Tailored Weekends

If you have a group of friends and you’d like us to organise a weekend for you (2 or 3 nights) we can do this.

How does it work?

There’s a choice of accommodation to suit your budget and taste: from simple bunkhouse to the luxury end of the spectrum.

We will arrange catering after a discussion depending on what you’d like – a popular option is catered Friday/ local pub Saturday and self-catered Sunday. We care about providing quality food and never cut corners with this.

Sample activities range from hill walking, fell running, mountain biking to yoga or guided woodland meditation.

You might like to mix of activities. Perhaps you’d like to go Fell or Trail running as part of the weekend – or have a morning on learning to read a map more proficiently. It could be that you’d like a nature walk with an expert guide for a morning. New to mountain biking, we can provide tuition, bike hire and riding for a weekend or part of a weekend or maybe you’d like to explore a particular area and its history by walking.

We also offer trail running fitness weekends where we provide a number of activities aimed at supporting the active body including two talks. A mix of outdoor and indoor sessions and including our now famous sports massage.

All activities are taken by qualified specialists.
And, we are picky about who we use!
