St Cuthbert's Way

6 days walking, based in Melrose

St Cuthbert's Way is a classic 62 mile (100km) excursion which commences at the fine abbey town of Melrose, close to where St Cuthbert began his ministry in around 650AD, and reaches its terminus on Holy Island, where he later became Prior of Lindisfarne. During his lifetime St Cuthbert travelled widely spreading the gospel, and after his death his body was removed from Lindisfarne by devoted monks fleeing from the Vikings. The route of this walk ties together some of the places associated with St Cuthbert’s story.  More

Pennine Way

The Pennine Way, which follows the backbone of England from the Derbyshire Peak District to the Scottish border is one of Britain's most challenging National Trails. The 268 mile route, which passes through three National Parks, a European Geo-park, and a World Heritage Site, provides upland walking of the highest order. Footpath Holidays offers the route as three separate holidays, which allow guests the choice of completing the route over several years in manageable one week stages, or stringing all three together into an epic journey. More

A Pennine Journey

6 days walking, based in Hawes

In 1938, with the shadow of war looming, Alfred Wainwright took some holiday and set off for a circular walk which would take him north from Settle, along the eastern flank of The Pennines and through the Yorkshire Dales, along one of the finest stretches of Hadrian’s Wall, and then back down the western flank of the Pennines to his original start point. A Pennine Journey is broadly based upon his challenging route.

Over a period of three years we are offering successive sections of A Pennine Journey, giving guests the opportunity to complete this challenging route in manageable stages. In 2016 we shall start the process by offering the eastern section  from Settle in the Yorkshire Dales to High Force in Teesdale. More

Coast to Coast

The route which crosses the north of England from Coast to Coast was made famous by the late Alfred Wainwright whose guidebooks have introduced so many to the joys of walking in this area. It takes in three National Parks; the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors and divides naturally into three sections. Footpath Holidays offers three tours, each of which offer fine walking in their own right, and when strung together enable our guests to tackle a challenging 190 mile route in its entirety. More
