    BTW I cannot recommend The George Inn and the Sportsman Inn highly enough…both landlords real characters!!!

    We walked the Dales Way in May 2017, finishing only five days ago. We walked over six days. Brigantes were fantastic…every day our bags were at the Inn/BnB where we had booked in. Thoroughly recommend this courier service and many many thanks to Annette and her team.
    This was our first long distance walk BTW and it was great…exhausting but really good and we had some HOT weather to contend with!

    We used Brigantes on the Dales Way Walk in May this year, they were fantastic and our two cases arrived safely each day. At the price they charge it really is not worth back-packing, it makes the holiday and walk so much more enjoyable. We stayed in some fabulous places including Cambridge House in Windermere, Lakeland Hills in Burneside and Mrs Kitching in Hebden. It’s a glorious walk and not strenuous compared to some others. We even booked the sun most of the week and counted 34 different species of bird.

    Two of us set off to do the Dalesway with full packs intending to do a mixture of camping and B&Bing. Ilkley to Grassington was 23 degrees and completely drained us. The Foresters Arms and Brigantes to the rescue! Replaced the full packs with daypacks at The Mountaineer in Grassington and set off again. Arriived in Beckermonds relatively fresh for a pair of unfit hikers and our packs were there waiting for us. The same in Dent and again in Staveley, and as we now had our “walking legs” and energy left, carried ful load into Bowness and up to Windermere station.
    Having now experienced the Dalesway, I would definitely recommend using Brigantes as the trek is too nice to be spoiled by carrying too much and worrying about your agenda.

    Hello Annette, With the aid of an ibuprofen or two, tiger balm on the old knees and a couple of walking poles each, these two old wrinklies managed to complete and enjoy the walk despite the weather throwing everything it could at us. Snow, rain, mist and soggy boggy tracks.
    Thank you to you and your team for organising the walk. It was terrific. The accommodation even better than the walk twelve or so years ago.
    When we arrived at our destination wet through, we had no problem drying out.
    Our two nights at Garsdale Head with a pick up from Sedbergh plus return gave us a day off and ride on the Settle – Carlisle railway(an added bonus)
    We had hotel upgrades and even a four poster bed with a decanter of sherry in our room on our final night at Bowness. We were very bad and didn’t heed the flood diversion notices and actually had no problems.
    Thank you again for a very pleasant and satisfying walk.
    Gordon & Cathie Wood
