What our clients think

Westcountry Walking Holidays has lived up to our expectations again, with comfortable accommodation, superb arrangements and excellent service throughout.

John & Catherine, England, April 2015 SWCP: Plymouth to Torquay

Hello Kwan, Just wanted to say that the holiday was great, thank you. We loved the walking - only got lost a few times - and the accommodation was very good. The owners were particularly helpful and a couple even gave us lifts to help us on our way. We will be looking at your other holiday options for next year. Being able to walk on both our travelling days was a real bonus so we will be interested in anywhere with a shortish train journey from London.

Liz & party, England, May 2015 Coleridge Way

Perfect. Everything taken care of. Nice accommodations on route. We had a fantastic holiday.

Wim & Nellie, Netherlands, August 2014 Pembrokeshire Coast Path: Amroth to St Dogmael's

It all ran really smoothly. We were extremely pleased with every aspect, luggage transfers, B&B's, arrangements by B&B's for picking us up or dropping us off (where necessary).
