Short Walking Breaks in the UK

Byways Breaks arrange short walking breaks in the UK, in Wales, Shropshire and Cheshire. Our self-led short walking breaks include carefully chosen routes, walker friendly accommodation, detailed routes and directions, maps, background information about the things to see and do along the way. They also include luggage transfer and full support should you need any help.

Choose a single centre walking break, where you stay in one place with a selection of circular walks nearby. Or choose a short walking break in the UK where you follow a well signed walking trail and stay somewhere different each night while we transfer your luggage. See our fully inclusive short walking breaks below.

We also arrange – longer walking holidays on long distance trail walks, including Offa’s Dyke Path and lovely coastal walks like the Pembrokeshire Coast path
