We completed the coast to coast walk in late July and early August this year 2021. It was harder than we expected, but I great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were very lucky that we had good weather and the support from Packhorse. The service from Packhorse was great from the original enquiry through to picking us up at the end in Robin Hoods Bay and taking us back to our car at Kirkby Stephen. Our bags were always waiting for us at the end of every day. The pubs and B&Bs booked for us by Packhorse were all excellent. I think we would have struggled to book all the accommodation ourselves as we left it all quite late and we would have had no guarantee of its quality. The secure storage for the car in Kirby Stephen and the mini-bus to the start and pick-up at the end was all included in the cost, whereas other companies charge extra. I would certainly recommend Packhorse. They are based on the C to C at Kirkby Stephen, really know their stuff and provided a superb service. I also think they were good value for money Thank you to Mark and his whole team.

We first began arranging our trip in 2019, it was postponed last year and we’ve just completed. The Packhorse team have provided first class support throughout; from setting the itinerary, to agreeing the accommodation and rearranging everything when we had to postpone. All the accommodation was good and no problems with the baggage transfers. You even get a commemorative T-shirt.

Packhorse C2C rearranged all the accommodation for us, as we couldn’t do the trip in May as first planned. Our baggage always arrived before we did. The maps and info provided were fairly adequate. We had purchased a guide book, by Martin Wainwright (as it appens) but some of the details were incorrect in the book, like th e total ascent for the day, which is the basis we had planned our itinerary on. Not this company’s fault. We aren’t spring chickens, but have done trails before, so had a pretty good idea as to what we could manage. One day has 2 significant ascents and we could only do one. Sorry to all the purists out there, but we got a taxi from Grasmere to Patterdale. We also struggled a bit on the route, as no signposts in Cumbria, but they emerge in Yorkshire. Our book said it was well signposted. We should probably have relied on the App a bit more, that Packhorse provide. All the accommodation was absolutely fantastic. Couldn’t fault it. All our hosts had adapted well to the restrictions so everything felt safe and they provided us with everything we needed. We had some wonderful sunny days and the scenery was breathtaking; Ennerdale beside the lake, Patterdale up to Kidsty Pike were particular highlights, which we want to return and repeat. Thank you Packhorse C2C for all your commitment in making it happen, during the trying times of C-19.

Just in case you don't read on, the most important part first. If you're thinking about doing coast to coast (C2C), do it, and if you do it, use C2C Packhorse! Having decided we wanted a baggage service for our walk, we looked at various companies but seeing they also provide a very reasonably priced 'full package' service, we decided that we'd opt for that. From the first interactions we had with Packhorse to seek advice on the various options given our preferred duration (2 weeks) they came back with options for us to consider and once we'd decided where we wanted our longer day to be, they booked all the accommodation etc for us. Every place we stayed be it B&B, pub, Inn or hotel, were all superb. Baggage was always there waiting for us each day (even if we finished quite early on a couple of short days). All that said, the real clincher for us was the fact Packhorse have secure parking in Kirby Stephen and then transport you to the start in St Bees and collect you from Rohin Hood's Bay at the end. There were also a few nice 'extras' they provided but I won't say more as I'd hate to spoil the surprises!
Mark and the whole C2C Packhorse team are to be thanked and commended.
One final note, nothing to do with Packhorse: as well as the most amazing scenery, you will meet some fantastic people along the way. The camaraderie of your fellow C2C walkers is something really special. Just do it!

Being a bit older with one knee that has very little cartilage left, I decided on the 16 day plus two zero day itinerary (18 days total). Sept. into Oct. 2021. If I had to do over again I would only do one zero day, and probably make it in Keld or perhaps Richmond (good food, plenty to see; or earlier in Kirkby Stephen where c2c HQ is).
This was a really fine experience and Marc and the company was terrific. Responsive and professional. The bag movement was flawless, though I did get a stern note abt my yoga mat attached to the outside of my bag, it all worked out in the end.
You meet fellow travelers along the way, and nearly every town has something fascinating to explore. The quality of the BnBs varied, as to be expected, but most were above average with really kind hosts who understand the typical C to C traveler ethos and needs. Top knotch way to directly understand the landscape around you, to directly experience the weather, to see the flora and fauna and contemplate the complex world we live in. Unforgettable. (And read Wainright both before you go, and as you go.)

Fantastic experience! I can highly recommend C2C Packhorse who we chose to organise our trip for us. Accommodation is very variable but the benefit of Packhorse is that we were booked into places on or very close to the route (whereas many of our fellow walkers had to go by taxi to their B&B). The luggage transfer was seamless with no problems at all. The walk is incredible - much harder than I expected - but really fantastic, and very varied as we travelled through three National Parks. We met many wonderful people from all over the world which made the trip even better. We had a rest day in Richmond which worked perfectly for us and I would highly recommend. Also suggest that you book restaurants in advance.

My wife and walked the C2C in 12 days. We got lucky and caught great weather for most of our walk. C2C Packhorse helped arrange our trip and booked our accommodations--we made a booking for a June /July trip in November, so we were able to be booked in each location that we requested. Every place we stayed in was in a convenient location for the route and had great hosts and service, and our bags were always waiting there for us. The free beer in Kirkby Stephen and gift shirt at the end were nice touches. I highly recommend the experience of the walk, and the additional cost of using C2C Packhorse to facilitate the experience is well worth it.

We wanted to walk in memory of our Dad who died of dementia but instilled in us the importance of nature, the great outdoors and connecting with people. As a sponsorship we agreed to take on the challenge of walking/camping from R Hoods Bay to St Bees then turning around and walking/ B and B back.
I’ve used packhorse 3 times before and never been disappointed by any aspect of their attention to detail hence it was without hesitation I asked them to support us with our challenge which involved adding in my sister and husband for differing amounts of nights, holding our luggage whilst we camped our way across England, advising with taxi services to pick up my sister and husband on different days and generally being available to ask advice to as needed.
The accommodation that we stayed in on our travels back to Robin Hoods Bay were really good taking into consideration the range of different areas we stayed in, many were absolutely excellent making us now want to revisit these on another holiday!
Would we use Packhorse again? Absolutely🤪🤪. We are already planning another trip in 2 years time! I would highly recommend Packhorse to anyone who is planning this epic walk, they take the worry and the difficulties out of organising plus supporting with this most amazing challenge. Thank you.

Very impressed and thoroughly recommend all coast to coast walkers to use C2C Packhorse.

I walked the first three legs with my wife in June and both of us loved it!! We are very thankful for having the great support of C2C Packhorse throughout.

Mark’s team are very knowledgeable and provided an excellent service on all aspects of our walk.

All the accommodation was excellent, convenient, welcoming and Covid-19 safe. The baggage transfers are seamless and our bags always got the accommodation before us.

Using C2C Packhorse took all of the stress out of the organisation and allowed us to focus on the walk. If you’re thinking about using C2C Packhorse just do it you will not be disappointed!!

All credit to Mark and his team for helping us organise a memorable trip!!

We will definitely be using Packhorse to complete the remaining sections of the coast to coast route!!

Mark and all the staff at Coast to Coast Packhorse provide a first class service for walkers. Every aspect of my trip was well planned and I felt supported throughout by the efficiency of the transport service. The thrill and relief of seeing your bag already in your next B and B when you arrive cannot be overestimated. All the accommodation was of a high standard, and felt Covid secure, and the majority of hosts were aware of the needs of walkers, in particular, the welcoming cup of tea and cake. I would recommend Packhorse to anyone considering undertaking this challenging and rewarding walk.
