Coast to Coast

The Coast to Coast Walk is a long-distance footpath in England that crosses the country from west to east, starting at St Bees on the west coast of Cumbria and finishing at Robin Hood’s Bay on the east coast of North Yorkshire. The walk was devised by Alfred Wainwright and first described in his book “A Coast to Coast Walk” published in 1973.

The Coast to Coast Walk covers a distance of approximately 190 miles (305 km) and typically takes 12-14 days to complete, although some walkers choose to do it faster or slower. The route crosses three national parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors, and passes through a variety of landscapes, from rugged mountains and rolling hills to quiet valleys and picturesque villages.

The Coast to Coast Walk is considered one of the most popular long-distance walks in the UK, attracting thousands of walkers every year. It is a challenging walk that requires a good level of fitness and some experience of hiking, but it also offers stunning scenery, a sense of adventure, and the opportunity to meet other walkers from around the world.

The Arncliffe Arms welcomes hundreds of Coast to Coast walkers every year. The pub is perfectly placed to provide accommodation for singles, twins or couples as they rest before their finally walk to Robin Hoods Bay.
