You can purchase evening meals either at the accommodation or nearby. When our event planners send you the schedule with itinerary you could prearrange directly with the accommodation or during the walk.
For lunches we would suggest bringing some of your own favourite snack bars and then asking the accommodation for a packed lunch for the following day and also supplementing that at stops en-route.
Accommodation is generally at B&B, guest houses and small hotels. Once booked in, your event planner will send you a list of your booked accommodation. It is possible to adjust according to preference at this stage so please mention it if you wish to change.
If you would like to bring your four legged friend, then we will do our best to source dog friendly accommodation. It is usually possible but if it were not, then we would suggest a change of date to enable it or offer a refund. There may be a small surcharge for the overnight stays. Therefore, once booked in, please alert your event planner that you would like to bring your dog and we can proceed from there.

If you would prefer to have a guide for your walk, even just for one day, then we are happy to help. We can provide a qualified leader (also first aid qualified) to lead your trek or on just one of the sections. Just ask us.
A guide can not only take the stress out of navigation, but you will also find them a great asset in terms of providing an insight into all things environment and nature.
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end at some point and when you arrive at the end of the trail, you have one of several options. If you have not booked an additional night’s stay then we can transfer your luggage to a location of your choice. From there you may have onward travel arranged as per the ‘Getting There and Back’ tab above.
Some people like to treat themselves to a night’s stay at the end. And why not? You’ve earned it. You can arrange this as an optional add on with your event planner.
After placing your booking with us, you will in the first instance receive an automated email from our system confirming receipt of your reservation. If you don’t receive it, it is worth checking your spam/clutter folder.
In the process of placing your booking, you will generally set up an access password to our online gateway where you can review the details of the booking.
Your personal event planner will then be in touch with you to start to confirm the details. This contact will usually be taken up in the working day after receipt of your booking, but may, in busy times, take a little longer. The event planner will then liaise with you regarding the details of the course. If you have any specific requirements, please do mention it at this stage.
For available dates please see the ‘build your trip’ option on the left hand side on desktops or at the bottom on mobiles. You can reserve your space via this route.

Oxford is world-famous for its prestigious university but there is so much more to this remarkable city than its 38 colleges in the city’s medieval centre. Nicknamed the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’, Oxford offers an abundance of history, stunning architecture, museums, art galleries as well as plenty of restaurants to please any foodie.
The historic centre is small enough to explore on foot. Visit Oxford castle, Carfax Tower for stunning views of the city, the iconic Bodleian Library, Museum of Natural History or book a University of Oxford tour to explore its stunning architecture.
Tired of walking? Give your feet a rest and hop on an open bus tour. If boating is more your thing hire a punt or rowing boat and spend a relaxing afternoon floating down the River Cherwell taking in Oxford’s famous sights. For the nature lovers out there don’t miss the Oxford Botanic Gardens & Arboretum, a quiet corner of this bustling city.
There is no shortage of art galleries and museums in this historic city where you can spend hours wandering around the Museum of Natural history, Museum of history of Science or for a more contemporary feel visit the Modern Art Oxford gallery.
With its mix of ancient and modern, Oxford has something for everyone. You can shop till you drop at the modern Westgate shopping centre, wander around Oxfords’ narrow lanes with its boutiques and independent shops or visit the historic covered market. Remember to look out for any familiar sights that have been used as a backdrop to many films and TV programmes from the very English Inspector Morse to Harry Potter.
Oxford’s bars and restaurants offer something for everyone. Whether you enjoy a three-course dinner or a tipple in a pub steeped in charm and history you will find a place to suit you. If you are a night owl you can catch the latest blockbuster, book a show or enjoy a night of comedy at one of the many comedy clubs.
Behind the architecture of the world-famous University lies a buzzing city steeped in history, culture and entertainment and is definitely one for the bucket list.
