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.

Client Feedback

We had the most marvellous time and thoroughly enjoyed our walk along Hadrian’s Wall. Thank you ever so much for arranging it. Virtually everything was perfect. Thank you again for enabling us to conquer the wall.

Both my husband and I enjoyed our hiking holiday very much! We truly had a fabulous time. We found the service provided by Mickledore to be excellent in every way. Everyone we talked to or emailed with was friendly, knowledgeable and quick to respond to our requests. We found the trip to be well planned out and everything flowed smoothly. Our luggage transport was great – no problems. The booklet with each day laid out was excellent – the directions to each B&B were accurate and easy to follow. All necessary information that we needed for the hike, meal planning and transportation were provided. Every guest house or B&B we stayed at was excellent – they were clean, well kept, close to the trail and included excellent breakfasts.The hosts were friendly and helpful. We will definitely use Mickledore again and recommend you to our friends.

This holiday with lodging and luggage transfers was perfect for us – it was the highlight of our 2 week trip – the whole trip was great, but Hadrian’s Wall was a unique adventure for us. Thanks.
