Itinerary for 5 nights below. 

The mileage shown below is from where the Hadrian's Wall path starts and finishes each day and is for your guidance only. Due to the rural nature of the walk there are times when it is not possible to find accommodation in walking distance from the path. You will not be asked to walk any further than one and a half miles from the path to your accommodation, unless otherwise stated.  On the occasions where a (T) has been placed on the itinerary, a transfer from the path will be provided as part of your holiday.  This will either be provided by taxi service or by your host.  You will then be returned to the path the following morning to continue your walk.  When an (L) has been used, there is limited accommodation.  You may need a transfer at this location.  Further transfers not listed, may be required due to some accommodations having a two night minimum booking policy or the accommodations close to the path being already fully booked.   This will be discussed with you at the time of booking your accommodation. 

If you have any questions, please contact us here at Embark walking holidays - we are happy to help.
