St. Oswald’s Way – A Stunning Journey through Northumberland

We’re very pleased to have added St Oswald’s Way to out walks in Northern England. With dramatic moorland, a sweeping coast, magnificent beach-side castles and a rich variety of wildlife, it is well worth exploring.
Starting on Lindisfarne…
If you’ve never been to Holy Island, you are missing a very special place. It is where our route starts, near the wonderful abbey, and crossing the tidal causeway.
…along one of the finest coastlines you’ll find anywhere..
Noted for it’s pristine cleanliness, it remains remarkably deserted … which perhaps wasn’t quite the case when Bamburgh Castle was beseiged in 1095.
…staying in quiet fishing villages…
Along St. Oswald’s Way, the ‘resting and re-fueling’ is as much a part of your holiday as the walking. We specialise in finding ‘the hidden gems’ – the best places to stay along our walking routes. Every B&B, inn or farmhouse we use is hand-picked and constantly evaluated, by our guests as well as ourselves.
…crossing dramatic moorland…
It isn’t just coastal Northumberland which makes it special – this route takes you into some remote countryside, through forests and along the gorgeous River Coquet to the ancient town of Rothbury.
….before ending at Hadrian’s Wall
With an iconic starting-point on Holy Island, St. Oswald’s Way finally ends at the World Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall.

Any issues were not down to Mickledore. Everything else ran 100% like clockwork. Very confident in this company (despite my initial apprehension) and will definitely use again and recommend. Our first walking holiday – very happily surprised! As a first time customer it was a fantastic experience, we loved every minute. Already looking at booking again next year – Thank You.
