  • 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.

Dear Philip. We're back in the US, and while we are happy to be home we are still wallowing in the pleasure of our six days on the Coast to Coast walk. Our thanks to you for everything, especially for getting us to the train on that last day and for sending Mal to meet us after our shattering day into Shap. We were pooped, as they say, and it lifted our spirits wonderfully to have his fine company at the end of that long day and the next morning when he shuttled us to Orton. Please give him our regards and our enthusiastic thanks. We feel privileged to have met both of you and to have been taken care of by such lovely hosts at the guesthouses and inns you arranged--especially Irene and David in St. Bee's and Nigel and Trish in Seatoller. It was a trip we will always remember, and our hope is that we'll have occasion before too long to be in touch again to arrange another visit to Britain. All best to you, and thank you again for everything.
