Shropshire Seventy Challenge – Adventure Walks
This challenge takes guests to the best hills in Shropshire including some hidden gems which are usually the preserve of locals. A genuine challenge but easier than some of HF Holidays’ super-testing big mountain challenges. Walkers cover nearly 2,500m (8,200 feet) of ascent over the weekend across the fabulous quartzite of the Stiperstones Ridge, the glorious ridge of The Long Mynd and the beautiful shapely hills around Caer Caradoc to the east. These mini-massifs are all within easy reach of each other so walkers can test themselves over the full 70 kilometres (43 miles)! Guests finish each day at a great country pub for a well-earned pint of Shropshire Ale!
Three-night trip from £384 per person including full board, en-suite accommodation with a full programme of walks, all transport to and from the walks and optional evening activities. Departs August 2020.
Pub Walks – Walks with a Theme
Walks rewarded with a pub lunch en-route and the chance to sample local ale at the end of the day. Choose from a winter weekend with warming fires, an Easter period short break as the days are getting longer or walking in the summer time. These are all cracking walks, but just as importantly, they stop off at historic, characterful or just plain excellent pubs, so guests can sample the local culture, cuisine and a pint or two as well. Walks are led by an experienced leader, bringing classic routes to life.
Three-night trips from £335 per person, four-night trips from £379p per person including full board en-suite accommodation, a full programme of walks with all transport to and from the walks, plus evening activities. Departures from Feb 2020 through to October 2020 at various HF Holidays country houses.
Railway Walks Exmoor - Walks with a Theme
Discover stunning countryside through a handpicked selection of superb walks and train journeys.

This is still a medium paced (with hills now and again!) walking holiday but what better way to enjoy the glorious seaside and moorland views than both on foot and from a lovingly restored train carriage?
