Walking

As well as the health benefits, the stress-busting properties and the peacefulness of a walk - there are also the views to consider. The UK is home to hundreds of wonderful walks; coastal, mountainous, countryside. There are forests to explore, pieces of history to discover, beaches to scale. 

Another great thing about walking is that you can tailor your approach - if you want a quick stroll, a peaceful peninsula, a moderate adventure, or a 300km trek around the edge of Wales - you can do that. There will be a walk that's perfect for you! 

Grab a map - or load Google Maps on your phone - break in your hiking boots, pack your bottles of water and your SPF, and prepare yourself for a truly invigorating experience. Don't forget that the best walks are usually complemented by a strategic pub visit... pubs on our website all offer fantastic food, beverages and accommodation. Here are a few pedestrian treasures... 


Cwm Idwal

Cwm Idwal is a Welsh National Nature Reserve in Snowdonia and has a circular walking route. It’s renowned for its breath-taking views of the lake it encompasses; Llyn Idwal. The walk, which is around three and a half miles long, offers walkers rocky terrain, mountain views and opportunities to spot rare wildlife, such as the Snowdon lily.

Yorkshire Three Peaks


The Yorkshire Three Peaks is an infinitely popular destination for walkers, due to the spectacular scenery that the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough offer. People can opt to ascend one, two or three peaks, depending on ability. The entire route, which is comprised of all three peaks, is about 24 miles and will take the average climber about 12 miles to complete.

The Lizard Peninsula

The Lizard, which is based in Cornwall and forms the most southernly point of mainland Britain, offers jaw-dropping views of the coast and plenty of opportunities for exploration (there are many coves and little villages along the stretch of land). There are rock formations dating back hundreds of millions of years, and many of the plants found in this area are the UK’s rarest.

Coniston Round


Also known as the Coniston Fells, this route is fronted by the aggressive face of the Coniston Old Man, and the towering cliffs of Dow Crag. These two peaks, as well as the hilly surroundings, mean that the Coniston Round has become a staple for all walkers visiting the Lake District. There is evidence of old industry – nature is now starting to overgrow around the old mining sites in this area, but they are still visible.

South Foreland Lighthouse

The South Foreland Lighthouse, which is managed by the National Trust, is a local landmark and was the first lighthouse to use electricity. There is a walk, around 4 miles long, which guides walkers around the white cliffs of Dover, and WW2 structures are dotted alongside the route. The formidable lighthouse, which is open to the public from April – October, is complemented by a 70 year old tearoom.
