Rural Holiday Specialists Announce New Spring 2013 Walking Break

Leading rural holiday specialists, Alison Howell’s Foot Trails has introduced a new walking break for 2013, specially designed to capture late spring in the English countryside at its very best.


Available in April and early May, A Bluebell Trail uses Foot Trails’ expert local knowledge of South Wiltshire to take guests away from the beaten track and through woodlands and rural landscapes which are alive with a multitude of spring flowers at that time of year. The wild English bluebell lines the route and steals the show, whilst the rare opportunity to see yellow archangels, wild garlic and wood anemone adds to a magical journey through the English countryside.


Walking routes which are easy to follow with Foot Trails’ innovative trail cards, there’s also plenty of time for guests to explore charming English villages along the way and to indulge in a truly authentic rural experience.


Staying in the stylish surroundings of an award winning country inn near Warminister, guests get to relax after a day of rural discovery by putting their feet up and enjoying some excellent country hospitality, with fabulous homemade locally sourced foods, traditional ales and fine wines in abundance.


Prices for this new 3 or 4 night walking break start from £285 per person bed and breakfast, and £365 per person half board (to include a three course dinner each night), and as nature dictates the break can only be available for a short period of time, guests are being urged to book quickly before availability runs out.


Prices include accommodation in an en-suite standard double or twin bedroom (superior upgrades available), breakfast, three course dinners if half board, one complimentary bottle of wine, three or four days of independent walking, tailored itinerary, detailed walk and explore pack, including local Ordnance survey maps with routes clearly annotated (waterproof paper), and Foot Trails’ innovative trail cards, one for each day with written directions, local histories and stories, recommended lunchtime stops and nature guides.
