Meet our team
Welcome to Team Foot Trails, we’re pleased to meet you!
We’re proud to be a small company with a big heart, sharing our love of rural England.
Alison founded Foot Trails in 2002. Now she walks and checks the trail routes, explores accommodation for our guests and helps to tell our story. Alison always feels inspired and motivated by reading the amazing comments and feedback from our guests.
Manager and Trail Creator
David uses his local knowledge and love for hiking to support Team Foot Trails with all they need to look after our guests. He researches and writes all our walks, celebrating the beauty of rural England and nature with others.
Alastair responds to your enquiries, and then plans and creates the custom itineraries for our guests. When doing so, he loves to think about each walk and how special they will be. Alastair loves to spend quality time outdoors with his family, and a good DIY project!
Production and Administration Assistant
Deborah prepares the information that’s included in our Walk & Explore Boxes, and books the guests’ accommodation. She’s inspired by the beautiful villages, inns and countryside of South West England. An ideal day for Deborah would be blue skies, fluffy white clouds, sunshine and being by the sea!
Suzy makes each trip a reality, dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. She also looks after the guests as they get ready for arrival, helping people to see the land we see each day. Animals, gardening, walking and making tapestry are some of the many things that make Suzy happy, preferably accompanied with some biscuits and cake!
Maggie has grown up with Foot Trails, exploring the British countryside with her parents Alison and David. She helps to tell our story, sharing words and pictures for our guests to enjoy. Maggie loves days full of adventure and sunshine, with a pub drink at the end!
Website designer and support
Sarah worked with us to create the Foot Trails website, making sure that it was clear and easy to use for our visitors. She now supports us with the everyday running of the website. Sarah runs her own design business and enjoys working with growing businesses to make the most of their online presence.
Molly our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is our Team Mascot. She’s a pretty amazing companion on our recce trails and always up for a cuddle!
