Our experience in providing self-walking tours has enabled us to compile answers to a series of Frequently Asked Questions that we hope you will find useful in planning your holiday. Click on each question to view the answer.
Most of our tours will require you to be able to walk for a minimum of 4 to 5 hours per day (although we can vary this to meet your requirements), so it is important that you have a reasonable level of fitness. We have graded each of our suggested itineraries on the South West Coast Path by difficulty (from 1 to 5 boot prints), with 1 being the easiest and 5 the most difficult.
It is not necessarily the distance that influences the difficulty of the route, it may be the number and steepness of climbs and the nature of the terrain. If you are in any doubt, or need advice please call us on +44 (0) 330 350 1348 and we will be pleased to assist.
We don't include lunch as part of the standard package as there are often plenty of choices for lunch available during your walking day. The route guide in your holiday pack will have information in respect of places to stop for lunch. We can include packed lunches as part of your holiday package if requested.
We will book your accommodation in or close to a village that has an inn or restaurant where you can get an evening meal. In the event that your accommodation is in a more remote area, we will arrange for your accommodation to provide dinner (payable by you to your host) or will arrange transport to the nearest village (included in your holiday price).
Your holiday pack includes but is not limited to the following:
