We're always looking for ways to give back to the community, therefore actively take part in several schemes dedicated to helping either families or the wider walking community. We also have plans to drive sustainability throughout the organisation and actively offset travel carbon emissions and promote sustainable tourism.

Find out more about our donations and goodwill schemes below, or see the great work our Pathways Fund does in maintaining and preserving the countryside where we walk. 

Feel Good Breaks

As the UK’s largest walking and leisure activity holiday organisation, HF Holidays has a responsibility to encourage as many people as possible to engage with the great outdoors.

Working in partnership with the Family Holiday Association, we're delighted to have hosted to date 10 Feel Good Break at HF Holidays' UK country houses.

Feel Good Breaks are designed to reward ordinary working families who would not otherwise afford it, with the gift of a break away in the outdoors and the opportunity to discover the British countryside as a family. To date over 150 families from Rotherham, Sheffield, Oxford, Coventry and Glasgow have enjoyed a weekend of guided walks following referral from the Family Holiday Association.

In 2019 we hosted families on a Feel Good Break in the Brecon Beacons. Unfortunately in 2020 and 2021, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we were unable to host any Feel Good Breaks. 

For 2022, we do have a Feel Good Break planned for February half term.


Assisted Holidays


Supported by a nomination from an HF Holidays member, the Pathways Fund can be used to provide a UK holiday in suitable cases where, because of difficult personal circumstances, the normal holiday price is beyond the means of those would benefit from taking part. Such Assisted Holidays of up to one week long can be wholly or partly funded, subject to approval. 

If you are an HF Holidays member and know of a deserving family who would appreciate the social activities and time in the great outdoors that can be enjoyed from one of our 18 country houses, please download, print and complete the below application form and send it the address shown on the form.

HF Holidays supports a range of projects helping to protect our environment and improving access to the countryside for future generations to enjoy. We have always been committed to acting as a responsible operator, and community is at the heart of everything we do.

Bringing people together through memorable holidays in the UK and around the world is what we do. We recognise that action is needed to protect and preserve the destinations we visit. We want to lead the way in developing holidays that are truly sustainable.

Each year we donate to a number of organisations including Mountain Rescue teams, the Ramblers, and Air Ambulances.

Supporting Mental Health Foundation

Our Nominated Chairty

In addition to our Pathways Fund, we also have a nominated charity that was chosen by members of our team. We're currently supporting Mental Health Foundation, who offer advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. This great cause really resonated with our office teams.
