Q. How do I book a holiday

A. i) Ring or send an email enquiry with details of your holiday dates and preferred itinerary (we can offer advice regards the most suitable walk if you require it).
    ii) We will then prepare an itinerary with details of accommodation for your approval.
    iii) Once you have agreed this we will ask for a deposit and go ahead and book your accommodation (if you are booking at short notice there may be some changes to the accommodation at this stage, but we will come back and check with you if this happens)
    iv) 8 weeks before the date of the holiday we will ask for the outstanding balance.

For full details see 'Booking information'

Q.  What should I bring?

A.  A comfortable pair of broken in  walking boots, a good waterproof coat and trousers (although the sun does shine a lot, it can sometimes rain in Cornwall).  A small day rucksack, suncream and maybe a sun hat (you are going to be outside a lot).  Blister plasters (band aids), several pairs of walking socks, a camera, a few good small snacks (there will be times when you need a bit of an energy boost). A mobile phone.

Q.  How fit do I have to be?

A.  Our walks are planned for the reasonably regular walker.  The coastal path and Cornwall in general is quite hilly so distances proposed on the path per day may sound short but usually seem further.  You can specify extra rest days at various parts of the walk and/or the daily distances can often be adjusted depending slightly on the accommodation available.

Q.  What extras do I have to pay.

A.  Our holidays include overnight accommodation, breakfast, luggage transfers, maps and guide notes.  Extras will include lunch and your evening meals.  Commercial ferry crossings.  Travel to the start and from the finish of your walk

Q.  What if something goes wrong?

A.  Ring our phone number and we can help sort out any problems that may have arisen.

Q.  How can I pay for my holiday

A.  We can accept sterling cheques, bank transfers and paypal payments (these attract a 3% premium due to charges).  We are now recommending overseas payments use Transferwise as this is a far cheaper way to transfer money than using a bank.  How to make your First Transferwise Payment
