Just a few of the satisfied customers we have supported
I am asked several times how our Walk Support works. Here are some examples of how we supported and went the extra mile during 2019.
Two days into their walk, one of our clients was having problems with footwear. We took details of their shoe size and budget. I visited a well known Outdoor Shop and purchased the replacement footwear which was delivered to their hotel before 10 am the next day.
On another occasion, due to un-seasonal conditions, the weather closed in for one walker, we supplied extra Waterproof gear on the same day. We also offered an experienced walk guide, which was gratefully accepted. The guide led them through snow and poor visibility and they arrived exactly at the correct location with no mishaps.
Two Dutch Clients aborted their walk due to torrential rain and poor visibility. We arranged a point to meet on the trail, we collected them and 2 hours later they were safely in their Hotel.
Two American ladies wanted to walk the Coast to Coast a little bit different we were happy to support them with their plans.
A Group of Americans were walking a Long distance trail, one of the party had an injury so could not walk all of the trail. We reviewed the walk plan daily so they all could enjoy the walking holiday experience
A Walker camping on the Coast to Coast, had problems with their camping stove on the first day . While they started the walk we drove to a nearby Town had the fault rectified and returned the stove ready for use that evening. For the same walker we were happy to collect and deliver Groceries to campsites ready for their arrival. This was especially useful when the campsite was in a remote area.
We dried a tent during the day so it was ready to be used again on the evening .
We have washed and dried clothes and walking gear several times for walkers on the Coast to Coast. (WE DON'T IRON)
All above are examples of how we support our walkers.
We assisted a Very Well Known Walk Company operating a Guided walk (Not our clients.) The guide had a lady take ill during the walk. We acted as back- up for several hours to ensure the lady completed the day's walk.
This is only a snapshot of how we support our clients.
We pride ourselves on the service we provide.
Your safety, well being and enjoying your holiday is our priority.

"I have been away with this company and the organisation and planning is first class.
Mal really has your best interests on safety and enjoyment at heart.
There is no one I would trust above these to have as backup for any walk anywhere."

A Recent client ( who did not wish to be named) summed up
@theweathergoat, after we assisted them on the coast to coast
" A first class service at a budget price"
"I much appreciated your friendly expertise and knowledge, the careful and responsive preparations, your flexibility to meet our needs, the trouble you took to keep us watered, fuelled and comfortable, and the cheerful encouragement. I had confidence in your professionalism and organisation from our very first exchanges.
I will recommend WeatherGoatWalks unhesitatingly to anyone who asks. You delivered an outstanding personalised service at great value for money"!
When asked about the support received from the weathergoats
“they were great!”
I used Mal for my Coast to Coast walk in September and can't recommend him enough . As well as ferrying bags/tent/food etc from stop to stop he can give advice on a day to day walk itinerary based on your ability . Mal will even get your accommodation booked specifically to your budget , which was a big time saver for me . I got useful updates every
morning about the weather ,the route for that particular day, my bags being delivered to next stop and anything of interest on the way . I was camping mostly and cooking myself , and in the areas where shops are scarce, Mal did some shopping for me and delivered it with my bags .I had my tent dried out, and some washing done for me , all in all , above and beyond what you would expect . At the finish of my walk Mal also gave me a lift into Scarborough to the hotel I was booked in to, which was much appreciated , Great service , ta very much !!!

Thank you Mal for your fantastic support, always on time, full of local knowledge, chat and tales and it was so reassuring for us to know that you were on hand 'just in case'! All your pickups, transfers and luggage transportation went like a dream. Brilliant!
Kate and I absolutely recommend Weathergoat's walk support so if you're wishing to plan a walk in the Yorkshire Dales, along the Cleveland Way, Coast to Coast and more besides, it's well worth giving Mal at Weathergoat's a call to help you plan/support your trip!
