Following National Walking Day, a group of inns have rolled out a package combining scenic walks and cosy accomodation.

The Inn Collection Group has once again revealed its Walk Inn Breaks package.

Launched in 2021, the initiative was created to cater for the British passion for both walking and pubs.

The group has pointed out the effectiveness of walking in maintaining health and preventing illnesses like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Long walks are also known to boost moods, increase energy levels and improve sleep quality.

Recognised in the past by Julia Bradbury and Cumbria's celebrity Springer Spaniels Max, Paddy and Harry, the package will run until October across 30 inns in northern England and Wales.

Accompanying dinner on the first night of a two-night bed and breakfast stay, guests are provided with maps of the best nearby walks and trails, courtesy of

Additionally, with breakfast served from 7.30am, guests can kickstart their day with an early morning walk.

With the first brisk mile of the day reportedly burning the same calories as an eight-and-a-half-minute jog, walks are readily accessible directly from the doors of the inns.

Guests checking in with their four-legged friend will have the overnight dog charges waived, making it an ideal stay for all members of the family.

The group’s rooms director, Kate Bentley, said: "Our Walk Inn breaks have been encouraging people to discover new places and scenery that is literally on the doorstep of our inns for three seasons now and we can see that they are as popular as ever.

“We have such a diverse collection of pubs in beautiful locations - whether that’s on the seafront in Northumberland, close to vast moors in North Yorkshire or surrounded by magnificent fells in the Lakes. “One thing they all have in common is their access to an array of walking routes that are suitable for all ages and abilities meaning everyone from the most accomplished hiker to those who enjoy a leisurely stroll.

"With many new inns to enjoy offering new locations to explore, The Inn Collection Group is looking forward to another busy summer through Walk Inn Breaks."
