Sea to Sea

The 144 mile Sea to Sea Cycle Route is probably the most popular and widely known long distance cycle route in Britain. Although the official route starts from the historic port of Whitehaven on the Irish Sea, our holiday starts a little further down the coast at St Bees. The route runs through the Northern Lake District and the Eden Valley before climbing into the hill country of the North Pennines and onto the roof of England with grand views of the Durham Dales. It finishes in Tynemouth, near Newcastle upon Tyne on the North East Coast.

The Sea to Sea is well waymarked and uses a mix of specially constructed cycle paths, off road tracks and minor roads, with the occasional busier road. There are many variations on the route, so you can choose to include some challenging mountain biking or simply stick to roads and cycleways.

It is recommended to cycle this route from west to east, to take advantage of the prevailing wind, but we can offer this route in reverse.

The whole trip was just fantastic, I have recommended it and you to so many people. All we had to think about was the walk each day and what we were going to see. The organisation of it all was faultless and left us to just enjoy it all.
