So the trip is booked to do the Coast to Coast walk in May!
Following A. Wainwright’s route from St. Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood Bay in North Yorkshire – it is 190 miles. I booked support through Coast to Coast Packhorse, and having now completed the walk and updating this post can highly recommend them.
Not only did they book all the accomodation (at fairly short notice), they ferried me to the start (St Bees) and from the finish (Robin Hood’s Bay) back to Kirkby Stephen where my car was safely and securely parked. It was a great mix of accomodation, and my bag was at each stop to be found when I arrived at the end of the day. This really freed me up to enjoy the walk, and booking it this way meant no hassle and only one phonecall – rather than 20+ that might have been needed if I was having to phone up every B&B.
If you are thinking of doing the walk I suggest you check Coast to Coast Packhorse out – and have a read through some of my experiences below…
