Escorted Strolling and Exploring

Secret Hills Walking Strolling and Exploring holidays are designed for those who are still active and who want a holiday that combines a short country walk with some sightseeing and local culture. You will still want to explore, learn and enjoy the wonderful heritage and culture of the places we visit.  Strolling is mainly without much climbing or descending, not always completely flat, but no real strenuous sections - about 3.5/4 miles a day, in the mornings.  After lunch, we travel to view some historical place - or  beautiful gardens - dependent on the theme of the holiday.  We believe also that your Strolling holiday should be supported by excellent hotels and lovely food - nothing like a good deal of comfort after an exciting day's activity.

Why go Strolling and Exploring?

  • Culture and history
  • Strolling in magnificent scenery
  • Meet new friends and have a good social holiday
  • Personal attention at all times
  • Superb hotels/food - half board
  • No single supplement in the UK
  • Transport to walks / attractions included
  • Personalised guiding services

 In Europe, there will be a single supplement, and you pay for your lunches, but the overall price quoted DOES include flights and transfers.

We organize UK Strolling holidays in the Shropshire Hills (based in Church Stretton), the Derbyshire Dales (based in Hartington), historic Ironbridge (where excellent walking is combined with the history of the birth of our Industrial Revolution) , the Wye Valley and Cornwall with its lovely gardens.

In Europe, we organize Strolling holidays on the garden island of Madeira, alpine Slovenia and the magnificent historical island of Gozo. All are superb, with the Secret Hills philosophy of personal attention, small groups, lovely hotels and good food at its heart.

Let us take the strain - just relax, enjoy good company and being looked after well

What Others Said...

Had a very nice holiday thanks. Eileen is a lovely lady and we really enjoyed her company. Shame there wasnt more than 8 though. On the other hand we struck lucky with the one off stay at the Daina (which was excellent). It was right in the middle of town and ideally situated for the evenings in the local bars. Did you realise there were 5 of us from last year's Slovenia holiday - Gary, David and Viv were there as well. An amazing coincidence The weather wasnt very hot in Majorca either but it was ideal for walking. Might possibly look for you in the Peak District in May. Best wishes from Ellie and Barry
