Walking holidays in England
England, our England. Home to On Foot Holidays, our approach to “home” walking is tentative, as we are determined to produce only the best our country can offer. But the portfolio is gradually growing, concentrating mainly on the south and southwest.
From our own cathedral city of Salisbury, walk through the rolling Dorset countryside to the Jurassic Coast to quaint Lyme Regis. There are big literary connections here too, particularly with that most English of authors, Thomas Hardy, he of “Far from the Madding Crowd”. Come and get lost in his green hills and oak woods. We also have a short break based in the medieval city of Salisbury, which explores the lovely chalk downs and river valleys of Wiltshire.
“Devon” explores the land between the sea and the moor and ends in historic Dartmouth, from where the pilgrim fathers started their Atlantic crossing. “Coastal Exmoor” has more literary connections, where you’ll find the home of the fictional heroine Lorna Doone and the land that Coleridge loved along the Somerset and North Devon coasts into northern Exmoor. And in the far southwest, walk round the tip of Cornwall on the South West Coast Path to Land’s End.
In the north, our Yorkshire walk wends its way westwards from the cathedral city of Ripon through the Dales, and concludes with an ascent of the mighty Ingleborough. And finally, our latest addition criss-crosses the England-Wales border, along Offa’s Dyke and through some pretty towns in the Marches.
