About this holiday

Walk 1 –8 miles – Circular Craster Route

This first full day walk starts and finishes in the small fishing village of Craster, famous for its kipper, and takes in the stark ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle. In an area particularly rich in castles it remains, nevertheless, one of the most attractive, standing out majestically against the backdrop of the North Sea. We will walk along fine close-cropped grassy paths, with the sea for company, pass two important seabird colonies, a shipwreck and the entrance to Howick Hall Gardens (the home of Earl Grey tea). We walk through farmland seeing the remnants of an unusual World War II pillbox before stopping off at the delightful Cottage Inn for lunch (own account).

Walk 2 – 10 miles - Boulmer to Warkworth

Sundays walk follows the coast from Boulmer (tide permitting) down the coast to Almouth, an attractive little seaside town, all red roofs and colour-washed walls. Following the River Aln, we walk around the estuary which is significant in size at high tide and is a haven for wildlife and birds. Continuing through meadows and along the Buston Links dunes, a National Trust managed site which is haven for wildflowers and is protected for its sea rocket, the path leads into Warkworth. After a pub lunch (own account) we visit this delightful village with its imposing C15th castle, once the home to the mighty Percy barons. We walk along the peaceful River Coquet skirting the castle grounds and back into the village.
