OVERVIEW

If you are not quite ready to commit to the full Coast to Coast walk and would like a somewhat easier pack free walking experience which still offers some of the best walking in the United Kingdom with a fantastic variety of scenery and experiences, then this is the trip for you. Starting in the old market town of Kirkby Stephen and finishing in the small fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Sea, this 10-day walk (175 km) takes you through some of the most celebrated and loveliest parts of England. Much of your time is spent in the National Park areas of the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors.

Hot tips

August is one of the best months in which to walk the Coast to Coast. The weather is often relatively stable, the heather is in flower, and it is often less busy at this time than one might expect!

The majority of the Coast to Coast walk is not waymarked. In some places, there are small “Wainwright” stickers on the public path markers to indicate which of the diverse routes is the Coast to Coast. There are occasional signposts kindly erected by local councils, and numerous unofficial signs to prevent you from walking through someone’s garden or field, but on the whole, you will need to rely on our comprehensive set of notes! The map we provide and a compass or a GPS is also useful.

DAY 1
Arrive Kirkby Stephen

Arrive at Kirkby Stephen at your own leisure. Explore the town and the Stainmore Railway Company or the other various other walks in the area like out to Pendragon and Brough castles. These Castles were built to keep out the marauding Scots and were part of a system of Pele towers strewn across northern England. Allegedly Pendragon was first built by King Arthur’s father, however, this is probably just a romantic story but a good one nonetheless.

Accommodation: Kirkby Stephen in an ensuite room

DAY 2
Kirkby Stephen to Keld

This is a real red-letter day in which you cross that backbone of the British Isles known as the Pennines. In doing so, you also cross an important division of watersheds. From here, all rivers flow east to drain into the North Sea. It’s downhill all the way from here then? Unfortunately not! In clear weather, ascend on country lanes then boggy tracks to the summit of the Nine Standards Rigg (ridge) which features a series of large dry stone cairns thought to be at least 800 years old. Beyond this lies a notorious area of peat hags (bogs) that might easily trap the unwary walker in wet years. Happily, the paths here are finally being reinforced with flagstones. In poor weather, an easy lower-level route is the better option.

Walks: Moderate / 18 km / 5-7 hrs
Ascent: 640m / Descent: 470m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Keld in an ensuite room

DAY 3
Keld to Reeth

The high route via the moors & old industrial ruins

A hill walk over the moors via an evocative landscape dotted with ruins of former mining activities. Mining reached its peak here in the late 18th and early 19th century, employing thousands of people. Most of the remains encountered today, such as ruined smelt mills, chimneys, flues, old mine shafts, spoil heaps, and modified watercourses, date from this time. The industry collapsed towards the end of the 19th century.

The alternative low route via the Swale River

Sometimes described as the “Royal Road to Reeth”, this low-level route features a cornucopia of riverside loveliness. In spring and early summer, the meadows are lush with wildflowers. If the clouds are low over the hills, this is definitely the path to take.

This day offers two options – a low & high route

The high route via the moors & old industrial ruins
Walks: Moderate / 18 km / 5-6 hrs
Ascent: 640m / Descent: 775m

The alternative low route via the Swale River
Walks: Moderate / 19 km / 4-5 hrs
Ascent: 260m / Descent: 395m

Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Reeth in an ensuite room

DAY 4
Reeth to Richmond

An easy section, but one abundantly endowed with variety and beauty. Broadly following the line of the Swale River, today’s walk features pastures, meadowlands, woodlands, and country lanes. Taking you past the old priory at Marrick (now an outdoor adventure centre), through the small village of Marske with its lovely old church, and Whitcliffe Wood, to Richmond. Historic Richmond, dominated by the ruins of its famous old castle (dating from 1071), is the largest town on the C2C. Richmond is well worth exploring and would be a good place for a rest day.

Walks: Easy to Moderate / 17 km / 5 hrs
Ascent: 400m / Descent: 475m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Richmond in an ensuite room

DAY 5
Richmond to Danby Wiske

Easy walking through the Vale of Mobray. This area is known for its fertile agricultural land and hedgerows. During the morning, the walk continues along the River Swale, but beyond the village of Bolton-on-Swale, you will strike out across the fields towards Danby Wiske. When Wainwright originally did this walk, there was no option but to walk along the country lanes for this last section. Now, thanks to landowners honouring the public rights of way and supporting the C2C, we have a lovely alternative. Consider stopping at historic Kiplin Hall for a traditional cream tea on the way!

Walks: Moderate / 23 km / 7-8 hrs
Ascent: 175m / Descent: 270m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Danby Wiske in an ensuite room

DAY 6
Danby Wiske to Ingleby

A shorter day today, across the last of the Vale of Mowbray to the foot of the Cleveland Hills via which you will climb up onto the North York Moors. A day to relax and prepare mentally for the challenges to come on the North York Moors. If continuing to the nearby village of Osmotherley, a slightly longer day will be required.

North York Moors
A wild area of open, virtually uninhabited, high moorland studded with heather, some of which is protected by the national park. Ancient standing stones, medieval crosses, and old 18th-century estate boundary markers are frequently encountered.

Walks: Easy / 14.5 km / 4-5 hrs
Ascent: 110m / Descent: 75m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Ingleby Arncliff or Ingleby Cross in an ensuite room

DAY 7
Ingleby to Clay Bank Top

This is an exhilarating walk which begins with a steep climb up through Arncliffe Wood. Continue onto the wild upland moors covered with heather, with grand views over the Vale of Mowbray now far below. On a clear day, you can see back to the Pennine Hills, or even catch a glimpse of the North Sea! The remains of ancient burial sites abound here. Just look for the word tumulus or howe on your map. The Lord Stones Café, ingeniously built into the hillside, offers a nice spot for a coffee or lunch. A last push over the Wain Stones at Hasty Bank to descend to the road at Clay Bank Top, the end of the walk for today. You will be transferred to your accommodation.

Walks: Moderate / 18.5 km / 6 hrs
Ascent: 775m / Descent: 570m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Broughton, Urra or Chop Gate in an ensuite room

DAY 8
Clay Bank Top to Blakey Ridge

An easier day but one that begins with a steep climb to the top of Urra Moor. From there, follow the wide track over this upland heath-covered plateau. Keep your eyes peeled for ancient carved stones and old estate boundary markers. Part of the walk today is along the trail of the former Rosedale Ironstone Railway which used to serve the nearby mines over 150 years ago. With views on a clear day over the pretty Farndale valley, you will soon arrive at the road by Blakey Ridge and the historic Lion Inn. This is a great place to stay if they have room for you. This funky rustic establishment has been offering refreshments and accommodation to travellers for centuries! At the very least, have a break and enjoy a hot or cold beverage. You will be transferred to your accommodation if not staying at the Lion Inn.

Walks: Easy / 14 km / 4 hrs
Ascent: 310m / Descent: 180m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Blakey Ridge in an ensuite room

DAY 9
Blakey Ridge to Glaisdale

A short walk along the road from the Lion Inn brings you past a prehistoric standing stone to Young Ralph’s Cross, the medieval stone marker featured on the emblem for the North York Moors National Park. Turning off onto a quiet country lane, you pass the squat white “wheel cross” known affectionately as Fat Betty, which may also be medieval, or far older. It is traditional for travellers to leave a food offering here. Make sure it’s not a muesli bar though – the grouse often use this cross as a feeding table! Easy moorland walking with views over the beautiful Great Fryup Dale (the name is a derivation of the Old Norse for the goddess Freya and hop meaning valley), along Glaisdale Rigg, and finally down into the village of Glaisdale.

Walks: Moderate / 16 km / 4-5 hrs
Ascent: 110m / Descent: 410m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Glaisdale in an ensuite room

DAY 10
Glaisdale to Littlebeck

A lovely day of walking through the Esk Valley featuring cosy English villages nestled in gentle bucolic hills. For sheer charm, only the Lake District villages come even close. Through the village of Egton Bridge to Grosmont, home of the North York Moors Railway. Run by volunteers as a non-profit organisation, the steam trains here were some of those featured in the Harry Potter movies. Perhaps take a ride on one to the nearby village of Goathland and walk back to Grosmont along the rail trail. There are good cafés here too. Continuing on, there’s a last steep climb up to the top of Sleights Moor where you’ll get great views of the North Sea. You’re almost there!

Walks: Easy / 13 km / 4 hrs
Ascent: 370m / Descent: 320m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Littlebeck in an ensuite room

DAY 11
Littlebeck to Robin Hood’s Bay

Your last day on the Coast to Coast and it’s a spectacular one. From Littlebeck, walk through leafy woodlands to the Falling Foss Falls near Midge House Tearooms. Continue along the merry stream of May Beck before meeting up with country lanes for the gentle ascent to the top of the Graystone Hills moor. Then along a few more country lanes to the village of High Hawsker before reaching the tall sea cliffs north of Robin Hoods Bay. What a finale! Only a few km more, until finally, as you come over the last rise, your destination is revealed before you. Continue down through the village to the Bay Hotel at the very bottom to the sign proclaiming the official endpoint of the Coast to Coast – 192 Miles from St Bees (309 km). What an achievement and what an adventure!

Walks: Moderate / 18.5 km / 6 hrs

Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Robin Hood’s Bay in an ensuite room

ACCOMMODATION & DINING

A real highlight on this walk as it is for all the Coast to Coast trips is staying in the traditional English Bed and Breakfast and lodge accommodations along the way. The genuine warm welcome each day from your hosts is all part of the experience. In many cases, the hosts own the accommodation and subsequently provide a much more personable experience. Hosts often have intimate knowledge of the history of the Coast to Coast track, many of them have walked the Coast to Coast, some multiple times. All the properties are well cared for and of course very comfortable, offering all the local hospitality that the English are renowned for.

After each day’s walk on the Coast to Coast East, you will be rewarded with a hot shower, a comfortable bed and cooked dinner (we’ve left this to you as there are many choices on offer). We do however include all the cooked breakfasts in residence and all the walker’s lunches.

GENERAL INFO

WHY CHOOSE AUSWALK FOR THE COAST TO COAST

For starters, we’ve actually walked the track and take the time to curate what we actually offer. The Coast to Coast follows clear walking tracks throughout but there are lots of tracks going in all directions. In areas like the Lakes District National Park, walking tracks are not signposted at all, it is apparently against their “ethos”. Not to worry, our very comprehensive day-by-day walking notes that we’ve created, together with our marked copy of a detailed walking map, will ensure that you can walk the Coast to Coast with full confidence, and no fear of becoming lost, even when it is foggy and misty.

AVAILABILITY OF THE COAST TO COAST WALK EAST

The walk is available from March to October. Outside that time please check with us.

August is one of the best months in which to walk the Coast to Coast. The weather is often relatively stable, the heather is in flower, and it is often less busy at this time than one might expect! However, we also recommend spring and autumn as the best time to walk the Coast to Coast track as the weather is pretty good for walking.

There is some incline but we’re not talking about anything significant. The United Kingdom is prone to having rain, no surprise there, so there may be some boggy sections but this entirely depends on the time of year and the prevailing conditions. Our advice is to prepare and bring the right gear and you’ll have a fabulous walk. See gear advice in FAQ’s

This is a real red-letter day in which you cross that backbone of the British Isles known as the Pennines. In doing so, you also cross an important division of watersheds. From here, all rivers flow east to drain into the North Sea. It’s downhill all the way from here then? Unfortunately not! In clear weather, ascend on country lanes then boggy tracks to the summit of the Nine Standards Rigg (ridge) which features a series of large dry stone cairns thought to be at least 800 years old. Beyond this lies a notorious area of peat hags (bogs) that might easily trap the unwary walker in wet years. Happily, the paths here are finally being reinforced with flagstones. In poor weather, an easy lower-level route is the better option.

Walks: Moderate / 18 km / 5-7 hrs
Ascent: 640m / Descent: 470m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Keld in an ensuite room

DAY 3
Keld to Reeth

The high route via the moors & old industrial ruins

A hill walk over the moors via an evocative landscape dotted with ruins of former mining activities. Mining reached its peak here in the late 18th and early 19th century, employing thousands of people. Most of the remains encountered today, such as ruined smelt mills, chimneys, flues, old mine shafts, spoil heaps, and modified watercourses, date from this time. The industry collapsed towards the end of the 19th century.

The alternative low route via the Swale River

Sometimes described as the “Royal Road to Reeth”, this low-level route features a cornucopia of riverside loveliness. In spring and early summer, the meadows are lush with wildflowers. If the clouds are low over the hills, this is definitely the path to take.

This day offers two options – a low & high route

The high route via the moors & old industrial ruins
Walks: Moderate / 18 km / 5-6 hrs
Ascent: 640m / Descent: 775m

The alternative low route via the Swale River
Walks: Moderate / 19 km / 4-5 hrs
Ascent: 260m / Descent: 395m

Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Reeth in an ensuite room

DAY 4
Reeth to Richmond

An easy section, but one abundantly endowed with variety and beauty. Broadly following the line of the Swale River, today’s walk features pastures, meadowlands, woodlands, and country lanes. Taking you past the old priory at Marrick (now an outdoor adventure centre), through the small village of Marske with its lovely old church, and Whitcliffe Wood, to Richmond. Historic Richmond, dominated by the ruins of its famous old castle (dating from 1071), is the largest town on the C2C. Richmond is well worth exploring and would be a good place for a rest day.

Walks: Easy to Moderate / 17 km / 5 hrs
Ascent: 400m / Descent: 475m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Richmond in an ensuite room

DAY 5
Richmond to Danby Wiske

Easy walking through the Vale of Mobray. This area is known for its fertile agricultural land and hedgerows. During the morning, the walk continues along the River Swale, but beyond the village of Bolton-on-Swale, you will strike out across the fields towards Danby Wiske. When Wainwright originally did this walk, there was no option but to walk along the country lanes for this last section. Now, thanks to landowners honouring the public rights of way and supporting the C2C, we have a lovely alternative. Consider stopping at historic Kiplin Hall for a traditional cream tea on the way!

Walks: Moderate / 23 km / 7-8 hrs
Ascent: 175m / Descent: 270m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Danby Wiske in an ensuite room

DAY 6
Danby Wiske to Ingleby

A shorter day today, across the last of the Vale of Mowbray to the foot of the Cleveland Hills via which you will climb up onto the North York Moors. A day to relax and prepare mentally for the challenges to come on the North York Moors. If continuing to the nearby village of Osmotherley, a slightly longer day will be required.

North York Moors
A wild area of open, virtually uninhabited, high moorland studded with heather, some of which is protected by the national park. Ancient standing stones, medieval crosses, and old 18th-century estate boundary markers are frequently encountered.

Walks: Easy / 14.5 km / 4-5 hrs
Ascent: 110m / Descent: 75m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Ingleby Arncliff or Ingleby Cross in an ensuite room

DAY 7
Ingleby to Clay Bank Top

This is an exhilarating walk which begins with a steep climb up through Arncliffe Wood. Continue onto the wild upland moors covered with heather, with grand views over the Vale of Mowbray now far below. On a clear day, you can see back to the Pennine Hills, or even catch a glimpse of the North Sea! The remains of ancient burial sites abound here. Just look for the word tumulus or howe on your map. The Lord Stones Café, ingeniously built into the hillside, offers a nice spot for a coffee or lunch. A last push over the Wain Stones at Hasty Bank to descend to the road at Clay Bank Top, the end of the walk for today. You will be transferred to your accommodation.

Walks: Moderate / 18.5 km / 6 hrs
Ascent: 775m / Descent: 570m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Broughton, Urra or Chop Gate in an ensuite room

DAY 8
Clay Bank Top to Blakey Ridge

An easier day but one that begins with a steep climb to the top of Urra Moor. From there, follow the wide track over this upland heath-covered plateau. Keep your eyes peeled for ancient carved stones and old estate boundary markers. Part of the walk today is along the trail of the former Rosedale Ironstone Railway which used to serve the nearby mines over 150 years ago. With views on a clear day over the pretty Farndale valley, you will soon arrive at the road by Blakey Ridge and the historic Lion Inn. This is a great place to stay if they have room for you. This funky rustic establishment has been offering refreshments and accommodation to travellers for centuries! At the very least, have a break and enjoy a hot or cold beverage. You will be transferred to your accommodation if not staying at the Lion Inn.

Walks: Easy / 14 km / 4 hrs
Ascent: 310m / Descent: 180m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Blakey Ridge in an ensuite room

DAY 9
Blakey Ridge to Glaisdale

A short walk along the road from the Lion Inn brings you past a prehistoric standing stone to Young Ralph’s Cross, the medieval stone marker featured on the emblem for the North York Moors National Park. Turning off onto a quiet country lane, you pass the squat white “wheel cross” known affectionately as Fat Betty, which may also be medieval, or far older. It is traditional for travellers to leave a food offering here. Make sure it’s not a muesli bar though – the grouse often use this cross as a feeding table! Easy moorland walking with views over the beautiful Great Fryup Dale (the name is a derivation of the Old Norse for the goddess Freya and hop meaning valley), along Glaisdale Rigg, and finally down into the village of Glaisdale.

Walks: Moderate / 16 km / 4-5 hrs
Ascent: 110m / Descent: 410m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Glaisdale in an ensuite room

DAY 10
Glaisdale to Littlebeck

A lovely day of walking through the Esk Valley featuring cosy English villages nestled in gentle bucolic hills. For sheer charm, only the Lake District villages come even close. Through the village of Egton Bridge to Grosmont, home of the North York Moors Railway. Run by volunteers as a non-profit organisation, the steam trains here were some of those featured in the Harry Potter movies. Perhaps take a ride on one to the nearby village of Goathland and walk back to Grosmont along the rail trail. There are good cafés here too. Continuing on, there’s a last steep climb up to the top of Sleights Moor where you’ll get great views of the North Sea. You’re almost there!

Walks: Easy / 13 km / 4 hrs
Ascent: 370m / Descent: 320m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Littlebeck in an ensuite room

DAY 11
Littlebeck to Robin Hood’s Bay

Your last day on the Coast to Coast and it’s a spectacular one. From Littlebeck, walk through leafy woodlands to the Falling Foss Falls near Midge House Tearooms. Continue along the merry stream of May Beck before meeting up with country lanes for the gentle ascent to the top of the Graystone Hills moor. Then along a few more country lanes to the village of High Hawsker before reaching the tall sea cliffs north of Robin Hoods Bay. What a finale! Only a few km more, until finally, as you come over the last rise, your destination is revealed before you. Continue down through the village to the Bay Hotel at the very bottom to the sign proclaiming the official endpoint of the Coast to Coast – 192 Miles from St Bees (309 km). What an achievement and what an adventure!

Walks: Moderate / 18.5 km / 6 hrs
Ascent: 435m / Descent: 550m
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Accommodation: Robin Hood’s Bay in an ensuite room

Accommodation & Dining

ACCOMMODATION & DINING

OVERVIEW

A real highlight on this walk as it is for all the Coast to Coast trips is staying in the traditional English Bed and Breakfast and lodge accommodations along the way. The genuine warm welcome each day from your hosts is all part of the experience. In many cases, the hosts own the accommodation and subsequently provide a much more personable experience. Hosts often have intimate knowledge of the history of the Coast to Coast track, many of them have walked the Coast to Coast, some multiple times. All the properties are well cared for and of course very comfortable, offering all the local hospitality that the English are renowned for.

After each day’s walk on the Coast to Coast East, you will be rewarded with a hot shower, a comfortable bed and cooked dinner (we’ve left this to you as there are many choices on offer). We do however include all the cooked breakfasts in residence and all the walker’s lunches.

General Info

GENERAL INFO

WHY CHOOSE AUSWALK FOR THE COAST TO COAST

For starters, we’ve actually walked the track and take the time to curate what we actually offer. The Coast to Coast follows clear walking tracks throughout but there are lots of tracks going in all directions. In areas like the Lakes District National Park, walking tracks are not signposted at all, it is apparently against their “ethos”. Not to worry, our very comprehensive day-by-day walking notes that we’ve created, together with our marked copy of a detailed walking map, will ensure that you can walk the Coast to Coast with full confidence, and no fear of becoming lost, even when it is foggy and misty.

AVAILABILITY OF THE COAST TO COAST WALK EAST

The walk is available from March to October. Outside that time please check with us.

August is one of the best months in which to walk the Coast to Coast. The weather is often relatively stable, the heather is in flower, and it is often less busy at this time than one might expect! However, we also recommend spring and autumn as the best time to walk the Coast to Coast track as the weather is pretty good for walking.

WALKING

12 days is the recommended minimum amount of time in which to do this walk. This means that there are days where you walk up to 23 km days and a few as 13 km.  The shorter days often have a little up and down so there’s always enough walking. We can also adjust this schedule to include rest days if you need to. The track conditions range, but all of the walk is passable, no scrambling required. There is some incline but we’re not talking about anything significant. The United Kingdom is prone to having rain, no surprise there, so there may be some boggy sections but this entirely depends on the time of year and the prevailing conditions. Our advice is to prepare and bring the right gear and you’ll have a fabulous walk. See gear advice in FAQ’s

WEATHER ON THE COAST TO COAST WALK

This walk is not available from November to February. See the United Kingdom Met office or the United Kingdom Meteorological Service for information about the weather and average temperatures and rainfall at different times of the year.
