Northumberland Coast Path

The Northumberland Coast is best known for its sweeping beaches, imposing castles, rolling dunes, high rocky cliffs and isolated islands. Amidst this striking landscape is the evidence of an area steeped in history, covering 7000 years of human activity. A host of conservation sites, including two National Nature Reserves testify to the great variety of wildlife and habitats also found on the coast.

The 64miles / 103km route follows the coast in most places with an inland detour between Belford and Holy Island. Most of the paths are public rights of way (footpaths and bridleways), but in some places beaches, minor roads, tracks and permissive paths are used. The route is generally level with very few climbs.

Client Feedback

You guys are really good at what you do! This is walk no.4 for us – we love Mickledore.

We were hugely impressed by Northumberland. Not an area that gets much publicity but well worth the visit. The walk itself has great variety – its not just a 60 mile hike up sandy beaches!

How likely is it that you would recommend Mickledore to a friend? Extremely likely – third time we’ve used Mickledore. Always worked smoothly – accommodation of a consistently high standard. Good range of walks available – already looking ahead to 2019!

This is our third walking holiday with Mickledore, every walk superbly organised in every way! This has led us to become used to a very high standard wherever we go, so when an accommodation turns out not to be perfect we are really surprised and a bit disappointed, but we quickly got over it! We are definitely going on more fabulous walks in England!
