  • Arriving on Lindisfarne before your walk and exploring Lindisfarne Castle and Priory.

This itinerary fits perfectly into a weeks holiday. Some days are long and challenging and it’s recommended for experienced walkers. The St Oswald’s Way is a fascinating, historical 97 mile walk through some of the finest landscapes in Northumberland. The walk hugs the coastline heading south from Holy Island before heading inland across beautiful countryside to Heavenfield. This walk will energise and enrich you with the fascinating history and wonderful landscapes of England’s northernmost county. Starting your walking adventure in Holy Island you follow the stunning Northumberland Coastline from Bamburgh with its famous Castle, past small seaside villages down to the fishing village of Craster and on through Alnmounth to Warkworth. The walk then heads inland across the beautiful countryside to Rothbury and south to Heavenfield in Hadrian’s Wall country. The walk links places associated with St Oswald, the King of Northumbria in the early 7th Century, who played a major part in bringing Christianity to his people. Your holiday features hand-picked overnight accommodation in high quality B&B’s, country inns, and guesthouses. Each is unique and offers the highest levels of welcome, atmosphere and outstanding local cuisine. We also include daily door to door baggage transfers, a comprehensive guide book with detailed maps and pre-departure information pack as well as emergency support, should you need it.
