The trip Coast To Coast: Classic Walk - 15 Days starts in St Bees and ends in Robin Hood's Bay.

Coast To Coast: Classic Walk - 15 Days is a self-guided trip that includes accommodation, meals and others.

Travel at a steady pace along this classic Coast to Coast walking route from St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay. Rollup, rollup for Wainwright’s masterpiece! This is the quintessential English hill walking and long distance trail experience: 190 plus miles traversing three national parks and a lot of interesting landscapes, old towns and of course public houses in between! It is amazing to think that this most famous of routes, totally eclipsing the Pennine Way in terms of popularity and variety, is still not classified as a National Trail! Starting at the tiny Cumbrian seaside resort of St. Bees on the Irish Sea we head east, with the wind, into the Lake district to pass by some of its most famous lakes and cross some important passes, with options to extend days (with ascents of peaks such as Helvellyn). Then it is on into the Yorkshire Dales and over the mystical Nine Standards Rig, before following the beautiful River Swale for a couple of days into the old market town of Richmond. There follows a marathon section to link up with the North York Moors National Park from where we roller coaster around to the North Sea Coast to make a triumphant entrance into Robins Hoods Bay where a celebratory pint, bottle of Champagne or ice cream whilst standing in the sea is in order. Along the way you will be amazed at the variety of the dry stone walls, the charming little villages and just how much that you get to eat for a full English cooked breakfast! There are cozy small hotels, guesthouses and pubs to stay at on this tour and these, as well as the rich variety of the people that you meet enroute, reflect something of the great diversity of England. We also offer an 18 Day extended walk.

“The reliability of our suitcases being delivered correctly and before arrival allowed so much more time to concentrate on our day ahead. Your choice of accommodation for our group of four was an unexpected delight upon every arrival. The proprietors were welcoming and cordial. I can't say enough about the quality outcome of Sherpa's services and dependability.”

“The trip was great and the weather perfect. Accommodation very good. Apart from a troublesome left knee I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent scenery. I didn't allow for rest days, which are absolutely necessary to help foot and leg recovery. Sherpa travel are a must and highly recommended.”
