Wainright’s Coast to Coast
We are in the heart of the Patterdale Valley, metres from the shores of England’s most beautiful lake and at the base of the always daunting Helvellyn. We are also waiting to greet you at the end of the 3rd or 4th day of Wainright’s Coast to Coast. Having lived in Glenridding (nearly) all my life I know a thing or two about what you hardy souls may be needing when you arrive! Tea and Biscuits will be awaiting in your room, a hot shower and I’ll even make sure your gear is dry ready for the off the next morning. I also offer a packed lunch service you can take advantage of. I know that you also like to set off early so offer an early breakfast at 7.30 for my C2Cers, just ask on arrival.
Glenridding boasts 3 bars, 2 local shops and 3 cafes, so plenty of choice for some food and refreshment, an outdoor shop for anything you may have decided needs upgrading, and Ullswater Steamers. One of the shops opens at 7 am daily so suitable for even the earliest of risers and starting the walk with a trip down our beautiful lake Ullswater will add another unforgettable memory to your trip.
The Coast to Coast is a walking trail running for 313km (195 miles) across Northern England. It was devised by Alfred Wainwright and set out in his book A Coast to Coast Walk in 1973.
Most often walked West to East, the route starts at St Bees on the Irish Sea and ends at Robin Hood's Bay on the North Sea. In between are the three National Parks of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors.
The highest point reached by the standard route is 792m at Rampsgill Head in the Lakes. The terrain passed through is a mix of mountains, upland moors and low-lying farmland.
Trekkers completing the whole Coast to Coast take around a fortnight. The route also lends itself to walking shorter sections, for example a week or a weekend.
As well as the whole Coast to Coast route, we offer the first and the second half as self-guided walking holidays
We can provide as much or as little input as required - we do a bit of everything!!
Guided and self-guided Coast 2 Coast organisation. We have over 10 years experience planning for ever need.
Let us do all the hard work - just choose where you want to stay. We'll make all the reservations, pick up your bags every morning and drop them at your destination.
Fully revived and ready for the next Coast to Coast day!!
