Can I take this opportunity to thank and congratulate you both on your North West Walks business and the amazingly smooth operation that you have created. We have had the most wonderful experience, in some gorgeous weather (that really helped!) and met some delightful locals along the way as well. The Brits really do take their walking and outdoor pursuits seriously don't they!Each B&B and hotel that we stayed in were well appointed, brilliantly placed (always on the way for the next days walk, or at a point where we easily linked up - which helped our next days planning), with friendly knowledgable hosts as well. Our walk was completed over 17 days with three rest days built in, which we really enjoyed and which gave our legs and feet some well needed rest, as well as allowing us time to soak up three lovely towns and villages. The luggage always arrived (or in Keld arrived straight after we did) before we did and that operation in itself was fantatsically managed (so thank you to those businesses also). Can I wish you both well for the future and encourage you to continue to provide such a seamless experience for your clients. For us, this holiday was the best we have had and we are both extremely happy and proud to have walked such a fabulous route and had such a brilliant experience along the way. As we describe it to our friends, now that we are home I am confident that more Aussie business will be coming your way over the ensuing years. Again to both of you, thank you.
Vaughan and Lyn, Australia, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013

This is a very big thank you for setting up and booking the necessary details of our Coast to Coast walk. Everything went perfectly! We were very pleased with the accomodations that you selected for us, and the daily baggage transfers went flawlessly. The guidebook and the maps that you supplied were also excellent, and we made great use of them. We were also very pleased to discover that each time we arrived at a new location the proprietors were expecting us and greeted us by name. They also spoke very highly of you and your operation. We are aware that you can't actually take credit for the weather, but as it turns out, that was fantastic as well. All in all this was our best holiday ever, and we're hoping to come back next year to do it all again! Thanks again, Dean and Corinna, you did a fantastic job!
Dan & Kristen, Hawaii, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013


Just wanted to share that my September Hadrian's Wall walk was incredible! All went as smoothly as I've come to expect with guided walks hosted by Northwestwalks. This is the second walk I've done with not just your company, but with Scott as a guide. The luggage transfer was seamless, and our accommodations were exactly as required....clean, efficient, and comfortable. We arrive late in the afternoon, leave early in the morning. We ask for hot showers, comfortable beds, and a good breakfast. I was never disappointed. Can't wait for my next adventure....Thank you for the service you provide. In addition to everything going well on the walk itself, the information you provide as to what to see in the area at the start and conclusion of each walk I've also found helpful. I'm a solo traveler and you've taken all the anxiety out of doing this on my own. I'd give you a five star rating!!
Edie, USA, Hadrian's Wall Guided, 2013

Just a quick note to say thanks for making possible our Coast to Coast holiday which we found to be a richly enjoyable experience. We would like to compliment you all at Northwestwalks for a friendly and efficient service and hope to use your services in the future.
Andy, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013


This is to thank you for putting together a wonderful walking holiday for us. "The B&Bs we’ve stayed in have all been beautifully presented with comfortable beds and clean linen. The hosts have been invariably pleasant and usually happy to chat about themselves and their town or village. Some have been tiny cottages dating back to 16th century; a couple have been in large Victorian villas. Some hosts have been obsessively neat and controlling; one was a bloke’s B&B – a pint of beer and a discussion about 1990 Mercedes cars; one was run in a 16th C pub that was much bigger on the inside than the outside but the ceiling beams were built for Kerry’s height rather than Gordon’s. All looked after us with a solid breakfast that generally kept us going until dinner with a few snacks during the day. Dinner was sometimes memorable, like steak and ale pie at Ennerdale Bridge, Thai ginger fish and stir-fried veges at Broughton, filet Rossini at Richmond, fish pie and turbot at Robin Hoods Bay. And lots of great beers." Please thank the B&B owners.
Gordon and Kerry, Australia, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013

Would just like to email you and advise that I had a brilliant walk last week on the Hadrian's Wall Walk.
Nigel, UK, Hadrian's Wall Guided, 2013


Many thanks for a well organised trip. Our 4th with you and I hope not our last. The walk was lovely, with ever changing scenery, and we were lucky with the weather this time. Showers on day 1 then sunshine thereafter, but a bit windy nearer the coast. The highlights were the high level days Jedburgh - Kirk Yethholm - Wooler. Waymarking was excellent. We were glad we split the final day, both for distance and tide timing reasons, as it also gave us more time to explore Holy Island on the last day.
Paul, UK, St Cuthbert's Way Self-Guided, 2013

I have been meaning to write after completing the Guided Coast to Coast (1st June - 15th June) this year.Superbly organised! Thank you so much for all the work which, I'm sure, is quite considerable. We found the booking arrangements were very efficiently dealt with too. Being used to tenting wherever we go here in Australia - AND carrying it all - I found the accommodation to be luxury ++ !! Being guided also made for a relaxed walk. Wouldn't have changed a thing - even the weather was wonderful; raincoat on for half an hour during the entire walk. A long-held ambition achieved with many fond memories. Thank you for an excellent two weeks.
Ros, Australia, Coast to Coast Guided, 2013


Just to let you know I had the most fantastic time on the West Highland Way and Hadrian's Wall Path. Many thanks for the wonderful organisation and fabulous accommodation you booked for me, every place was perfect. Thanks for a great trip.
Christine, New Zealand, Hadrian's Wall Self-Guided, 2013

Both Mary and myself enjoyed the C2C walk with Wayne our guide being both informative and friendly. We were amazed that everything went so well, the luggage transfer was brilliant, the accommodation excellent, the group we were with all got on well. Thanks for a great walking holiday.
Steve and Mary, Australia, Coast to Coast Guided, 2013


I have just returned from walking the West Highland Way & want to say how terrific it was. Everything went very well with no problems & we all enjoyed it very much. One of the best things (besides the exceptionally friendly people we met along the way & the stunning scenery) was the good mix of long & short days which made for a nice relaxing time. Thank you very much for your great organisation. This is my second trip with NW Walks & I am sure there will be many more.
Robyn, Australia, West Highland Way Self-Guided, 2013

Thank you for assisting us over the holiday break witht the organization of our accommodation and luggage pickups for our trip along Hadrian's Wall. We loved the walking in the country, loved the history, the fact that there were not huge numbers of people out and about, and will certainly be doing it again - there is still much for us to explore.
Bernadette, Hong Kong, Hadrian's Wall Self-Guided, 2013


We are finally home after our amazing trip to Europe, the highlight of which was definitely the Tour du Mont Blanc. Please don’t tell Steve this, but wanted to let you know what a fantastic job he did as our tour guide. We couldn’t have asked for better arrangements, everything worked out really well. On every day, we saw so many wildflowers and orchids, it was just incredible, an amazing flowering season. As if that wasn’t enough, we all saw examples of most of the local wildlife, chamois, marmot, ibex, eagles – you name it – I reckon we saw it. Steve was able to give us lots of local information about plant varieties and the animals we saw along the way. The lunch stops he chose for us were to die for – talk about million dollar views. He even threw in just one miserable day of constant rain, just to make sure we fully appreciated the beautiful weather we had on the rest of the trip. All in all, it was a truly amazing hike – especially for a couple like Phillip and I who had never hiked before. We had a great bunch of people on the tour and Steve’s leadership and friendship capped it all off. Thanks for everything, we couldn’t have asked for better.
Jeanette and Phillip, Australia, Tour of Mont Blanc Guided, 2013

we have just returned from our Wall Trip and I think its fair to say we had a great time - the accommodation was very good throughout and the proprietors very friendly and helpful...... I've never eaten so much breakfast in such a small number of days as well as massive portions of pub food! The bags got to the right place everyday which amazed me..... and even the weather was great, except for one day. Thanks for making it such a good holiday
Sheila, UK, Hadrian's Wall Self-Guided, 2013


Just a short note of thanks and feedback about the Tour of Mont Blanc. Thanks again for a fantastic walk, to follow on from a Coast to Coast walk with NWW in 2012. It certainly lived up to the expectations; scenery was stunning, spectacular, etc etc. Big compliments to our guide Steve, very professional. Kept us informed re daily options with water & lunches, organised accommodation and meal times, and then got us around the 105 miles with a minimum of fuss. And answered numerous questions on the trail about the route, landscape etc. Enjoyed the range of accommodation and meals, from the pretty swish hotels to the more basic mountain refuges. As you said in your description of the walk, all part of the mountain experience. And a great rest day in Courmayeur with the cable car ride to 3335m, a real highlight. Thanks again, a great experience. Will be back for another TMB in 2015.
Ken, Australia, Tour of Mont Blanc Guided, 2013

Just to let you know all went well on our trek along the Offas Dyke...we thoroughly enjoyed the walk and thank you for arranging the accommodation & luggage transfers so well.
Sheila & Ray, New Zealand, Offa's Dyke Path Self-Guided, 2013


Just to let know we had a great holiday, everything went smoothly along hadrians wall walk, b&b were good and met some great people. Many thanks.
Steve and Eileen, UK, Hadrian's Wall Self-Guided, 2013

I just wanted to say what a fantastic experience the TMB was and also what an exceptional leader Steve is. I am sure that everyone else will say the same but he really is one in a million and a great asset to NWW . I hope that I will have the opportunity to walk with such an amazing group again. All of the arrangements went like clockwork and Steve was quietly there all of the time checking that all was going well.
Norma, UK, Tour of Mont Blanc Guided, 2013


The holiday was all and more with better than expected accommodation with high standards trying to be upheld. Obviously the places are aware of your standards and it seems you do an audit of things regularly....
Jeff, Australia, Coast to Coast Guided, 2013

One week on, just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the walk. Your organisation was perfect and everything went to plan.
Peter, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013


Now back in Colorado and walking in the higher fells here (13,000' +). But it's not as green as the Lake District! Hey just want to thank you again for all your work. It was a fantastic trip: all the students were sad to end it. I'm already scheming how to get back before too long.
Chip, USA, Tour of the Lake District Self-Guided, 2013

I returned from the Offa’s Dyke trail last Saturday and have been meaning to write to thank you for the wonderful efficiency of all the arrangements – the accommodation and the luggage transfers all worked absolutely according to plan without a hitch. You did a brilliant job.
Tim, UK, Offa's Dyke Path Self-Guided, 2013


I have recently completed the C2C. The biggest compliment I can pay to you is that you provided info up to the walk and I never had cause to contact you again. All went smoothly, I enjoyed the B&Bs and the luggage transfers went without hitch to add to a wonderful experience overall. Got the long distance bug now so will be in touch again I am sure.
Bob, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013

I very much enjoyed doing Offa's Dyke path, thanks for organising it for me. I had very good weather. The accommodation was very high standard and there were no problems at all. I am looking forward to my next holiday with you.
Susan, UK, Offa's Dyke Path Self-Guided, 2013


Having finally got back to home base wanted to thank you for the great job you did in organizing and facilitating our Coast to Coast.....
Christine, USA, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013

We greatly enjoyed our walk up the Great Glen. Thank you for organising it so efficiently. Everything went smoothly, including the weather which was fantastic - no rain and no midges! All the B&Bs were very welcoming and comfortable, and some were of an exceptionally high standard. There were unexpected little touches. The highlights were a pine martin feeding outside our bedroom window at Fort William, and a small decanter of sherry and fresh baked shortbread by our bedside at Drumnadrochit. Others were an uninterrupted view of Ben Nevis from the breakfast table at Gairlochy and banana bread straight from the oven on our arrival at Invermoriston. It was a very memorable holiday. Thank you.
Hugh and Margaret, UK, Great Glen Way Self-Guided, 2013


Just a quick note to thank you for the superb organisation of our walk. The accommodation was excellent and all the information and directions were good. We didn't get lost - just a few times wandered off the route. We thoroughly enjoyed it and in spite of some members not able to walk regularly we all managed it. We are thinking of doing the Cotswold way next year which I believe you do. Many thanks.
Judy, UK, Coast to Coast Part 2 Self-Guided, 2013

We have just returned to NZ and reflect on our walk. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The B&B's were very good...If we were to do it again we would build in one rest day somewhere....You are so fortunate in the UK in having so may walks/pathways to follow and do. So thanks for what you did for us and we have already recommended you to others.
Maurie and Denise, New Zealand, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013


A follow up note after our successful C2C walk. Everything went perfectly, without a hitch....B&B drying facilities were usually very good, some superb, and we had no trouble getting some washing done from time to time. The B&Bs were almost always excellent. We were lucky enough to be sole occupants at a couple of farm-type accommodations which meant huge rooms and top-class service. Owners were usually helpful with lifts to pubs, etc....Finally, thank you for the excellent service, and we will have no hesitation using you again if possible, and we have already recommended you to friends.
John and Hilary, Australia, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013

We used the services of Northwestwalks for our recent self-guided Coast to Coast walk. We were most pleased with all of the accommodations and the luggage shuttle. Thank you for arranging everything so that we could focus on the walk. The weather was not the most hospitable, but it all added to the experience of the journey and will certainly allow us to embellish our tales to friends and family!
Ethel and Glen, USA, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013


Thought I would take this opportunity to say thankyou for organising the recent walk which I carried out with a colleague.Everything went so smoothly, the accomodation was always very good and everyone was so friendly. We were blessed with fine weather for the first 6 days with heavy rain only on the final day but even then it kindly stopped when we were about to come down through Glen Nevis. The whole experience was unforgettable, we had never attempted any walk of this kind before,now our appetite has been wetted we are planning another walk with you for next year. Once Again Many Thanks.
Tony, UK, West Highland Way Self-Guided, 2013

Just to let you know that our Coast to Coast walk was very successful and that all your arrangements and baggage transfers worked perfectly......
Janet and Michael, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2013


Good morning dean. the coast to coast walk was an amazing trip and experience. I did it all ! The most beautiful sceneries and landscapes. I will speak highly about your company and i will book another walk for 2014 ! Steve is a wonderful guide.
Christine, UK, Coast to Coast Guided, 2013

We successfully completed the next part of the C2C last week from Keld to Ingleby Cross. Many thanks for arranging everything - all worked really well and the b&bs all very nice with helpful hosts.
Norma, UK, Coast to Coast Part 2 Self-Guided, 2013


Just a short note to compliment you on the organisation of the walk, from the website information to the baggage handling to the bed and breakfasts which were all first class. I did the Coast to Coast in September 2012, and it was just a great experience...And of course compliments to our guide, Scott. Very experienced with a good sense of humour, he did a great job. thanks again, will be back for another C2C with your company. Unforgettable.
Ken, Australia, Coast to Coast Guided, 2012

I am contacting you to thank you very much for the wonderful arrangements. Everything worked very well - from the accommodation to the transportation of our luggage each day. Thanks to you we were able to concentrate on completing the walk. We would definitely consider using your company again for any future adventures.
Nita, UK, West Highland Way Self-Guided, 2012


Many thanks for providing another well organised and enjoyable walking holiday. All the B&B's were very good, and the route well signed so no problems.
Paul, UK, Great Glen Way Self-Guided, 2012

Just wanted to send a brief note to thank you for the work you did to arrange the itinerary, lodging, and baggage transport on our coast to coast walk. The accommodations at every point were incredible! Beautiful lodging, great hosts, amazing food! The baggage arrived without hitch. Thank you thank you...everything was fantastic!
Laurel, USA, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012


Just wanted, rather belatedly, to thank you for the organisation on the Cumbria Way trip at the beginning of August. Everything worked out really well and the accommodation was excellent. Thank you
Karen, UK, Cumbria Way Self-Guided, 2012

One month has already passed since Michael and I enjoyed Scotland's nature by walking the Westhighland Way. We made many nice acquaintances and had a wonderful time, also highly due to your friendly and cosy accommodations...A big thank you goes to "Northwestwalks", you chose excellent B&Bs, Guest Houses and Hotels for us, the luggage transport worked perfectly fine and you turned our holiday into a full success.
Manuela and Michael, Switzerland, West Highland Way Self-Guided, 2012


Finished my coast to coast walk at Kirkby Stephen and just wanted to thank you for the package you put together for me at short notice. Everything was great...
Steve, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012

A quick thank you to North West Walks for organising our recent walking holiday. My family and I walked the Dales Way unguided from 9 to 17 July. Being inexperienced walkers with two children, we were initially apprehensive about signing up. However, the accommodation was superb (without exception) and always having our luggage waiting for us when we arrived each day was terrific. It certainly was a holiday that we will all remember for years to come and we are now planning the for another challenge next year.
Simon, Dubai, Dales Way Self-Guided, 2012


I have returned home having completed the Cleveland Way. I had a really great time and it was very enjoyable. The organisation of the baggage transfer worked very well and the accommodation was of a very high standard. I was very lucky with the weather - sunshine all the way! This was my first attempt at trail walking and I will certainly be thinking of more long distance walks in the future.
Susan, UK, Cleveland Way Self-Guided, 2012

Back from a totally marvellous walk on the Tour of Mont Blanc. Everything was to the high standard I had experienced from the c2c with you last year. Your arrangement of magnificent weather this year was especially noteworthy :) Many thanks to NWW for the organisation of the walk and to Steve for his professional leadership throughout. I have no hesitation whatever in recommending NWW...
Ian, Australia, Tour of Mont Blanc Guided, 2012


I completed the C2C walk...I just wanted to let you know we thought it was a fantastic experience and it was the best holiday I’ve ever had. Scott, our guide, was marvellous and I wanted to pass on the highest praise for him...
Gill and Kate, UK, Coast to Coast Guided, 2012

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Coast to Coast Walk. I should first of all say a big thanks to Wayne - he made the walk a really memorable trip and I enjoyed his company. The accommodation was cracking - I loved the diversity of places (and hosts!) to stay with. The weather was brilliant so we were very lucky all round.
Maurice, UK, Coast to Coast Guided, 2012


Just a quick e mail to say thank you we had a fantastic walk all went well and the quality of the accommodation was spot on, thank you.
Sarah, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012

We just want to say how much we enjoyed our coast to coast walk. It is something that we had been thinking and talking about doing for a few years now. We are so glad we have done it and that we chose Northwestwalks. It was first class accomodation and arrangements throughout. A big thanks also to our excellent guide Paul for helping to make it an unforgetable experience.
Allan & Maria, UK, Coast to Coast Guided, 2012


Just wanted to let you know that my wife and I and our friend have just returned from completing the Cleveland Way. We were delighted with all the arrangements you made. Everything went very smoothly...Thank you for such excellent co-ordination of the trip. My wife and I did the coast to coast with you last year and we will certainly recommend your company to anyone else we meet who wants to do a long distance walk.
Michael, UK, Cleveland Way Self-Guided, 2012

We arrived home safely about a week ago after a well spent time on the West Highland Way. Thanks for the work of booking and arranging everything. We had a good time and it all went very smoothly in the accomodations and on track.
Florien and Jaap, Netherlands, West Highland Way Self-Guided, 2012
We have completed our walk of Hadrians Wall, and would like to thanks you for the wonderful organisation and excellent accommodation. All hosts were excellent...
Colin, Dianne and Kate, Australia, Hadrian's Wall Self-Guided, 2012

I've just completed the Coast to Coast walk which I booked through your company. Just a short message to say that everything was spot on...Food was excellent everywhere and walkers' needs well catered for. The luggage moving was also excellent with my suitcase waiting for me at every location.
Jim, Australia, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012


We have just got home after completing the West Highland Way, having had a wonderful holiday with superb weather. I thought that you may appreciate some customer feed back - NWW communication and documentation: First Class. NWW arrangements: First Class. Arrangements with Baggage Handling; Like Clockwork; No problems at all...
Michael, UK, West Highland Way Self-Guided, 2012

We just wanted to thank you for all the arrangements you made on our behalf for our recent coast to coast walk. All the B&B and luggage transporting arrangements worked out really well and we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. You will be pleased to know that everyone we mentioned Northwest Walks to en route was very complimentary about you both! The standard of B&Bs was really good...
Sara, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012


Finished the Cotswold Way and many thanks as the B&B's were superb.
Paul, UK, Cotswold Way Self-Guided, 2012

Thank you for making a truly memorable holiday made very easy!! thank you for all your hard work, all the transfers were bang on time and our bags were waiting for us at the end of each day, a brilliant service we will certainly be recommending you......This was our first walking holiday which was made better by your knowledge and attention to detail. Thank you for all your hard work, very much appreciated.
Debby, Simon and Chris, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012


I recently completed this Coast-to-Coast with a couple of friends. All three of us wanted to say a big thank you to NWW for a superbly organized holiday. Luggage transfers worked like clockwork and we were very impressed by the standard of accommodation, which was above our expectations. So many of our landladies went out of their way to make us welcome and help us on our way. We traveled at a fairly gentle pace, had a great time and took home lots of memories. Thank you both once again.
Richard, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012

Just a short line to thank you both for organising a wonderful experience for me. I had no experience of any kind of serious walking but I did my training and knowing I had comfortable, welcoming accommodation every night (who were all expecting me) was very reassuring. You obviously take your research seriously and I absolutely loved it all....
Robin, UK, Coast to Coast Self-Guided, 2012


I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the coast to coast walk over the last 2 weeks, Steve was a wonderful guide, we couldn't have had a better one, and the weather was kind to us as well! Belinda and I were getting enthused about doing the Mont Blanc walk next year so we may be in touch!
Carole, UK, Coast to Coast Guided, 2012

just a quick email to let you know how much I enjoyed the Coast to coast walk Steve was fantastic. A very good guide and very knowledgeable in the history and geology of the walk and his people skills were second to none. The accommodation were far above my expectations, thanks for a terrific walk i'm sure you will see me again.
Rod, UK, Coast to Coast Guided, 2012


A big thank you for a superb trip. Very well organised….the accommodation was excellent and we were treated like royalty. The whole experience was a real milestone in our lives and a real great sense of achievement. I will thoroughly recommend your company to any interested parties,
Mark, UK, Private Guided, 2011

Just a note to let you know I have reached Bowness on Solway, the end of the trail. Before departing tomorrow, I want to thank you once again for all of your assistance. The accommodations were terrific, the luggage transfers were flawless, and your customer service was impeccable. Like last year's coast to coast walk, the Hadrian's Wall walk surpassed all of my expectations and I look forward to booking with Northwestwalks in the future.
George, USA, Self-Guided, 2011


Got back from our vacation last night and just wanted to drop you a great big THANKS. It was wonderful and mainly in part to all that you did. The B & B's, pubs, and inns were perfect with all the hosts kind and very helpful… It was a great experience and we will recommend you to anyone we hear of going that way. Thanks again so much for all your help in planning our trip we appreciate it.
Beverly, Hawaii, Self-Guided, 2011

I just wanted to thank you for arranging my Hadrian’s Wall holiday. I really enjoyed the experience, and would definitely recommend your service to my friends. The B&Bs were all good – friendly proprietors, clean and comfortable accommodations, and great breakfasts. Thanks again for making my Hadrian's Wall walk such a worthwhile experience
Doug, Canada, Self-Guided, 2011


I want to thank you for helping organize our recent (August) coast to coast walk. We had a memorable holiday made all the more enjoyable by the standard of accommodation arranged on our behalf. Without fail our hosts were friendly and helpful and the daily luggage transfer was faultless. Even the weather was kind to us.
Bruce, Australia, Self-Guided, 2011

This is just a brief note to thank you for the recent TMB holiday from which I have just returned. The organisation was excellent & Steve was a great leader & guide. It was one of my best holidays ever! The group walked well together and formed a close bond of friendship. There was fun & laughter, the scenery was magnificent and the weather good.
Janet, UK, Guided, 2011


I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing adventure, the accommodation was excellent and the staff at all the locations were helpful and friendly, all of your arrangements including bag transfers made what could have been a challenging trip carefree apart from a few blisters. Thanks again for everything; we will be using you again for the next adventure.
Roger, UK, Self-Guided, 2011

I recently returned home from this most enjoyable trip. This was in no small part due to the competent leadership of Steve. He represented your company well.
Brendan, Ireland, Guided, 2011


Just to send a big thank you to all at North West walks for all your great organisation on your part to make our walking holiday a great success, for a second year! From the car parking to our leader! All the B&B’s we stayed at were very good and the personal contact you have with the people who run these is amazing, they talk so well of your company and make us so welcome.
Mo, UK, Guided, 2011

We are home and starting to get over jet lag, so I wanted to take this chance to thank you for the well-organized and great trip you put together for us. The B&B's were very good… The logistics for trips like these are complicated and it all went smoothly. Our bags were always there waiting for us and the proprietors were always expecting us. Thanks so much.
Meg, USA, Self-Guided, 2011


I must tell you how much i enjoyed the C2C walk that we completed on Friday, hard, yes, but fantastic scenery, the standard of accommodation was first class with great breakfasts. We all agreed what a wonderful guide Scott turned out to be, giving excellent leadership and a really supportive side to the less able or fit in our group, full of praise for him.
John, UK, Guided, 2011

Just a quick note to let you know that we finished our final section of the Coast to Coast and were pleased with the accommodation, particularly at the Lion and Great Broughton… overall a great holiday and we will come back to you in the future when we decide on our next trip. Thank for all your assistance, it has made life very easy for us!
Barbara, UK, Self-Guided, 2011


We do want to send an e-mail to thank you for organizing the walk of Tour du Mont Blanc. We really did have a wonderful experience and great memories. Your organization for pacing the walk so the days were timed well was great. Steve did a tremendous job - more than excellent! …we look forward to keeping in touch - maybe for another walk which we are very keen on doing. Thanks again
Fiona and Graeme, Australia, Guided, 2011

Well we completed the Coast to Coast on the 10th July and felt we must write and say THANK YOU! We found the service that North West Walks provided to be excellent, reasonably priced and without exception the B&B’s we stayed at to be extremely comfortable and the hosts friendly and very obliging…. Thank you once again and we will have no hesitation in recommending your company to our walking friends in Australia.
Ray and Winsome, Australia, Self-Guided, 2011


I have been meaning to email you ever since we got back from our walk to say how much we enjoyed it and how impressed we were with the organisation, accommodation and baggage transfer service…We have already decided we must do the second half of the walk another time, so you will doubtless be hearing from me again. Thanks again for a very successful holiday.
Jean, UK, Self-Guided, 2011

We have just returned from a very enjoyable TMB which went smoothly and with generally good weather, good accommodation and always good company…Steve was a reliable and friendly guide and we had a good holiday- many thanks.
Vicki, UK, Guided, 2011


Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for enabling me to complete the Coast to Coast walk recently. It was a wonderful experience - unforgettable. Thank you for all your help in booking my accommodation & transferring my luggage. It all went without a hitch. I am now thinking of doing the West Highland Way & I'll definitely book it with you if I do decide to do it. Many thanks again - see you next year!
Sue, Ireland, Self-Guided, 2011

Well here we are back in NZ having finished the C 2 C in fine fettle… In other words we thoroughly enjoyed…Many thanks for the fine organising of our trip, everything worked out very well, we enjoyed the contrasts in our accommodation plus the anticipation of what lay ahead at the end of each day…We have no hesitation in recommending your company to others and may be tempted to look at coming back to do another walk sometime. Once again thank you
Sheila and Ray, New Zealand, Self-Guided, 2011


We completed our Coast to Coast to walk on Sunday. We just wanted to let you know that it was a wonderful experience for us and that all the arrangements made by you worked like clockwork. So thank you very much for all your organisation - we appreciated it all immensely - including the selection of B&Bs and hotels. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to friends.
Jennifer and David, Australia, Self-Guided, 2011

Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service when I did the West Highland Way and the Great Glen Way. I had a great time…I have recommended you to a few people…I look forward to booking another walk with you next year.
Chris, UK, Self-Guided, 2011


We got back from the first half of the C2C on Friday night and wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed the walk. It was great to have everything booked up in advance and our cases waiting for us when we arrived at each B and B… we were really pleased that you had booked us into such comfortable accommodation along the route. We are already planning the second half and will be contacting you shortly. Meanwhile, thank you so much for organising everything so well!
Sara-Jane, UK, Self-Guided, 2011

Many thanks for your organisation of our walk and making things go so smoothly. All of us had a great time and found the whole experience very rewarding…The places we stayed at were all very good and we'd be very happy to recommend your firm …
Nigel, UK, Self-Guided, 2011


Recently my son... and I with Steve as the guide completed the Coast 2 Coast walk. We were both blown away by the experience and would like to sincerely thank you and your company for making our adventure so enjoyable…your advice about being prepared and equipped for the walk was correct. Hoping to be back soon to tackle another walk…soon.
Howard, Australia, Self-Guided, 2011

We thought you might like some feedback as we have just returned from doing the Coast to Coast booked through you. All of your arrangements were excellent and we were very pleased with the high standard of B&B accommodation. The transfer of the bags went very smoothly …Your instructions and other paperwork were very clear…Some of the B&B’s were exceptional…All in all, some very good choices by North West Walks. We were recommended to your company by our friends…we would certainly recommend North West Walks to others. With many thanks.
Michael, UK, Self-Guided, 2011


Our group of 12 Canadians would like to thank North West Walks for arranging our recent Coast to Coast adventure…We all agree it was the experience of a lifetime and beyond expectations. The accommodations were excellent, with friendly, informative and generous hosts. We enjoyed delicious and varied evening meals … with the luggage always waiting for us on arrival. Our guide, Scott, was superb. We appreciated his efficiency, knowledge, sense of humour and gentle encouragement (it's just up the hill and around the corner!). We would have been lost without him…Thank you again for organizing such a special trip.
David, Canada, Private Guided, 2011

I am writing this email to say thank you for a very special holiday which was well organised and well led …As it turned out the accommodation booked by North West Walks was excellent and my big nightmare of sharing a room with a stranger was not a problem - I got on with my roommate… straight away and we will very likely do some other walks together. Our guide, Steve, kept a careful watch over us and quickly assessed the strengths and weaknesses of the group … So, all in all, a brilliant experience not to be forgotten.
Duncan, UK, Guided, 2011


Just a quick email to say thank you for the Coast to Coast walk. The holiday was excellently organised and the accommodation was extremely good – I cannot fault it at all and it all contributed to one of the best holidays I have ever had. If I hear of anyone else who wants to do the Coast to Coast I will certainly recommend you to them.
Gary, UK, Guided, 2011

Just a short note to say I am really pleased with the way our guided walk went over the last two weeks. The accommodation each night was very good, baggage transfer was perfect every day & our guide Steve did a fantastic job …Thank you once again to all at NWW
Neil, UK, Guided, 2011


We have successfully completed our Coast to coast and want to thank you for organising it for us. Everything went perfectly to plan - our bags always waiting for us and the accommodation and breakfasts were all very good and a few even exceeded our expectations. It was a fantastic experience with wonderful walking and … we had great weather and did not want to stop walking!
Susie, UK, Self-Guided, 2011

Just wanted to say what a great time I had doing the coast to coast walk between 18th April and 30th April… the whole trip was great and I'm grateful to North West Walks for organising it all for me… It was an awesome experience.
Jessica, UK, Self-Guided, 2011

Stephen, Canada, Guided, 2010

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the organisation you did for our holiday walking Hadrian's Wall. The whole holiday was superb. … We shall have no hesitation in contacting you again next year when we decide which walk we will do.

Thanks again and I'll have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone else I meet who is contemplating doing the walk.

Hello Dean, I just wanted to let you know that I had a brilliant holiday, thanks. Everything about it was fab and I can't wait to do another one.
Nicola, UK, Self Guided, 2010


I would like to thank you for arranging the trip. I returned yesterday, thoroughly enjoyed myself and met some interesting people along the way. All the accommodation was excellent… Thanks again for arranging a memorable experience.
Stephen, UK, Self Guided, 2010

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the Dales Way last week. It was one of the best holidays we've ever had!... Everything went like clockwork, so thank you, we can't wait for the next one.
Mervyn & Jan, UK, Self Guided, 2010


Just a line to say that the break went very well and was one of my most enjoyable breaks. The transfer of the baggage was first class and we enjoyed the accommodation you arranged.
Colin, UK, Self Guided, 2010

Just returned home from our UK trip which included the Coast to Coast walk booked through your company. Thought I would write to say how much we enjoyed the walk and although strenuous the fantastic scenery and friendship among walkers met along the way made it a most wonderful experience. The walk was made all the more enjoyable due to the excellent B & B's and luggage service.
Ivan, Australia, Self Guided, 2010


I haven't had the chance to thank you for organizing our West Highland Way trek. We had great weather which helped but even the last blustery day, perhaps more typical of NW Scotland, was a real pleasure. What added to the trip, besides the beautiful landscape, was the camaraderie in the B and Bs plus the reward of raising a pint most evenings. You did us proud in the arrangements (and suggestions) especially given that I wrote you late.
Paul, Canada, self guided 2010.

Dear Dean, Charles has now come home proudly bearing his certificate which is displayed in the kitchen. The walk was extremely well organised and all praise for Bob for his wonderful support and guidance.
Charles, Australia, guided 2010.


Thanks a lot myself and my son had a great coast to coast walk. And we were well looked after at the Bed and Breakfast would recommend your company to everybody.
David and Mark, UK, self guided 2010.

A quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed the Coast to Coast Walk under the efficient guidance of Steve! A most memorable two weeks that I will never forget and I would like to congratulate Northwestwalks on the overall organisation of the walk. The days were tough but the overnight accommodation was always comfortable and you have obvioiusly researched the specific pubs and B&Bs. Good beer and good food.
Ian, Australia, guided 2010.


I am writing to thank you for the excellent organisation of the accommodation and the luggage transfer, which contributed to what was a truly brilliant experience. Maggie, UK, self guided 2009.

It was brilliant and can't wait for august when we do the rest of the CtoC. Alison, UK, self guided 2009.

We had an excellent trip doing the coast to coast. We were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation you booked us, and the warmth of welcome so many of them gave us, especially when we so late booking - thank you very much for all your efforts. Merryn, UK, self guided 2009.

Just arrived home after walking the Coast to Coast and wanted to write straightaway to say thanks for pulling out the stops at such short notice for us. You really did us proud. Annie, UK, self guided 2009

Well organized, we had a gorgeous holiday. You took everything off my hands, I only had to worry about walking. Very nice. Ronald, Netherlands, self guided 2009.

Having just completed the C to C walk on Friday I would like to say that the whole walk was very well organised. Our two guides, Wayne and Scott were excellent and the B&B's were just right after a hard day's walking. Thankyou for an amazing two weeks. Roger, UK, Guided 2009.

I have just completed the C2C with a friend and we would both like to let you know that your arrangements for accomodation and transfers were faultless, well done NWW! We would certainly book with you again. The B&Bs were all different with rooms varying from the "bijou" to the enormous! and the owners were all most welcoming and helpful when needed.... Roger, UK, self guided 2009.

Just a note to say that we really enjoyed our walk on the C2C...Many thanks for making the arrangements for us......the accommodation was excellent and knowing that we had the security of the mini-bus backup was re- assuring. Nicholas, Ireland, self guided 2009.

Pam and I have returned now to Australia after what we consider to be an absolutely outstanding experience with nww. We were initially attracted to the walk thru your website and your own prompt responses to our queries. We found the organisation of the walk thoroughly professional and helpful at all points, and Scott was simply magnificent. Many thanks once more for helping make the journey such excellent value for money, and thoroughly challenging and enjoyable. Pam & Ian, Australia, self guided 2008.

Just a belated big thanks for all your organisation and help in getting me across England. It certainly was the highlight of my 12 months in UK and truly memorable despite the weather. I know I couldn't have made it without NWW and Scott and being part of a group was an added incentive to complete the 192 miles. Ray, Australia, Guided 2008.

Now that I am back in Australia I would like to express my sincere thanks for a wonderful experience on the C2C. All aspects of the walk were without fault..... So thank you for a truly memorable 15 days. I have already recommended you to friends who also dream of adding the C2C to their list of achievements. Jennifer, Australia, Guided 2008.

We have just come back from our short break having walked from St Bees to Patterdale. We have had a wonderful time and I wanted to thank you for all your assistance in making the arrangements for us. The accommodation was excellent and luggage transfers very efficient. Thanks very much, I will be happy to recommend Northwestwalks to others. Barbara, UK, self guided 2008.

Hi Dean, just a quick email to thank you for organising such a brilliant holiday - I had the time of my life. I have not stopped raving about the whole thing since I got home. Please thank John and Scott from me. I am now eagerly planning next year's adventure! Beth, UK, guided 2008.

We had a wonderful time and quite frankly I wish I were still going! All of the B and B's were very good and there was an interesting mix of guesthouses and pubs. The owner was always welcoming and helpful and they were well located near to the track... Graeme & Pamela, Australia, self guided 2008.

Just a note to let you know that Lionel, Tim and I all had a thoroughly good time on our recent 'Coast to Coast' walk with your organisation. Now that the passage of over a week has passed and we are returned to routine and familiarity, I felt compelled to write to you to thank you for the memorable and thoroughly enjoyable trip. Trevor, Australia, guided 2008.

Many thanks for taking such good care of your Canadian customers. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. NWW is a very well run and professional organization. Wayne, Steve, and that really tall old dessert eater “Soggy John” made our trip very enjoyable. Ned, Canada, private guided holiday 2008.

We truly enjoyed the walk. The guides were great and Janice and I had a lot of fun. Your organization was tremendous. Thanks for your work in providing us with a tremendous vacation. George, Canada, private guided holiday 2008.

Just a short note to say thankyou very much to everyone at Northwestwalks for organising my holiday. Matthew, UK, guided 2008.

Just a note to say thank you for a wonderful trip. We had a fantastic time. Obviously the scenery is impressive.We also felt we were incredibly fortunate with the weather and the composition of our group. Ros, Australia, guided 2008.

We have just completed the above walk and would like to say how much we enjoyed the challenge of it all and to thank you for organising it so efficiently. It was the first time we had used the baggage transfer and were very impressed with the whole system - it made our walking holiday far more enjoyable and less stressful. We found all the accommodation very good and everybody was so welcoming and friendly. Thank you very much. Bob & Rosemary, UK, Self Guided 2008.

Tom Boyle - a pint for my feet

Dear Dean and John, I would like to thank you both for the fantastic job you did in guiding us across England on the coast to coast walk. Without you showing us the way I am certain we would have got lost and at best taken much longer and walked many more unneccessary miles. Having you also allowed us to focus on the walk and enjoy it far more. Thank you also for the efficient transfer of our baggage each day which was always there when we arrived each evening. On balance the accomodation over the 16 days was very good. The guided walk was definitely very good value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending nww.
