Combine your love of walking with 'A walk in the Country'

A Walk in the Country By A Walk in the Country

Do you love walking long distances but don’t have the time to do it? Would you like to tackle one of Britain’s amazing scenic long-distance routes? If this sounds like you, then have a read.

As you probably already know: walking can be an excellent free way to exercise, explore, and enjoy the natural world. A walk outside can strengthen bones and muscles, improve balance and coordination, and improve your mood and reduce stress. Not to mention, being outside for that long will boost your much-needed supply of vitamin D. Although, carrying heavy luggage from place to place or camping may sometimes feel like it outweighs the benefits. Walking holidays, which organise the transportation of your luggage and sort out your accommodation, allow you to challenge yourself with long walks in the day, and relax in luxury in the evening – the perfect combination.

Imagine walking along the South Coast, seeing breath-taking views across the English Channel, as well as spending the day in the sea air. Or the sense of achievement when you’ve walked the length of the Pembrokeshire coast. Although these walks take days to complete, you could have your own mini adventures and complete small sections of longer walks that you aspire to do. Or, you could go on a walking holiday and complete an adventure you didn’t think was possible.

Walking holidays can provide a sense of achievement after completing a long or difficult route, they can also provide feelings of accomplishment as you will be able to get to places, and see sights, that are not possible to access when not on foot. Finally, walking holidays can be guilt free, eco-friendly activities – so there’s no reason not to enjoy one!

If you think a walking holiday could be for you, then why not take a look at recently launched ‘A walk in the country’, combining both the perfect planning and experience from Mickledore, with the enjoyable, accessible and safe walking routes from OS maps. If this sounds like something you might enjoy, then have a look here.
