Destinations & Tours

Key Destinations


Signature Guided Walking

Their most popular holiday style comes with a choice of up to three guided walks every walking day. You’ll enjoy full-board at their UK country houses, plus all transport to and from walks included. Leave all the planning to them and discover stunning walking locations alongside their experienced HF Holidays Leaders. It’s what they do best.

Self-Guided UK Walking

With a focus on flexibility, freedom, and the joy of the journey, self-guided walking holidays are perfect for those who like to do things at their own pace. You can stick to one of their itineraries or tweak it slightly so you get to linger somewhere for longer. Either way, you’ll get to pick the walks that suit (easier, medium, or harder) in stunning locations where the countryside or coastline takes centre stage.

Special Interest Holidays

For those who love trying out new things, HF Holidays is well-versed in designing holidays that enrich and excite. Whether it’s art, music, cycling, yoga, pilates, cooking, reading, or bridge that appeals, their fabulous selection of special interest holidays will get you learning a new skill – or improving on one. They also offer fabulous sightseeing and cultural holidays, too.  

Guided Walking for Solos

All their holidays are suitable for solo travellers – but without the single supplement. You can socialise with other guests holidaying on their own and enjoy guided walks together. Going solo doesn’t have to mean going it alone.

Tread Lightly Guided Walking

A walking holiday with a minimal carbon footprint where all walks start and end on the doorstep of their country houses. With no need for transport, these holidays make things kinder to the planet – and offer more flexibility and freedom, too. Their experienced leaders can adjust walk times to suit weather windows and there’s no need to call time at the café or pub to rush back for a coach.
