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.

Another fantastic holiday. So pleased you added this to your range as it was a walk we always wanted to do. Very peaceful walking, beautiful countryside and so much to see.

We have used three different organisers and this is our first venture with you. You have earned the highest accolades of all the organisers, both with respect to responsiveness, information and most particularly with the quality of the accommodations. You shall surely hear from us again and anyone who asks, we will direct your way. It has been a pleasure to work with you, for which I thank you heartily.

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!
