The Coast to Coast Packhorse

Coast to Coast across Northern England!

The Coast to Coast Packhorse

The famous Coast to Coast Packhorse has eased the way for thousands of walkers from all over the world for several years. With a personal touch from a dedicated team, Coast to Coast walkers and cyclists are met with a warm, friendly and highly efficient service as they tread or pedal the 192 miles between St. Bees Head on the west coast and Robin Hoods Bay on the east.

For Walkers...

The Coast to Coast Walk is a long distance trail, originally devised by A.Wainwright, across three of England's most magnificent National Parks. Starting at St Bees on Cumbria's west coast, the trail crosses the Lake District with its spectacular mountain scenery before crossing the Pennines and winding its way on through the beautiful Yorkshire Dales to Richmond. After climbing up on to the rugged and tranquil North Yorkshire Moors, the trail comes to an end after 192 miles at the lovely old fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay on Yorkshire's east coast. Typically Walkers complete the crossing in 12-17 days, although this is completely open ended - dependent on ability and personal preference.

For Cyclists...

Although not permitted to follow exactly the same path as the walkers, various routes have been devised to allow cyclists to enjoy the same beautiful countryside in a Coast to Coast Crossing from St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay. Options exist for either a challenging mountain bike crossing with some particularly demanding stages in the Lake District, or a more gentle tarmac crossing for theroad bikers - taking advantage of the minor road network. The 210 mile Mountain Biking route, as described by Tim Woodcock, typically takes 6 days to complete, although this is completely open ended - dependent on ability and personal preference. Road routes range from 174 - 196 miles and are tackled in 3 - 6 days typically dependent on route selection, fitness and pace.
