Completing the Coast to Coast

Coast to Coast

Our colleague Lucy walked the first half of the Coast to Coast path 25 years ago. The route travels right across the north of England through the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors national parks.

Lucy and Eleanor

Back then Lucy and her school friend Eleanor had recently completed their Duke of Edinburgh gold expedition and decided that they wanted a ‘little’ adventure of their own. So off they went from sunny St Bees with incredibly large rucksacks packed with everything they could possibly need for a week’s walking and camping. It was challenging work and Lucy tells us she can still recall the long climb up to Red Pike on the high route. It was more than worth the effort however, as the pair were rewarded with superb views and memories that have remained with them ever since.

Lunch Break

A quarter of a century later, Lucy is heading off tomorrow from Kirkby Stephen to complete the walk. This time however Lucy is doing it Mickledore style and having her luggage transported, is staying in B&Bs, guesthouses and Inns and carrying a much lighter day bag. Along the way, Lucy will gain knowledge of the route as well as get to meet some of our accommodation providers too.

Client Feedback

I have already begun praising you to my friends. Our Hadrian’s Wall walk was just wonderful – beautiful parts of England, fabulous places to stay and excellent planning.  We just loved it. Thanks so very much.

This is the second time we have done this walk and still think it is up there with the best. Once again Mickledore came up with some great accommodation along the way.
