Cornwall - 2014
The SABRE walks programme has a choice of two or three led walks each week in Surrey and South East England. Typically we have around 16 or more people on each walk, come rain or shine. In our programme you'll find everything from short easy strolls up to energetic 12 mile hikes. We organise social events and walking mini-breaks around the UK and abroad.
Lunch in the sunshine
