Our Team


Iain - Walkfree Breakfree Founder

Welcome to Walkfree Breakfree and thank you for taking the time to browse our website and I do look forward to helping you to discover and explore inspirational places and to enjoy many walks with us.

During my thirty year university career as a volunteer it was my pleasure to organise and lead staff and student groups on walks throughout the UK and further afield and I am a qualified Mountain Leader (ML Summer).  I have developed Walkfree Breakfree as I believe a business founded on the ethos of a university outdoor club has much to offer including the friendships, lasting memories and fun that can be enjoyed by one and all.

As a very experienced and qualified walking group organiser I seek to share my passion and enthusiasm for the outdoors with you, and look forward to motivating and inspiring you on our walks, tours and holidays.

Together with our team of expert walk leaders, I look forward to seeing you on our walks soon.

Having helped in the initial start up phase of Walkfree Breakfree, we are delighted to have Tommo back for a short period as Walkfree Breakfree develops our Chilterns and Group holiday offers. 

Tommo enjoys the outdoors and is an especially keen skier and cyclist. During his six months at Walkfree Breakfree he is working on our marketing strategy, operations and developing various parts of our business.

David Howlett - Walk Leader 

I grew up in the beautiful Chess Valley, Buckinghamshire, and know the county intimately, having walked and cycled the paths and byways of the lush, rolling Bucks countryside since I was a boy.

My main hobby these days is walking and for many years I have led groups all over the UK as well as to France, Germany and Spain. My passion is exploring new destinations and introducing people to the joys of walking, in the strong belief that it is the best possible way to keep fit and healthy, with the added bonus of discovering our glorious countryside and making new friends along the way.


John Bass - Walk Leader

Walking is a wonderful experience and Britain is packed full of amazing landscapes with rich geological and metrological flavours. I love discovery and exploration and encouraging others to enjoy fabulous outdoor experiences. Walking in a group adds an amazing dimension to any day spent out walking. For me as a walk leader it is a real pleasure seeing individuals achieve objectives and enjoying a journey otherwise perhaps unachievable. Whether sharing a blue sky summit or lazy summer’s trail in the beautiful Chilterns our home base.
