Welcome to Byways Breaks

Award winning cycling and walking holidays in the UK

Byways Breaks have been arranging walking holidays, cycling holidays and cycle tours in the UK for more than 20 years. We know the best places to stay, and our UK cycling and walking routes are carefully planned to explore the most beautiful countryside, visit places of interest and stop at the best pubs and tea shops. We are proud to have been awarded ‘Best Tourism Experience 2008’ by Visit Chester and Cheshire.

All our walking holidays and cycling holidays are self-led, so you have the freedom to explore at your own pace. The gentle, unspoilt countryside of Shropshire, Cheshire and Welsh borders is a lovely area of the UK for walking and cycling. For cycling holidays, it’s not too flat to be boring, with the occasional hill and slope to give variety and views.

For walking holidays, the area offers rolling countryside with many footpaths and beautiful scenery. There is more hilly walking around Shropshire and the Welsh borders, including Offa’s Dyke Path and Glyndwr’s Way.  Coastal walks include sections of the Wales Coast Path, including Pembrokeshire, Anglesey, and North Wales. We offer a selection of walking holidays in Wales and north of England.

Our popular walker’s accommodation and luggage service for long distance trail walks covers Offa’s Dyke Path, Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Glyndwr’s Way, North Wales Coast Path, Ribble Way, Shropshire Way and Anglesey Coast Path. We help you plan your walking holiday around the distances you want to walk. We then book your accommodation in carefully selected, walker friendly B & Bs and pubs and arrange for your bags to be transferred each day.
