The Hog's Head Inn laces up its boots with new Walk Inn breaks
The Hog's Head Inn is lacing up its boots to go a step further for walkers with a new range of walking breaks.
The Hog's Head Inn has paired up with self guided walking publisher, Walking-Books.com to offer new ‘Walk-Inn’ breaks with easy-to-follow, self-guided walks, key meals and accommodation at our inn, close to well-loved destinations like the Simonside and Cheviot Hills, Heart of Northumberland, Northumberland coast and Scottish Borders.
Great for walkers of all levels including families, relaxed ramblers and serious yompers, the breaks include Walking-Books’ self-guided packs, each containing 20 classic walks around the inn.
Also included is a hearty, two-course dinner for you to walk off, plus a comfy room to bed down in and, of course, a full English breakfast to fuel you up for the day ahead. Packages also include a welcome drink on arrival plus a picnic to enjoy while on the go.
Gary Turner, general manager at The Hog's Head Inn, said: "We have always been a popular place for walkers, due to our great central location in Northumberland, making coastal, hill and countryside walks easily accessible and because we are open all day, every day. We wanted to go a step further to encourage people to come and experience the fantastic walking country around us with self walking guides to help them make the most of their stay.”
Walking Books director Mike Law said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with The Hog's Head Inn and applaud their efforts to make walking accessible to as many people as possible. I hope that together we can inspire people of all walking abilities to head out and enjoy the fantastic scenery around the inn on foot.
“Walking Books guides are completely different to anything you will see in the shops. Our aim when deciding to publish our guides is to make them as user-friendly as possible so we decided on our concept of putting the walks on handy, durable, weather-proof walking cards with a unique combination of concise, easy-to-follow routes local information and professional mapping. To complete our pack we added a useful user guide and decided to provide a custom made map-case for the walking card which meant the walker had everything they needed for their walk on an A5 weather-proof card that could be carried conveniently around the neck or in a jacket pocket.”
