The Walking Holiday Company

The Walking Holiday Company is owned and run by walking enthusiasts Julie and Nick Thomas, who live in Monmouthshire, on the borders of England and Wales.

Nick and Julie have never taken it for granted that they live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and both enjoy walking in the great outdoors. The couple have spent most of their holidays walking the length and breadth of the UK, mostly on the National Trails of England, Scotland and Wales, each time discovering new highlights and lovely places for walking holidays and accommodation.

Julie has years of experience of arranging walking holidays and has a keen interest in all things ‘out doors’. Health and fitness are high on Julie’s agenda and she would recommend walking as one of the safest and most rewarding forms of exercise. Nick is a keen wildlife and nature photographer and he is also a passionate walker. He can even boast completing the 3 peaks of Snowdon, Scafell and Ben Nevis within 24 hours!

The Walking Holiday Company benefits from their shared keen interest in nature and the environment with years of walking experience. The result is a collection of extremely well organised walking holidays and a high standard of service for other walking enthusiasts to enjoy.

Building on their reputation for quality and a high standard of personal service to walkers from all around the UK and from overseas, The Walking Holiday Company continues to provide an excellent opportunity to enjoy walking holidays along the National Trails and other self guided walks around British Isles.

"Our customers really appreciate our experience, our high standard of service and our close attention to detail. It is this level of commitment that gives us the edge over our competitors. We are committed to providing the best quality choices and we continually research new walking holiday options for our customers. We are proud of our relationship with both our clients and our suppliers, which has been built on continuing trust and respect. And finally we would like to say what a pleasure it is for us to create a holiday for you!"
