Footpath Holidays

Personally owned and run by Ian and Suzanne Newman, Footpath Holidays has been providing high quality walking holidays in Britain since 1983.Holiday options include guided walking as part of a group, self-guided holidays based in a single centre and self-guided holidays moving on each day and having your luggage transported.

Guided holidays give the guests the opportunity to join a group of like-minded people from Britain and abroad, stay in comfortable country hotels with excellent food and experience the finest walking in the local area with a knowledgeable and friendly British walk leader. This years guided holiday programme gives the choice of walking in North Cornwall, South Devon, the Cotswolds, Pembrokeshire, the Yorkshire Dales, the South Downs and the Lake District.

Self-guided walking holidays are available in two formats; enjoying the best walks in one of Britain’s outstandingly beautiful areas whilst based with one accommodation provider (choice of hotel with half board or a quality bed and breakfast establishment) or walking one of Britain’s excellent long distance paths whilst having your luggage transported along the route. Detailed route descriptions, maps and guidebooks (where appropriate) are provided.

Bespoke Holidays and Luxury Breaks
Every year Footpath Holidays organises a number of  ‘tailor-made’ itineraries for individuals, couples, groups of friends, extended family groups or walking and hiking clubs. These have ranged in length from a three day long-weekend to a two month ‘grand tour’.

Often these ‘bespoke’ tours are ‘themed’ and these themes have been as diverse as; locations associated with the literary works of Thomas Hardy or the ‘Lakeland Poets’, walks associated with pilgrimage routes, James Herriot’s Yorkshire, Daphne Du Maurier’s Cornwall, or the Arthurian Legends.

Sometimes the requirement is as simple as ‘I want a programme of great walks, luxury accommodation and ‘Michelin Star’ quality meals every evening’!
