New Walking Holidays for 2020

We’re launching a great range of new walking holidays for 2020. Not only are we adding even more choice by delving into some brilliant new landscapes, we’ve worked hard to plot a whole new array of holidays to welcome the less physically able out into the UK countryside. If obstacles or prolonged gradients have put you off a walking holiday in the past, we think these hikes might be for you.

Check out our Stile-Free Walks page to learn more about the initiative, or scroll down for the full list of new holidays for 2020.

Camel Trail

A relaxed walking route following the River Camel from Wenfordbridge to Padstow.

3 to 4 nights
18 miles
Easy to Moderate

Cornwall along the River Camel

Follow this level, well-surfaced trail along the River Camel through Northern Cornwall. The Camel Trail has a calm ambience throughout, drawn from its waterside views, ancient woodland and long stretches through nature reserves. Waymarked throughout and dotted with facilities and resting spots, this trail is a great choice for new walkers of all fitness levels and abilities.

The Camel Trail is Stile-Free! No obstacles, no prolonged gradients.

Cornish Celtic Way

St Germans to St Michael’s Mount in the footsteps of Celtic saints.

4 to 13 nights
51-121 miles
Moderate to Demanding / Strenuous
Cornish Celtic Way new for 2020

Cornish Celtic Way

Travel in the footsteps of Celtic saints along Cornwall’s inland paths and coastal clifftops. The Cornish Celtic Way combines the pilgrimage routes with a long stretch along the Atlantic shoreline on the South West Coast Path, interweaving spiritual sites with Cornwall’s stunning coastal scenery. It’s an undulating route, challenging in places, but alive with warm Cornish welcome and a good dose of fascinating history.

Derwentwater Round

Take a circular walk around Derwentwater in Borrowdale.

3 nights
12 miles
Easy

Derwentwater Round

Meander through ancient woodland and along the banks of one of the best-known lakes in Cumbria on the Derwentwater Round. This gentle, circular walking holiday offers beautiful panoramas of the fells and endless opportunity to spot the thriving wildlife of the Lake District. Beginning and ending in Keswick, it travels 12 miles along flat, well-signposted paths.

The Derwentwater Round is Stile-Free! No obstacles, no prolonged gradients.

Downs Link

A low-level walk between Guildford and Shoreham-by-Sea.

4 to 8 nights
36-41 miles
Easy / Moderate to Moderate

Downs Link

Easy to navigate and mostly level throughout, the Downs Link connects the South Downs Way with the North Downs Way. Between Guildford and Shoreham-by-the-Sea, the route explores the woodlands of Surrey and West Sussex before travelling along coastal plains to Shoreham.

We took a good look at the official Downs Link route and realised it would only take one major amendment to make it much more accessible. So we’re offering two versions. The official route includes a hike up St Martha’s Hill, leading to some beautiful views over the countryside. Our Stile-Free alternative skips that entirely, following low-level, pretty riverside pathways on the walk out of Guildford.

Choose from the official Downs Link route and our Stile-Free alternative.

From Gibraltar Point, a thriving nature reserve, the Lincolnshire Coast Path follows promenades and sandy beaches to the seaside resort of Mablethorpe. If you're looking for tranquillity and peace of mind knowing facilities lie within easy reach throughout, this is the walking holiday for you.

The Lincolnshire Coast Path is Stile-Free, free of obstacles and prolonged gradients.
