Walking Trails

Rugged coastline, verdant fells or snowcapped mountains - grab a map, pull on your boots and discover the UK's most wonderful walking areas - with the pub being is the ideal base for a walking holiday, offering delicious food and drink and comfortable boutique bedrooms. Here are a few of our favourite walking trails:

Pembrokeshire Coast Path

Jagged and remote, the Pembrokeshire coastline juts out towards the Irish Sea. Crumbling cliffs and picturesque villages pepper this breathtaking coastline. The best way to explore this stunning area of the UK is by trekking the 299km Coast Path from Amrothto St Dogmaels. Allow around two weeks, but for a taster base yourself at St David's, Britain’s smallest city, and strike out for the sands of St Brides Bay, where swimmers, beachcombers and surfers make the most of the unspoilt sands.

Cotswolds Way

If there is one walk to sum up the beautiful British countryside, it would be this 164km path winding through the gentle limestone hills of the Cotswolds, from stately Bath to the market town of Chipping Campden. This is the area of stately homes and afternoon tea, and after a long day of walking you’ll have earned a hearty scone with clotted cream.

Hadrian's Wall Path

When the Romans built Hadrian's Wall, they likely didn’t consider that their handiwork would one day form the backdrop for one of the country’s finest walks. Spanning 135km from Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria, to appropriately named Wallsend in Tyne and Wear, this National Trail combines bracing hiking with the cultural heritage for which the UK is famous.
