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.

You’re doing a great job, please just carry on. All of our accommodations were ‘walker friendly’ which must be down to the careful selection by Mickledore.
