Walks

Accommodation

If you require transport and accommodation, we can arrange this on your behalf. Accommodation will be in twin-room B&B, hostel or bunkhouse unless, otherwise requested.

Equipment

Waterproofs, rucksacks etc. are available if required.

We have a programme of guided walks in Northumberland all year round.
We also provide guided walks in the North Pennines, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Hadrian's Wall.  The Cheviot, Windy Gyle, Cross Fell and Scafell Pike are just a few of the days out we can offer.  Guided walks along St. Cuthbert's Way and Hadrian's Wall Path can be arranged - call for details.

We can also provide a guide for your National 3 Peaks, or Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge.

Your own ideas

In addition to our full programme of walks, we are happy to put forward ideas and suggestions as to what will suit a particular group or individual. Groups of all ages and abilities can be provided for, whether you want a family stroll, or a more strenuous day in the hills. We try to offer an adventurous day out, and many of our walks get off the beaten track; you will not always be led along a waymarked trail, and there may not be a visible path underfoot. We also aim to make our walks informative, and most importantly, fun!

If the walk you want is not listed, please contact us. Or, if you would like the walk on another day, again contact us.

Hadrian's WallHadrian's Wall Path

Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail is an unbroken 84-mile signposted trail stretching from coast-to-coast, from Wallsend in the east to Bowness-on-solway in the west.

It passes through some of the most beautiful parts of England - from rolling fields and rugged moorland to the vibrant cities of Newcastle and Carlisle.

Several variations and options are available: East to West, West to East, four, five or six days, for example.

You may wish to be guided from start to finish, or just to take in some of the best/most scenic parts/areas around Wall, perhaps as a circular route.  Call us to discuss your ideas/requirements.

Prices are from £350 per person, including guide and accommodation.

NEW FOR 2017:

Hadrian's Wall Charity Challenge Walk.

This is a linear walk, taking in some of the most spectacular sections of the Wall. We'll cover a distance of 17.5m/27k, from Walltown to Chollerford, and it should take around eight and a half hours to complete.
You choose the charity and get sponsorship, we'll support you throughout the day, and get you back to the start.

This walk is NOT self guided; there will be a leader with you all the way.

The price does NOT include transport back to Walltown; this is to be paid for on the day.

A minimum of four clients are required for a walk to take place. A support vehicle will be provided for larger groups.

Due to the popularity of this walk, particularly with the various charities we have worked with, we have added dates for 2018. In addition to the long route, there will be the option of two shorter routes; 15m/24k or 10m/16k.

Lindisfarne PriorySt. Cuthbert's Way

St. Cuthbert's Way is one of the most beautiful, varied and enjoyable long distance walking routes in Britain, and one of Scotland's Great Trails. 

Bridging the border between Scotland and England, this inspiring 100k links Melrose in the Scottish Borders where St. Cuthbert started his religious life, with Holy Island off the Northumberland Coast, his original resting place.

Although inspired by St. Cuthbert, this is more than a pilgrimage route.

Dark Sky Walks take place from October to March.

Why not join us for a walk in England's first, and Europe's largest, Dark Sky Park - Northumberland.

St. Cuthbert's Way offers:

  • an ever changing variety of scenery and spectacular views.
  • something of interest for everyone including a wealth of historical and cultural interest.
  • a route which can easily be completed in 4-6 days without requiring a lot of training or high levels of fitness.

We can guide you along the whole route, or if you prefer, only sections of it. If you are short of time and would be more interested in circular routes taking in parts of St. Cuthbert's Way, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Bamburgh CastleSt. Oswald's Way

St. Oswald's Way is a long distance walking route, exploring some of the finest landscapes and fascinating history of Northumberland. It can also be broken up into shorter walks or circular routes if preferred.

From Holy Island in the north, St. Oswald’s Way follows the stunning Northumberland coast, before heading inland across beautiful countryside to Heavenfield and Hadrian’s Wall in the south, a distance of 97 miles (156 km).

The route links some of the 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.
