The Best of England & Wales
This holiday takes you to three exciting locations which offer probably the very best walking in England and Wales. Enjoy four nights in the beautiful Cotswolds, with easy to moderate walking amongst rolling hills, along quiet rivers and through delightful mellow stone villages, as well as more strenuous options in ascents of the limestone escarpment.
With another five nights in the dramatic Snowdonia National Park with moderate to strenuous options amongst rugged mountains, through woodland and across Moorland, including Mount Snowdon, at 3,400 feet the highest mountain in England & Wales and five nights in the incomparable English Lake District, with a wide variety of scenery and terrain, beautiful mountains, rolling moors and of course many lovely lakes.
Transport will be by either a small, fully fitted coach, in the case of larger parties or comfortable mini-bus, for smaller groups.
This holiday is designed as a Grades B & C walking holiday. The different Grades are described below. With two Grassroutes Leaders, in which case we offer a choice of walks on each walking day, dependent on the abilities and preferences of the party. With smaller parties where we have only one Leader the walks will be a mix of grades designed to fit the abilities of the group. The distances and ascents may be modified, will generally be as follows :-
Up to 3,000 feet of ascent/descent, on distinct paths. Terrain may be steeply inclined and rough underfoot, with loose rock at times. Distances 10-15 miles.
Up to 1,500 feet of ascent/descent, on distinct paths. Terrain may be steeply inclined and rough underfoot for short sections, with some occasional loose rock. Distances usually up to about 8 miles.
