Once again thank you for your so kind, precise and excellent service.
All luggage transfers and three taxi lifts was perfectly on time
so we had no trouble at any way.
We had a total of 125km, a fantastic 6 days long walk:
two days along the River Thames downstream, starting in Cricklade,
followed by four days of going back, along paths, Kennet&Avon Canal and narrow lanes
throughout North Wessex Downs AONB, and ending in Lacock.
Thank you from all of us for allowing us to have this walking in fully relax.
You also have booked us good weather 'cause we had few rain a morning and an evening only!
All the best and hear you next year!!!

A group of four of us spent a most enjoyable week walking The Ridgeway this summer. We used The Walkers Friend to transfer our luggage and would highly recommend Stuart and his team for the professional and friendly service provided. We look forward to using TWF again on our next trip in the knowledge that our luggage will be safely delivered and waiting for us at the end of each day. Thanks.
The Walkers Friend were fantastic on the British stage of my 2000 miles and 6 month long distance walk from Zurich in Switzerland to John O'Groats in Scotland. What a great experience. Stewart's daily SMS to tell me that my bag had been safely delivered or simply just to to cheer me up when I had a bad walking day, for example in the Pennines, were a great boost.
The only thing I would like to complain about is that he only offer's this service in Great Britain. Unfortunately i had to carry all my stuff the first 750 miles through Switzerland and France.
I was very happy after 2 month to arrive in Land's End and drop off the heavy stuff and what a difference this made. The next 4 month was much faster. I was almost flying.
Thank you very much Stewart. You really became a walkers best friend.
All the best.
We recently used the luggage transfer service provided by Stewart and The Walker's Friend whilst walking The Thames Path for six days.
I highly recommend this service which was executed professionally and without a hitch during our vacation.
Thanks Stewart and team.
A huge thank you to Stewart for the service received over the Easter Bank Holiday when we walked the West Mendip Way from Wells to Weston-Super-Mare. We had a terrific time and were very lucky with the weather, except on the first day but then it was reassuring to know that our bags had arrived at our destination so we knew we could be in dry clean clothes as soon as we arrived! We found Stewart to be very flexible, especially during the arrangements for collection of our bags when the walk took us longer than anticipated which meant he had to hang around for a while waiting for us. Thank you again and no doubt we will be in touch when we plan our next challenge!

We were 6 walkers, very passionate for walking in England. We had a fantastic 6 days/120km walk in the Yorkshire Dales on september, a self planned approx circular way, along waymarked paths and small roads, going from Hebden up to Bainbridge and Muker, and coming back to Hebden through Ribble Way - Sulber, Malham and also the canal towpath Gargrave to Skipton.
Honestly, all this would not be possible and we would not have so much enjoyed the walk and the breathtaking landscape without the friendly and flexible help of Stewart and The Walker's Friend. Luggage transfers all along the way and luggage+people from Muker to Gearstones, and pick ups to/from the airport (at 4 am!) were safe and punctual to the minute. No trouble, no delay. And less expensive than other organizations. So we can strongly recommend The Walker's Friend as a very useful hand for those who love walking in England. We are already looking forward about our next walk with their help, just having to choose the area to visit....
An extremely efficient service from Stewart. Our bags were picked up and dropped off exactly as planned on the Weaver Way walk in Cheshire. As others have said, the daily text confirmation of bags in place before the end of each walking day was most reassuring. We will use the Walker's Friend again.
We used the walkers friend on our walk from Stratford upon Avon to Oxford - part of the Shakespeare Way. Stewart provided an excellent service, contacting us every day. Everything went really smoothly. We are hoping to complete the walk to London next year and will certainly be asking for his help again.
Arranging our four day walk along the South West Coast in Devon / Dorset would have been impossible without the efficient and friendly support of Stewart and his team. Although the initial bookings were made on line, I received immediate email support and a phone call to double check all our arrangements. Great service!
The Walkers Friend provided us with an invaluable service in our off - piste walk across Wales from Offa's Dyke to the coast. Stewart was very helpful and accommodating and the service was totally reliable and also excellent value . We will definitely use them again.
A very good, reliable service. Liked the courtesy texts when bags collected /dropped off. Suggestions for improvements - provision of bag tags rather than us providing our own, plus collection/drop-off itinerary in writing. But would definitely use again as hoping to return to somerset in future.
