We have added a new walk to our Ancient Landscapes of Wessex self-guided itinerary. The world-famous stone circle of Stonehenge is just part of a walking exploration of its ceremonial landscape which leaves the visitor with a very different perspective on this amazing monument.

2018 Programme

After 35 years of producing a printed brochure, we have decided that from 2018 our programme of walking holidays will only be accessible online. We have been in touch with regular guests who do not have access to the internet and have provided a printed summary of what's on offer.

This new approach sits well with our environmental policy and enables us to keep our programme responsive to demand.


"Just a note to say that Nick and I loved every minute of our walk in Exmoor a few weeks ago…all sorts of wonderful memories but coming out of Withypool and over that stile ….the view was heart stopping.  We will never forget it."
