Ask the expert - with Great Little Breaks

I’m stuck in a rut with my walking destinations – I love walking in the Peak District but I know very little about other areas and I need a nudge. Where can you suggest?

Hi Simon, we’re so blessed to have such a fantastic range of walking trails in the UK, each with its own bundle of hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Trying something new is exciting, but where to start is a very good question when there is so much choice! With roughly 19,490 miles of coastline to explore, and ample routes crossing our countryside, there are so many options to choose from. One of the walks we recommend and love is the Cleeve Hill walk in the Cotswolds. Starting in Winchcombe, also known as the ‘jewel in the Cotswold Crown’, this walk offers a plethora of history and culture as you wander past Sudeley Castle, before crossing Cleeve Hill Common. Ending up with a spectacular view across to Wales and the Breacon Beacons, this makes for a perfect walk. Another one of our personal favourite destinations that provides plenty of walking opportunities is Dorset with its amazing scenery. Here, The Golden Cap walk is a famous amble for tourists and locals alike, taking you through miles of ancient coastline and culminating at the highest point on England’s south-coast, Golden Cap. At 191 metres above sea level, the views across the Jurassic coast are truly unforgettable, and while on the coast a spot of fish and chips at a quintessentially English pub at the walk’s end will certainly round off your day. We thoroughly hope you will give these suggestions a try, as you won’t be disappointed! We would love to hear about your next adventure, wherever you decide visit. Enjoy!

Make a weekend of it!
