Suggested Itinerary

Northumberland Walking Holiday

Take the train from London (or your local station) north to Alnmouth on the rugged Northumberland coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. On arrival, check in for a 3-night stay at the Hope & Anchor Inn (or similar).

Founded in 1150, Alnmouth is a beautiful village made up of pastel-coloured houses which extend onto sweeping golden beaches. On your first day, why not just relax at one of the pubs and restaurants or get your first look at the sand dunes for which this area is famous.

Alnmouth makes a great base for walkers. Included with your holiday, you’ll get an Ordnance Survey map for the local area as well as a guide book with lots of ideas for routes. The Alnmouth tourist office also has a free guide for walks in the area from a mile-long stroll to 11-mile rambles. One of the most stunning routes has to be the Northumberland Coast Path. Walk south from Alnmouth, looking out for secluded coves, sea birds and other wildlife and end up at the romantic castle ruins of Warkworth.

A short rail journey north on the East Coast Mainline brings you to Berwick-Upon-Tweed, where you have a 3-night stay at the Castle Vale House (or similar).

There are plenty of options for breathtaking walks from Berwick-upon-Tweed. You can get your bearings by taking a short stroll on the Coast and Walls Trail which covers the town walls and Elizabethan ramparts. Within 15 minutes of your hotel, you are at the coast where you can rejoin the Northumberland Coast Path, taking you down to lovely Lindisfarne (Holy Island). The Berwickshire Coastal Path takes in some dramatic clifftop scenery complete with arches, stacks and crumbling castles.
