The Cleveland Way offers the walker the best of 2 worlds.....peaceful days in the countryside and atop the moors to bustling seaside coastal paths. Travelling from Canada we are truely amazed by the ease of travel outside the bigger cities. To get to our starting point we flew to Manchester......a train right at the airport to York.....and a bus 1 block away to Helmsley .....and a one block walk to our guesthouse. Very smooth and the locals were very helpful. We stopped for just a moment in York to check our map and a busy businessman stopped to offer assstnace.
All of our accommodations were wonderful. Hundreds use this trail every year and the hosts we stayed with understood that we may be wet and muddy......and wet boots were always returned dry and ready for the next day.
The path travels thru peaceful and quiet landscapes ......the moors are amazing. Then you get to the coast and the scenery changes to busy villages and many day hikers.....all interesting to talk to.
Great variety on this hike......nice blend of England.
Mickeldore has never let us down. Their website is wonderful......great information about the walk and helpful in deciding what is the right option for you. Booking online also easy to do. We phoned the company to pay the deposit and then the final payment ....you can avoid the credit card charges by doing this....thanks for that option. The other option we appreciate is the booking of prepaid packed lunches......and they were all wonderful.
The staff has always been quick in replying to our e-mails and when on the phone have been very helpful and friendly. We had one question while on the walk and an e-mail back and forth answered our concerns.....and within hours. Thanks.
Our packages arrived very quickly after final payment.....the maps and book were the best.
Our accommodations were super.....a real mix of hotel, guesthouse and B&B. Sometimes we thought they were closer ones .....always wondering why we kept walking.....but after the stay in these marvellous places we were glad for the extra steps. Never disappointed.
Highly recommend using our favourite operator.
