Welcome to Brigantes
Brigantes Walking Holidays and Baggage Courier Service has been used and appreciated by hundreds of walkers and cyclists since 1990, throughout the north of England - the ancient homeland of the Brigantes, the British tribes who occupied the north of England in Roman times.
We continue to pride ourselves on being known for our reliability, which is due to our dedication, being family operated, locally based in the north, and having unsurpassed knowledge of the area in which we operate. Daily we operate throughout the Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Northumberland and the North York Moors National Parks.
Our baggage courier service provides the daily transportation of your baggage along your route from door-to-door, so you will only need to carry a small bag containing your daily requisites. If you wish, at the end your walk, we can return you by minibus to an agreed railway / bus terminal, to your free car park, in Kirkby Malham.
We give painstaking attention to detail in order to provide a superior service to our clients, which is reflected in the fact that over 70% of our business is repeat bookings from satisfied clients. We have built our business on our reputation and it is vital to our future that we continue to do this - so that you remember our name for all the right reasons - Brigantes.
We also provide a package walking holiday for all the above routes, which includes high quality accommodation, daily baggage transfers, and various interesting activities en-route.
All the above walks can be done at a pace to suit your needs in terms of time or walking ability, and you can be assured that your accommodation has been especially selected by us to ensure the highest quality within the price-range.
The support which we provide allows you to successfully complete and enjoy these long distance walks with no hassle, ending each day with some degree of home comfort.
We have also introduced a budget economy package on selected walks, involving the provision of your overnight accommodation using our daily moved trailer tents or caravans (two to four persons) with all food, bedding and equipment provided. This is currently available on the following walks:
Brigantes will not under-quote simply to grab your business. We will listen to you, design your holiday according to your individual requirements and quote for everything we think you need, with additional options available if you wish. We will ensure that you have comfortable accommodation, (all paid for in advance) and a reliable baggage transfer service. You will have no hidden shocks to come as a result of simply having had your accommodation booked on your behalf and leaving you to pay whatever the eventual charge may be.
Through our team of 22 mature, careful drivers, we are able to give you the most cost-effective and reliable service, enabling us to have your bags delivered before you arrive at your destination, a service which is likely to exceed your expectations. This is how we have built our reputation, why the majority of our work comes from repeat business and recommendations from previous clients.
"It's unwise to pay too much but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money and that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was actually bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better" John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
