I know this has all been said before but I have to repeat it again; Wainrights Coast to Coast hike is one of life's most memorable experiences. If you are thinking of doing it do it! I did not realise how, once hiking this most beautiful country, the stresses of life just disappear ( as did the bags under my... More

Used Sherpa for bag transport / arranging lodging for our 18 day self directed adventure in June / July 2015. The weather was great -- we only had two days impacted by rain and even then our rain gear stood us in good stead. Starting in St. Bees and ending in Robin Hood's Bay the 192 miles were challenging --... More

we decided if we were going to make the huge effort to walk the coast to coast, we would put ourselves in the hands of experts, and booked with north west walks. They did all the hard work of organising the B and b's, moving the bags to the next stop etc. we have stayed in some superb hostels, whilst... More

We did the hike this year, but with only 2 weeks free, we had to skip a few sections. There is so much to see and do, that if you try to do the whole thing in 2 weeks or less you will not have time to enjoy the places along the way. If you have the money, I definitely... More

We walked 90 percent of the first half of the C2C from St. Bees to Kirby Stephen as a family of four. We used Sherpa to make lodging reservations and haul luggage. They also provided additional maps and advice. The Lake District is stunning and the hiking challenging. We found we enjoyed each day more if the length of the... More

Six of us, all over age 65, attempted this hike from the Irish Sea to North Sea in May of this year. I had many doubts before and during the trek, but it is doable by anyone with determination and a reasonable degree of good health. We spend 16 days hiking with one rest day in Richmond. The mileages varied... More

We started in April of this year due to work constraints and ran into extremely cold weather this year with dangerous ice, snow and hail in the Lake District hikes. Therefore, if you have a choice I would recommend waiting until mid May as the Lake District comes first. You can read my other reviews for lots of tips but... More

My wife and I just completed the C2C using the guided tour with Northwest Walks. We were very impressed with their service both before and during the walk. We are experienced hikers in the US, but would have found navigation difficult through the English countryside. The guided walk was ideal for us and ensured our success. We were pleased with...

After researching this walk I was uncertain if my wife and I were capable of doing it. We like walking but hadn’t done any long distance hiking before, but we decided to “bite the bullet” and give it a go. We are both so glad we did. This is an absolutely fabulous walk. It isn’t easy but it is doable... More
