Northumberland Coastal Path - 8 Days & 7 Nights

  • Walking along sweeping sands and breathing in fresh sea air.
  • Discovering ancient castles and ruins including Warkworth, Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh.
  • Enjoying the local seafood specialities Craster kippers.
  • A warm Nothumbrian welcome from your hosts.
Start your walking holiday in the fishing village of Cresswell, and follow the sweeping sands of Druridge, to the historic village of Warkworth where you can see Warkworth Castle - the first of many on the walk. Pass through pretty fishing villages Alnmouth, Boulmer and Craster, perhaps taking time to stop and sample some of the famous Craster kippers. Breathe in the fresh sea air as you head to the fascinating ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle before crossing inland to the historic villages of Bamford and Belford. Finish your walk by passing the causeway to the Holy Island, and if tidal times allow, cross over to visit the historic Lindisfarne Priory.
