Pennine Way

Routes offered on this trail

The Pennine Way is an iconic National Trail, cutting through the length of England’s Northern uplands.  From the Hills of the Derbyshire Peak District up through the stunning Yorkshire Dales, crossing over the historic Hadrian’s Wall to end at the Scottish boarder in Kirk Yetholm.  This is a trail of immense beauty, covering a large amount of hill walking in often very remote areas. The path consists of varying terrain that crosses through valleys and dales, which can be very challenging in some places.  Only offered in one direction, the route can be walked as a whole or as the south, central or northern section.   

This trail has frequent steep climbs over some more difficult terrain, so is classed as a challenging walk. Recommended for experienced walkers.   

On route you will have the opportunity to visit High Force- England's biggest waterfall, Wensleydale Creamery- the home of Wensleydale cheese, Hadrian's Wall and a large number of reservoirs.            

The mileage shown below is from where the Pennine Way path starts and finishes each day and is for your guidance only. A large part of this walk includes along rural areas, so you will find that sometimes the accommodations are very close to the path and other times you will need to walk a little further to reach your accommodation. You will not be asked to walk any further than one and a half miles from the path to your accommodation. Please see the Itinerary pages for more details.

Dates to avoid in the area, due to large events taking all of the accommodation.

Hawes is another excellent rest day location, home to the Wensleydale Creamery, a source of the world-famous Wensleydale Cheese, with a unique tasting room open to visitors. Hawes is a bustling market town with range of shops and cafes, also home to England’s highest single drop waterfall Hardraw Force.

Once Brewed

On the Northern section of the Pennine way is Once Brewed, situated close to the Hadrian’s Wall. A rest day here can be used to explore the wonderful history of the Roman built wall.  There is a very popular circular walk from Twice Brewed which takes you to the famous historical locations of Vindolanda; an archaeological site with museum and Housesteads Roman fort; the most complete Roman fort in Britian.  There is an excellent bus service which runs the circular route, allowing you to visit the sites without having to walk the additional miles.
