The Cumbria Coastal Way
Walking Holiday in Northern England
on the England Coast Path from
Silverdale to Gretna Green

Walk Cumbria Coastal Way, one of England’s long distance walking trails, walking in the far North of England from Silverdale to Gretna, via Grange over Sands, Ulverston, Ravenglass, St Bees, Whitehaven, Maryport and Carlisle.
The Cumbria Coastal Way, part of the England Coast Path, is a 188 mile way-marked long-distance walking trail.
This English self-guided walking holiday hikes along the coast of Cumbria and along the fringes of the Lake District. This is a great introduction to walking holidays in UK.
Our suggested itineraries are from South to North as this is the direction in which the guide book is written. However we offer this hiking tour in either direction.

The Cumbria Coastal Way walking trail is clearly way-marked to provide reassurance on your walking holiday in Northern England.
You can walk the whole 188 miles of the coastal path from Silverdale to Gretna in one holiday or split it into several holidays.
We suggest the following sections:
Morecambe Bay, Duddon Estuary and Lake District National Path, West Cumbrian Coast, and Solway Coast.
