  • Most accommodation in Britain is charged on a Per Person basis (rather than per room basis). The price you see here for this tour is the Price per Person.
  • If you request a Twin Room there are two single beds (usually 3 feet wide) in the room.
  • If you request a Double Room there is one bed in which two people usually sleep (usually 4 feet 6inches wide).
  • Both the Double and the the Twin room are sometimes available for Single Occupancy (one person in the room), usually with a supplement to compensate the provider who would normally have received payment from two people.
  • If the accommodation offers Single rooms (one bed of 3 feet wide), this will normally be priced higher than half of a double or twin room. Unless space is limited in the village or accommodation we usually avoid these as the rooms tend to be older and less space to move about.

This is Jennifer who went from Upway to Bournemouth last month on a walking tour with her nephew. I just want to thank you for a fantastic vacation. Everything was perfect!

Our favorite places were Upway at the Manor House. Helen and her husband were so gracious and absolutely on top of everything. She made our lunches for hiking and did our laundry. She and her husband picked us up everywhere as scheduled. Our room was fine and the breakfast room was gorgeous.

Our other favorite place was the Ammonite Guest House in Corfe Castle. What an incredible place! Yvonne made us feel so welcome and breakfast at her table in her dining room was so special to us. We felt like part of a family - not the usual tourist experience.

The maps and other information and tickets you arranged were excellent and made for a trip where we could concentrate on the beautiful sites. They were beautiful, indeed - like a picture postcard!!

I really want to praise the Corfe Castle taxi service and their associates. They were wonderful. You made a good choice in picking them to get your guests around and about.

You may want to warn your guests there are some mean cows on the path to Swanage. Haha!

In short, thank you. You are welcome here in Utah anytime.
