St Oswald's Way - 9 Days & 8 Nights

  • Arriving on Lindisfarne before your walk and exploring Lindisfarne Castle and Priory.
  • The abundance of religious and local history.
  • Following the breathtaking Northumberland Coastline and staying in seaside villages.
  • Trying out the famous oak-smoked kippers in Craster.
  • Walking through the heather-clad moors of the Simonside Hills.
This itinerary breaks the last walking section from Kirkwhelpington to Heavenfield into two shorter days. 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.
