Coast to Coast

Walking England's wild side

The Coast to Coast Path meanders through three of England’s most beautiful national parks: the world-famous scenery of the Lake District, the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales and the exquisite wide open expanses of the North Yorkshire Moors. It’s an epic walking adventure that passes by stunning lakes, over rugged mountains, moors and dales and through charming rural villages.

England’s iconic Coast to Coast has been adapted over time, but the essence remains the same: an adventurous ramble that takes you from the Irish Sea at St Bees in Cumbria across the Pennine Hills and Yorkshire Moors to embrace the North Sea at Robin Hood’s Bay.

Along the way, you’ll savour majestic mountain top views, stunning fells and dales and the most glorious tarns and becks in northern England. Enjoy countless small rustic villages, charming sheep and plenty of warm, welcoming inns and pubs. We’ve built up long-standing relationships with every host, so we know you’ll love every character-filled B&B carefully chosen by us for their welcoming greeting and comfortable rooms.

And, like every other iconic long-distance walk, the Coast to Coast Path gives you the opportunity to meet fellow walkers from all over the world, share a laugh and a beer and undoubtedly pour over your map and guidebook one more time, just to double check you’re on the right path!
