Stay at Nether Grange, Alnmouth – a comfortable HF Country House a stone’s throw from the beach - Ride along the beautiful Northumberland coast to Craster harbour - Explore the peaceful country roads of Northumberland and the market town of Alnwick - Visit the priory on Holy Island (depending on tides) and take in the majesty of Warkworth Castle - Admire the mighty fortifications at Alnwick and Dunstanburgh castles - Explore part of the Coast and Castles route that runs from Newcastle to Edinbur

Nicknamed "the Secret Kingdom" due its sparse population and hidden wonders, Northumberland is a county of untamed open landscapes and rugged seascapes, dotted with castles and home to an abundance of wildlife. This fantastic cycling holiday will be based out of Nether Grange, HF’s Country House located in the wonderful seaside location of Alnmouth; remote enough to retain its quaint, picturesque character, but also easily accessible by transport.

Over the course of the rides, we'll follow sections of the Coast and Castles cycle route that runs from Edinburgh to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, using quiet country roads, purpose-built cycleways and a number of off-road tracks. Warkworth, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh Castles are on our routes, along with the fishing village of Craster, famous for its kippers. Tides and weather permitting, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne may also be a port of call, where you can visit the priory and contemplate the setting which saw the penning of the Lindisfarne Gospels. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy the solitude of the 7 mile long sweep of beach at Druridge Bay. So join us for this wonderful tour of the Northumbrian coastline and countryside, all set in a friendly and social environment and led by at least two of our experienced guides.
