Byways Breaks help you plan your route around the distance you want to walk and possible places to stay. We then book your accommodation and organise your luggage transfers. It is a flexible service and we will do as much or as little as you want. It is aimed at independent walkers who don’t want a fully packaged walking holiday, but would like help organising their holiday. Booking accommodation on some parts of this walk can be difficult as accommodation in the more remote areas is scarce. Use our experience and knowledge of the walks to help you plan your holiday.
