"..." - Hi Mark. Having just returned home from walking the Saint Oswald's Way I wanted to write and thank you for the fantastic service you provided with our baggage transfer. We had never used a transfer service before and we loved having our bags waiting for us every evening. The fact that we could take extra clothes and toiletries definitely made the whole experience much more enjoyable and comfortable. It seemed almost like magic to arrive at our accommodation each evening and find our luggage waiting for us. It all went without a hitch. Thank you again for everything. I'll be in touch again when we do the Saint Cuthbert's Way.
