Pennine Way. May 2019 by Doug and Ruth from Macclesfield

Brilliant experience all round, made possible by Wandering Aengus.

"Our first such self-guided trek in the UK, and it proved a brilliant experience. Using WA to deal with the nightmare of finding and booking accommodation was a great choice. They did this super-efficiently, referring back to us with the occasional query, leaving us to concentrate on the walking. Baggage transfer also removed the grind of carrying heavy packs on what is already a demanding walk. Many thanks Karen and Pete - we had a great time."


Pennine Way. April-May 2019 by Neil from Oxford

Up and down on the trail, but not off it!

"I spent three weeks over Easter walking the whole of the Pennine Way, from Edale through to Kirk Yetholm, which was my first trip with WA. What stood out over the trip was the personal touch that WA could provide, and the way that they responded to a few accommodation and transfer challenges (the causes of which were all out of their hands) over the first week. The accommodation was excellent throughout the trip - and after the first day, they even arranged for the rain to stay away. Thank you Pete and Karen!"


Pennine Way. June 2018 by Marshall from Warren, RI, USA

Wonderful but hot!

"I have worked with other firms that arrange self-guided trips and they were competent and professional. But Wandering Aengus is head and shoulders above the rest. I wound up requesting several changes to a bespoke trip and WAT responded cheerfully and helpfully and never missed a beat. Early on, I noted that a train journey from Penrith to London looked pricey at 106 pounds. When those tickets went briefly on sale for 30 pounds, WAT notified me so that my wife and I were able to save 152 pounds in train travel. Next time we walk anywhere that WAT covers, WAT is going to be our first choice. In addition to all that, their charges were a bit less than their competitors. Tip top service for less money! From what I have seen, you cannot go wrong with WAT."


Pennine Way. July 2017 by Judy from Victoria

We have used Wandering Aengus before and found the attention to detail very reassuring.

"Longer days than anticipated on a couple of days in particular we were finding some of the paths rocky and unstable thus it took longer to complete that section. Eg Cam high road. Views however were worth it!"


Pennine Way by Mark from Hinkley

“From your almost immediate answer to my initial enquiry WA provided everything I needed to complete my attempt at the Pennine Way Communications with WA was easy and you provided regular updates when any changes occurred.”

Pennine Way map
Although the Pennine Way keeps generally to the hills and moors, you also pass through several villages and towns along the way and as much of interest as the ever-changing natural scenery, is the variation in community reflected in architecture, custom and dialect on this great northward journey along the Pennine spine of England. The walking on the Pennine Way is nowhere very difficult, but two hundred and fifty odd miles is a long way and the completion of the whole Pennine Way is a real and enjoyable challenge.
