Coming for a walk?
It's been labelled 'the best place in the country for walking' by Country Walking magazine, and when you come walking in Northumberland you can see why this area is renowned for the variety and quality of its footpaths and bridleways.
Whether you're looking for challenging long-distance walks and waymarked trails or leisurely circular walks, there's no better place to base yourself for a walking holiday in Northumberland than at St Cuthbert's House.
After a long day out, you want to come home to a really comfortable base - to have a leisurely soak in a hot bath, curl up on a huge sofa with a book and a drink, and then retire to the most comfortable bed you've ever slept in. It's part of the delight of a walking holiday - you've earned your rest!
It's easy to base yourself here for several days and explore, by walking Northumberland's coast and countryside.
We have loads of maps and guidebooks, and local knowledge to share with you about the best places to go walking on the Northumberland Coast.
There's plenty of wonderful walking to be done by stepping out of our door in each day in a different direction! We have lots of route ideas and outlines, and if you use a gps we can even give you .gpx files.
Or, you could use a bus or taxi to get to starting points easily - if you're walking sections of the Northumberland Coast Path or St Oswald's Way, for example - or drive to start points for circular walks in Northumberland's coast and country.
Why not spend today walking a section of the beautiful coast, and tomorrow climbing up towards 2000ft in the Cheviot hills? It's easy and convenient, from St Cuthbert's House. All without the hassle of 'moving on'.
We can help you take a walk in the company of expert local guides Patrick & Louise from Footsteps in Northumberland, and we're sure you will get so much more out of your walk as they reveal the things most of us wouldn't spot. They pay attention to the detail, and lead you in exploring not just the path itself, but the history and traditions which formed it.
Or you can set out alone, to seek the precious quiet and solitude which makes Northumberland the best place to walk, and see why it's officially England's most tranquil County.
Space to breathe, and to think, and to let your mind wander… awe-inspiring landscapes… wide-open seascapes... deep calls to deep… come and see!
