HF Holidays have been creating walking and activity holidays since 1913. You can choose from our 18 picturesque UK locations and stay in award-winning 3 and 4-star country houses, with a wealth of walks on your doorstep. Breaks are for 3, 4 or 7-nights' full board accommodation, with all meals from dinner on arrival to breakfast on departure day.

HF Holidays walk leaders will make sure you get the most out of your holiday, visiting iconic locations, discovering wildlife, history, geology, heritage and more and revealing their own favourite hidden gems. There's transport to and from the walks and a choice of up to three guided walks each day of differing grades and lengths. Or, if you want, you can take your time and explore on your own, on a Self-Guided Country House Escape.

Named after the novel by Sir Walter Scott, it offers excellent facilities and is surrounded by extensive grounds. Whether you prefer the challenge of the Roaches, Stanage Edge and the Dark Peak, or meandering through green valleys and pretty villages, the Peak District is home to a superb contrast of landscapes. With a daily choice of walks each day, your holiday can be as relaxing or adventurous as you choose.

We have great walks right on our doorstep including the shapely hill of Caer Caradoc, and the great moorland ridge of the Long Mynd.

The huge rock amphitheatre of Malham Cove – once a waterfall to rival Niagara Falls – and the scenic cascades of Gordale Scar, are a snapshot of the wealth of natural wonders nearby.
