This self-guided cycling holiday explores the beautiful regions to be found along the coast of Northumberland. Northumberland is something of an undiscovered gem. Often overlooked by visitors to Northern England, the county offers amazing variety.
Cycle here and you’ll experience monumental castles and charming villages along the coast, while inland rolling hills and vast vistas of the Cheviots await. This part of Northumberland is largely flat making for an easy going cycle tour. Over five days, you’ll explore everything from quaint coastal villages to sweeping picture-postcard valleys to winding county lanes. From moorland to beaches, this area includes several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and nature reserves.
Northumberland is also known for its incredible cultural heritage. From the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and its collection of historic structures accessed only by a tidal causeway to the iconic medieval pile, Bamburgh Castle, as well as the imposing Warkworth Castle. At the end of each day relax and dine in hand-picked accommodation in two of Northumberland’s finest villages.
