Live For The Hills Blog
We're excited to confirm that our award winning of range of Peak District tours are available to book now on our brand new booking platform, including a brand new Peak District adventure which has been selected as part of the National Park Experiences. Our new tour will help you discover that "On Top Of The World" feeling. Especially with the peace of mind of our risk-free booking process, which includes the option of a 100% refund in the event that your tour cannot go ahead.
As the end of lockdown finally approaches, we've been busy behind the scenes to ensure that we're ready to hit the ground running and welcome visitors to the peace and tranquility, dramatic landscapes and inspiring history, of the Peak District national park.
Our website has undergone a bit of a transformation - and we've even got a brand new logo. Alongside this, we're proud to introduce our brand new, automated booking system, courtesy of Beyonk. Each of our tours can be booked instantly via the secure booking platform, but we're here to answer your emails if you would like to enquire about anything that you can't find on the site.
You might notice that we have reduced the size of the groups from 7 to 4 on the booking platform. This is because we will soon be switching to providing our tours in electric vehicles. We can still offer tours for larger groups, but please contact us to discuss exactly what you need and we will try and help.
We'll have more news on the switch to electric soon, so keep watching this space, or sign up to our newsletter for more information.
On Top Of The World
Our latest tour is called "On Top Of The World". It was designed as part of the National Park Experiences, which is a national collection of unique experiences set in English National Parks. It's the second of our tours to have been included in the collection, alongside the (strangely topical!) Plague Village & The Peaks tour.
The aim of On Top Of The World is to give our guests the chance to enjoy as many of the best viewpoints in the Peak District as possible within one day, all without long and strenuous hikes. A combination of short, manageable walks and scenic drives along the "secret" back roads of the national park will allow us to enjoy some stunning views and landscapes. It's hard to believe that this scenery is so close to the bustling cities of Sheffield and Manchester.
Like all of our tours, On Top Of The World is suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness. Many of the views can be enjoyed without straying too far from the vehicle, whilst others can include a short walk along footpaths. For those who can't manage the short walks to the viewpoints, they can enjoy a 360° "virtual tour" of the scenery from the comfort of the vehicle.
We know that we have all been through uncertain times during the various lockdown restrictions. We felt that it was important to offer our customers the reassurance that any tour bookings made with us include the opportunity for a 100% refund in the event that the tour cannot proceed as planned.
Safety and the well being of our customers is our highest priority, and we ask you not to travel if anybody in your group is required to self-isolate or experiences symptoms associated with Covid. All of our tours are private bookings for your own particular group and the vehicle is sanitised between tours.
Pride & Prejudice Update...
Lots of people have been asking about when our popular Pride & Prejudice Tours can recommence. These tours are a little bit more tricky as they involve properties such as Chatsworth House, Lyme Park, Haddon Hall and Sudbury Hall (or 3 Pemberleys and a Lambton Inn, if you prefer!). As soon as these properties have confirmed their re-opening dates, we will update the availability for these tours. At the moment, we have put a date of June 1st on our booking platform, but we may be able to bring this forward nearer to the time. If you would like to be kept informed, on these tours or anything else, please get in touch or sign up for our newsletter.
We can't wait to welcome you back to the Peak District.
