Staying in one place / short walking breaks

With a Foot Trail Staying in One place walking trip you’ll have one base throughout your trip and yet enjoy a completely different and varied walk every day.

Staying in One Place is ideal for short breaks, of three or four nights. You can also combine a couple of different areas if you wish and stay for three or four nights in each of those.

About our short walking breaks

A short walking break is a ‘stay in one place’ trail based in one central inn from which you can enjoy a different walk each day. You will typically stay for 3 or 4 nights in one of our our hand picked country inns.
