Sea to Sea

The Sea to Sea is the classic, long distance cycle route in the UK. Starting from the historic port of Whitehaven on the Irish Sea (we use St Bees) and finishing in Tynemouth on the north east coast. The route passes through the Lake District, Eden Valley and the Pennines, all offering fantastic scenery.

This route is well waymarked and uses a mix of specially constructed cycle paths, off road tracks and minor roads, with the occasional busier road.

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

We have a range of full Sea to Sea holidays from 2, 3, 4 or 5 day options. Make your choice depending on your available time and pace you find most comfortable.

This was a fabulous holiday and experience for me that I will remember always. The planning, preparation and knowledge of the Coast to Coast that Mickledore have was the primary reason for the venture being such a success. You clearly have a great portfolio of hosts who enjoy delivering genuine hospitality. The facilities were also a far cry from the brands that are such a part of modern life and that was perfect for me.

It was one of our best ever holidays – such fun, even with some rain. I like/value the fact that if we didn’t make it down to the B&B, someone would be looking for us! Many thanks!
