Northumberland Coast Path

103 km / 64 miles

The Northumberland Coast Path is part of the North Sea Trail. From Cresswell it hugs the coast as far as Bamburgh before heading inland to Belford and the Kyloe Hills, which offer panoramic coastal views. From here is joins St. Cuthbert's Way and returns to the coast at the causeway to Holy Island before continuing to Berwick.
