20 Yrs Younger after my Holiday in Dorset!

This was my first Ramblers’ Holiday and the first time on any walking holiday for about 20 years. Overweight, unfit and unaccompanied – I had my doubts about this holiday before I set off.

Walking in Tintern

This was my husband Roger’s first walking holiday, and on the first day we met our group. This was full of some very interesting people and very experienced walkers.

Christmas in the North Wiltshire Cotswolds

Although a veteran of many holidays with Ramblers Worldwide I have only recently started to discover the pleasures of the Countrywide holidays and I was looking forward to my 5 night break this Christmas, exploring the North Wiltshire Cotswolds.

Throwing Sticks in Lovely Llangollen

This was the first holiday for us that allowed holiday goers to bring their dogs. The fact that the three dogs that came along were Border Collies was perfect; after all we were in Border Collie country and it seemed that every other dog we saw was a border collie!

The Edge of Wales

Having eventually arrived at our hotel on the rather remote Llyn Peninsula in North Wales, and met the other 8 members of our walking group, we were delighted with the varied menu choice and extremely generous portions at our first – and subsequent – dinners.

Long Mynd

Paul Sparrow was our gentle and conscientious guide for the five glorious days of walking the Shropshire hills, laden down with anoraks, waterproof trousers, hats and scarves – none of which were needed as we basked in warm spring sunshine.

Bowness on Windermere

Arriving at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel on Sunday 10th May (once owned by Beatrix Potter), I met early arrivals and regular walkers Colin Mills and Lynwood Newman. We enjoyed a great dinner and a chance to catch up on the last year’s news and gossip.

Settle Carlisle Railway

Our first walk using the Settle Carlisle Railway was from Horton-in-Ribblesdale, and was to end at the famous Ribblehead Viaduct. The geological features of the limestone, sandstone terrain, with its sinkholes and fast flowing disappearing streams, were explained by Simon our Leader.

West Highland Way Highlights

Fantastic scenery walking along Loch Lomond in brilliant sunshine; sparkling water, blue sky with a backdrop of mountains – very uplifting.
