Hadrian's Wall. April 2017 by Jane from Sutton Coldfield

A stress free and thoroughly enjoyable week.

"Everything ran like clockwork. The information provided was excellent and we really enjoyed the interesting variety of accomodation. Many people we spoke to recommended doing the walk West to East, but we enjoyed finishing in Bowness, despite the more limited travel options and unfavourable wind direction!"



Hadrian’s Wall. September 2016 by Juliet from Didsbury

“Thanks for your help in providing us with a really enjoyable and memorable holiday. I've already recommended you to someone who may book with you next year.”

Coast to Coast path. September 2016 by Joe & Deirdre from Leigh

“We had a great time though the wind on Kidsty Pike knocked Deirdre over a couple of times and the horizontal rain was too much for our waterproofs. One of the best parts of the holiday was meeting the same people each day/at the end of each day and comparing notes! Karen was most helpful in the preparation and all the supplies were useful.”

Ravenber Way. September 2016 by Charles from Deer Isle, Maine

“The Ravenber Way is not for a first time long distance walker. Over half of the route consists of a knitting together of public footpaths, often through countryside, moor and forest where the track is ill defined or invisible. Of all the walks we have done, this had the least people. Many days on the moors and in forests we saw only 1-2 people all day. The solitude amidst the beauty of the countryside is amazing, considering the walk is in such a populous nation.”

Pennine Way. August 2016 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.”

Tour of the Lake District. August 2016 by Ann from Windermere, Florida

“What a wonderful trip! You guys did a great job and the hiking was so beautiful, the food excellent and the hotels charming. Great choices!”

Cumbria Way. July 2016 by Sophie & Ruben from Antwerp

"Just a quick note to let you know that Ruben and I were very happy about our trip. We really had a wonderful time! Thank you very much for everything!"

Dales Way. July 2016 by Andrew & Pauline from Epsom

"Great holiday. Your attention to details (laminated accommodation and diversion details) great, the ease of contact, lack of any hassle and total package brilliant. Would both use and recommend your services any time on any walk (with or without dog)"

Pennine Journey. June 2016 by Marion, Jess, Jane and Margaret from Hitchin

"Very efficient from quote to information pack. Thank you for all your assistance during the walk. Will most definitely use you again."

Ravenber Way. June 2016 by Peter & Clare from Westbury

"We have been very impressed with your overall efficiency from the very beginning, in particular with your choice of accommodation. It was all well up to standard"

Lake District North West. May 2016 by Deborah & John from Victoria, BC

"It was nice to contact the owners directly before booking and receive an honest review of the tours, which helped us choose the right trek for us. We also appreciated Pete meeting us on our first night with suggestions for our tour and local advice."

Lake District North West. May 2016 by Isobel from London

"Really appreciated thoughtful and well written walk options. Looking forward to your recommendation for next year!"

Hadrian's Wall. May 2016 by Rosalind and Doreen from Solihull (to the question, 'Would you book with Wandering Aengus Treks again?')

"Without a doubt – wonderful company – so organised and helpful when booking and the detail was first class. Accommodation great and perfect locations as well. Amazing experience and as they say We'll be back!!!!"

Lake District North East. May 2016 by Ivar and Sverre from Trondheim, Norway

"We are very satisfied with everything: the information before arrival, the information on arrival in Keswick and meeting Pete at Greystones, the accommodation and hospitality, and the beautiful Lake District".

Lake District South Circuit. May 2016 by Gaby from Wivenhoe, Essex

" I am just writing this (in the car on the way home!) to say thank you for organising such a brilliant and beautifully organised trip. We were all so impressed with each hotel and everything ran like clockwork. Everyone was so welcoming. Our information packs were beautifully put together and so well thought out and the walks were different everyday. We recommended your company to all people we met along the way ( but most of the time we had the fells to ourselves) We are reluctantly heading home but will certainly book another! Thank you again."

Reivers Way. May 2016 by Ann and Sally from Cambridge (to the question, 'Would you book with Wandering Aengus Treks again?')

"A whole hearted yes! We hope to come back to you next year for the Ravenber Way"

Lake District North West. May 2016 by Catherine from London

"We are all very impressed by your attention to detail and standard of information provided overall. With your pack in hand we were well-supported and able to concentrate on our walking holiday without worrying about the arrangements. Thank you."

Cumbria Way. April 2016 by Sandra, Nicky and Lesley from Huntingdon

"The information provided from Wandering Aengus was excellent, including the diversionary routes owing to the December floods. Although I realise you have no control over this element – the waymarking on the route was very poor, in some cases incorrect or just missing completely and on arrival in Carlisle there was no marker on the cross on the Market Square to say that you had completed the Cumbrian Way. Thank you once again for a wonderful holiday - we had a really memorable time together with lots of challenges for all! I am sure we will be contacting you again!"

Lakeland Walker. April 2016 by Richard and Ann from Stoke Gifford, Bristol

"Walks tailored very well to capabilities. Continued the second walk down to the water and caught the boat back. Being dropped off at the furthest point and walking back to base worked extremely well."

Cleveland Way. 2015 by Marily from Pittsburgh, PA

"Karen and Pete booked good quality accommodation and baggage transfer for our 9-day Cleveland Way trip. The trip went like clockwork – all logistics were handled exceptionally well – leaving us to enjoy our walks on the moors and by the sea. Karen even rebooked us into an alternate lodging for one night when she learned one of our lodgings was to have live music playing late. We were thrilled to get that kind of personal care from Wandering Aengus".

Hadrian's Wall. 2015 by Robert from Bracknell

"What can I say. Craig and I really enjoyed our week doing Hadrian's Wall. Everything went very smoothly thanks to your help. As I have said on the attached feedback form one excellent tip that we picked up on was that some people stayed for 2 nights in Carlisle and got the bus to Bowness and walked back which put them in Carlisle early on the travel day. Unfortunately we forgot to get Craig a T shirt but will pick one up from somewhere. I suspect that we will be coming back to you in a couple of years to sort out another walk for us. Again, many thanks for taking the strain".

Lake District North West. 2015 by John & Marcia from Volcano, Hawaii

"We appreciate the choice of routes with a shorter, easier one and a more challenging option I am sure the longer options are magnificent, but being of a certain age, we took the easier route each time. Other walking holidays have longer days, typically 10-12 miles or even more, with little choice to shorten them. This would have been too much for us. I was so happy to find Wandering Aengus".

Cumbria Way. 2015 by Doerthe and Anette from Croft, Cheshire

"Excellent – sometimes there was a distinct lack of signs, so the descriptions were very useful, and your little ‘cards' for the accommodation were also great."

Coast to Coast. 2015 by Gladys, Fiona, Sally, Cathy, Wilma, Irene, and Fiona from Aberdeen (to the question, 'Would you book with Wandering Aengus Treks again?')

"Yes we would and will also recommend you to any friends who are considering doing something similar. This was a more challenging walk than we had anticipated but very satisfying. It was good to use the book in conjunction with the map as there are some areas with limited waymarks"

Lake District South. 2015 by Philip from Dartford, Kent

"Thank you for an excellent holiday. All the accommodation was clean comfortably and well furnished. We all said how nice it was to try different types of accommodation each night. All the arrangements from start to finish could not have been better. I work in a customer facing industry were customers have to be extremely satisfied and I have to say using your company for the first time I am EXTREMLY SATISFIED".

Cleveland Way. 2015 by Ran from Tel Aviv, Israel

"We would like to thank you for your help in planning and booking our holiday, which was a total success, full of pleasurable walks in outstanding surroundings. Even the weather proved to have been on our side - not a single drop of rain while walking and, the only really cool and grey day was when crossing the moors, which only added to the atmosphere! Special thanks for all the e-mailing while preparing for the holiday, for your help and patience.
