    I have just completed the C2C walk and I feel I must thank you all at Brigantes for making my trip so enjoyable. The accommodation that you booked for me was entirely appropriate for my needs. Each of my hosts went out of their way to ensure that my overnight stay was as comfortable as possible. My bag was delivered to each location well before my arrival and picked up each morning around 9.30, which meant that my breakfast was not disturbed!

    I have now used Brigantes for the last three years for both the C2C and the Pennine Way and I would certainly recommend them for both booking accommodation and transporting luggage between overnight stops. Thank you Annette for all of your help and I am sure I will be in touch in 2019.

    I would like to thank Brigantes for the smooth organisation of my trip, the efficient and invisible baggage transfer and foremost for the very good choice of accomodation. The proprietors always spoke well of Brigantes and how reliable you are. Having said that, I had twelve days of walking with remarkably little rain, coming down only during the second half of my walk, therefore leaving me dry altogether when crossing the Lakes. I had great holidays.

    Just a quick note to thank you for your efficient service to Carole and I while we were doing the Coast to Coast Walk. As we have found on other holidays with Brigantes, you were there when we needed you but we never felt we were being ‘supervised’! Your choice of accommodation for us was excellent and our bags were always waiting for us.
    We had a great time and would have no hesitation in recommending Brigantes to anyone wanting to do the C2C !

    I have just returned to the U.S. after completing my 2nd Round trip of the Coast to Coast Walk (2013 and 2017). Both times Brigantes was very willing to organize all the accommodations for 28/29 nights. They did a fantastic job of finding the perfect fit for me of absolutely lovely places to stay all across the north of England. Wonderful hosts every night whom provided great hospitality, warmth and friendliness. There is no way I mentally could have arranged that many nights without going slightly crazy, but Brigantes quickly came up with the set of assigned locations, which took all the stress away from my brain, and left only the physical work of training, and then actually walking 400 miles in 4 weeks. If, in a couple years, the walking bug strikes me again, and, if England were to be the destination, I would definitely chose to work with them again. Brigantes did a perfect job for me. Thank you

  5. Ann Gaffney says:

    Thank you very much for transporting our bags during our recent C2C walk. Everything went very smoothly!

  6. Anne and Malcolm Veitch says:

    We loved the walk you helped us plan and walk. Everybody we met has been so enthusiastic about their bit of the country and the walk in particular. You have some good hosts. One of Anne’s favourites was Glenda Calvert at Pry House Farm, Keld.

  7. Ken Ward says:

    Just to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our C2C this year (Ingleby Cross to Glaisdale). Many thanks for all your excellent arrangements on our behalf. We would highly recommend Park House and also Blakey Ridge. We’ll be back next year for the final stage.

  8. Sue Butcher says:

    We thought that you might like to know that we successfully completed the C2C, arriving home last Saturday, fit and well without one blister between us. We’d like to thank Brigantes for the wonderful service we received from you.Undertaking the C2C was an absolutely wonderful experience and we enjoyed every minute of it (well, maybe not finding ourselves a few miles along High Street instead of at Kidsty Pike – luckily our only route finding mistake) and would recommend it to anyone wanting a challenge – especially if they have their main luggage carried by a reliable company.

  9. Sarah McDonald and Suzanne Utley says:

    We recently completed the Coast to Coast walk using your booking and baggage transfer services. We we’re very pleased with the organisation, advice and smooth service you provided, it made our trip easy and stress free and we would recommend you to others.

  10. Malcolm Ramsey says:

    Wanted to thank you and all others involved in organising Coast to Coast for John and myself. Everything worked very well, and the Coast to Coast experience was indeed brilliant. Would certainly recommend Brigantes.

  11. Holly Brown-Williams says:

    Just a quick thank you for the wonderful job you all did moving our bags. I can’t imagine at my advanced age carrying all of my gear again, so it’s a miracle to have a service like yours. We highly recommend Brigantes to everyone we meet, including your other services (we met a group using the camping accommodations…brilliant!).

  12. Lyndsey Stokoe says:

    Hard to believe we finished the coast to coast a week ago! Just wanted to thank you for superb organisation, we had a really great time Annette and it was made easy by you all at Brigantes! We started well with the very kind hearted Terry doing a super job of getting us from RBH to Reeth and then our bags and dog food moved seamlessly along the route without us having to worry about it once. The B and Bs you organised for us were all good but some were exceptionally so. All in all an excellent holiday and we cannot wait to do the next one and hope you will be able to help us out again. We want to do some more walking in the Lakes and we fancy the short St Cuthberts Way too, not sure if that is in your area but hope so! It was interesting listening to the other Coasters experiences and we can definitely say we would (and have!)recommend you to anyone, your flexibility, friendliness and care for baggage and customers makes Brigantes a winner in our eyes. Just hoping that the caravan will be back on the road some point as that was our favourite of course!

  13. Kerrie Goodman says:

    I have been meaning to email you and thank you for our holiday back in May. Jane and I had a fabulous time and all our drivers and accommodation were fab. Thank you to Brigantes for such a memorable time.

  14. Nga Vo says:

    I am back in New Zealand after 2.5 months holidays. One of the highlights of the trip is the Coast to Coast Walk – thank you so much for organising all the accommodation, baggage collections and always answer my questions so promptly. I love the walk and have met some really great people.

  15. Niels and Lori Nielsen says:

    Our praying didn’t help much as we had rain most days, but it was a wonderful experience. Thanks for all your organizing, especially as it was last minute, and thanks from Lori for the rides in the baggage train! We enjoyed the second half (mostly in Yorkshire) more, as the people and the environment were more real and down to earth (the Lake District was more commercial) Every evening we had wonderful experiences in B&B’s and pubs, the people, the food and the interesting brews.

  16. David Holloway says:

    Just had to drop you an email to say what a great service you provided. You did what it said on the tin and more. Ok so all our bags went to all the correct destinations – that’s only to be expected. However when one of our number broke her foot but wanted to tag along for the rest of the us walkers your couriers provided a lift with the bags over several days at no extra cost – superb. I cannot recall all the courier’s names but thanks to Stuart, Mark, Bob and all the others, please pass on my regards and thanks. Brigantes seems to be the only business prepared to take on East to West Coast to Coasters so all power to you. This is my second C to C I’ve organised for a group, I do other walks for groups that are usually from one base and I really appreciate the service you provided.
