UK Trail Walking Holidays

Byways Breaks offer a flexible route planning, accommodation booking and baggage transfer service for people walking long distance trail walks in Wales and the north of England. Our walks include – Offa’s DykePembrokeshire Coast PathAnglesey Coast PathNorth Wales Coast PathGlyndwr’s WayShropshire Way, and Ribble Way.

We help you plan your walking holiday around the distance you want to walk and possible places to stay. We then book your accommodation in walker friendly B & Bs/hotels and organise your luggage transfers. This is a flexible service and we will do as much or as little as you want. This service is aimed at independent walkers who don’t want a fully packaged walking holiday, but would like some expert help organising their holiday. Booking accommodation on some parts of walks can be difficult as accommodation in remote areas can be scarce. Use our experience and knowledge of the area, the trails, and accommodation options to help you plan your walking holiday. We will organise any length of holiday from a short break to the whole long distance path.
