Exploring the places we love, at a leisurely pace
Meandering through beautiful countryside, exploring hill top villages, lunching in a field of poppies or sunflowers, in a vineyard or along canal waterways….some of the settings you can intimately enjoyed when travelling on foot. Join one of our wonderful local hosts on a guided tour, or explore at your own pace on a self-guided tour. All you have to do is get up in the morning, pull on your boots, have breakfast and enjoy the walk – we look after the rest.
