxed walking holiday along the North Norfolk Coast – is already proving popular. The seascapes are breathtaking, the skies teem with birdlife and there’s culture and history around every corner.

Explore the South Downs over six leisurely days walking through farmland, woodland and vineyards or head to Suffolk where the Waveney Valley awaits with its riverbanks, Norman castles, medieval castles and vibrant market towns.

You don’t have to love the literary works of Thomas Hardy to appreciate the beauty of The Hardy Way on the Dorset/Wiltshire borders. And as a Yorkshire-based company, we couldn’t leave out our beloved Hills and Dales of Yorkshire.
