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

Our holiday with Mickledore walking the Northumberland Coastal Path was the first time we have been on a holiday like this. The organisation before we went was very detailed and the resources sent, book and maps, very comprehensive. We enjoyed the ‘unknown’ of what our accommodation was like each night as we had deliberately not looked them up on-line beforeheand. We enjoyed the reading of the next day’s wak each night giving ourselves a refresher over the very tasty and filling breakfasts we had at every stop. The scenery along this route is stunning, the sandy beaches stretch for miles and we were lucky enough to see them with sunshine and blue skies and blue sea.We were proud of our walking achievements each day and we would definitely consider another walking holiday.

Once again the accommodation was a very high standard. I particularly liked Fenham Farm and was glad I stayed two nights.

I got the impression that everywhere I stayed I was given the best room available, because it was a Mickledore holidays booking.

This is the first time we have used an organization to book our accommodation. We considered the standard to be very high. No problem with the baggage.

Would you use Mickledore again? Yes.
