Check-in at our hotel. When evening comes, we can enjoy a welcome drink with other Solos guests before dinner in the hotel restaurant.

  • Dinner Included
DAY 2

Alnwick to Alnmouth and Warkworth

After breakfast, our first walk starts from our hotel. After leaving Alnwick, our route follows the River Aln across the fields towards the attractive village of Lesbury. From here we continue to Alnmouth, once a busy port which is now a delightful, picturesque coastal resort. Here we shall stop for lunch in a local pub ( at own cost)
After lunch our walk continues around the stunning estuary which is a haven for wildlife and birds, through meadows and along the Buston Links dunes, a National Trust managed site and a haven for wildflowers, protected for its sea rocket. The path leads into Warkworth, a delightful village with its imposing 15th century castle, once the home of the mighty Percy barons. This is a good place to wander around and get a cup of tea before returning to Alnwick by our bus.

DAY 3

Bamburgh, Budle Bay and the Holy Island

Today we take our bus and drive along the stunning Northumberland Coast by way of Embleton and Seahouses to Bamburgh with its imposing castle dating back to Anglo Saxon times. From here we take a short 2.5 mile walk below the castle and along the shore to Budle Bay enjoying magnificent views across to the Farne Islands and Holy Island.  From Budle we take our bus for another short drive up the coast road leading to the causeway crossing over to Lindisfarne or Holy Island, the monastic seat of Celtic Christianity. We shall stop for lunch at the Barn at Beal ( at own cost) overlooking the island before crossing the causeway.
