Coast to Coast

The Coast to Coast walk was created by the famous fell walker and guidebook writer Alfred Wainwright in 1973. Since then the Coast to Coast Path has become one of England’s classic long distance walks. It travels 190 miles, from the sea cliffs of St Bees on the Irish Sea, to the fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Sea. The quality and variety of this walk is recognised internationally, with walkers travelling from around the globe to complete the walk.

As the route traverses the country, the two week journey passes through three National Parks and over a real cross-section of England’s best landscapes. It begins in the Lake District, taking in deep sided valleys, lake shores and remote mountain passes. Next is the limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales, famous for its intricate field patterns and dry stone walls. The old market town of Richmond marks the end of the Dales, before the path crosses the Vale of York and rises over the rolling moorland hills of the North York Moors.

Our Holidays

As well as the whole Coast to Coast Path, we offer the first and the second half as separate holidays. Described as ‘Lakes and Mountains’ and ‘Dales and Moors’, both are well worth undertaking in their own right, or you can choose to do half the route now and the other half later.

When choosing your route, please bear in mind that the actual distance walked on any day may sometimes vary by up to 2 miles/3 km from the quoted distances, depending on the exact location of your accommodation. The mileages shown are typical door to door distances for each day.

The Whole Coast to Coast Path

St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay 194 miles/312 km

We offer 6 holidays covering the whole route. The shorter holiday is an arduous route march in 12 days which is only for the seriously fit. The 17 day trip is a much more leisurely paced experience. Most people spend 14-17 days walking the whole Coast to Coast Path. When making your choice please bear in mind that you are walking day after day for 2 weeks, so don't be over ambitious with your schedule.
