Clive Thundercliffe, Berkshire, UK

Once again the holiday was absolutely superb and your choice of accommodation first class. I didn’t realise how good and clean the beaches were in this part of Northumberland. I found the coastline quite special and it was good to have the choice between walking on the beach or the dunes on certain stretches of the trail. I was blessed with dry weather for the first two days, but the first part of Saturday was grim and wet weather gear was essential. I love to come up north for my walks, as you may have gathered, so I don’t expect wall to wall sunshine for days on end. In fact the Northumberland coast boasts quite a dry climate, especially in relation to the west coast, but you are no doubt well aware of that fact in Keswick!! Thank you Mickledore for a great holiday and I am now looking forward to the Cotswold Way walk in September, whilst contemplating the Cumbria Way for next year.
