About Walkfree Breakfree Ltd
The business I founded Walkfree Breakfree emerged from a successful University outdoor group where I organised and led student and staff on outdoor trips throughout the UK and at times beyond. I am proud of the ethos this gives to my company.
Our business is about delivering walking short breaks and holidays to encourage you into and to enjoy that wonderful land of ours outdoors.
But it is more than that, we seek to positively encourage participation, community, interaction and friendships by delivering a group style of service to all, for singles, couples and of course groups of all kinds. To develop whenever we can offers that appeal to one and all, to differing ages, gender and ethnicity – bringing our university ethos alive outdoors.
For us outdoor activities are best enjoyed as a group, in our view it’s more fun and leaves you with memories that inspire and last, it is this wonderful interaction that we love and wish to share with you in beautiful and inspirational places.
Our very name Walkfree Breakfree is intended to encourage you to shake off your shackles; we truly want you outdoors, to be active and stress free, enjoying our wonderful landscapes in the company of others. Encouraging inspirational togetherness, in our magical English countryside, in our home base in the beautiful Chilterns or in other magical locations our beautiful isles can offer. Strolling across green fields or forests deep, on coast or mountains high, along streams and mighty rivers sparkling bright, past ancient stones standing proud, to hamlets quaint, to breath in the fresh air, enjoy the sounds and see wildlife at work or play that is what Walkfree Breakfree is about.
The Chilterns so close to London yet far from the madding crowds, with its small and delicate fields and golden beech woods, its quaint hamlets, flint cottages, small and beautiful churches, drovers trails, and tales of old. Above all, one of the finest and most extensive footpath networks you will find anywhere in the UK and it offers four seasons walking for all. On its boundaries, the winding river Thames, the royal and mighty castle of Windsor and ancient university town of Oxford.
Our style of service does really get people together effectively, including those who have not met previously as we seek to deliver a “club” style ambience, but one without the membership fees. We seek to encouraging participants to return, to meet again together as clubs do. This is a very different approach to traditional walking businesses that tend to market the same venues to different walkers time and time again.
Our walks are usually guided but if you want to do your own thing, go for an independent walk or just chill out and relax then just please do so.
The length, type (linear or circular) and level vary according to offer and location. But on all our holidays the objective is to deliver an inclusive package with fixed price so you just need to turn up equipped with suitable outdoor clothing for a relaxing, hassle free short break or holiday.
To get you outdoors, to change your views, time and time again, exploration, discovery, places new and companionship, that totally inspires me, do join us when you can.
