At Footsteps in Northumberland, we offer guided walks in this remote and beautiful county in North East England. Footsteps will take you on a guided walk in the Cheviot Hills of the Northumberland National Park and along the Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its castles, golden beaches, amazing views and its busy traditional fishing villages. 

The countryside between the hills and the coast has great walking too, and there are many wonderful places to explore on a Footsteps guided walk. Every walk is its own mini-adventure and in Northumberland it’s also a journey of discovery into the rich human history of the England and Scottish Border country.

There is always something here to capture your imagination; there is amazing wildlife to be seen, the Northumberland Coast is home to thousands of birds in each and every season of the year.  Up on the Cheviot Hills the heather glows purple in July and August and its scent fills the air evocatively. Mighty castles dominate distant horizons in a rich historical landscape just waiting to be discovered and what better way to do that, than on a Footsteps guided walk.

You can find out everything about who we are and what we do at Footsteps in Northumberland on our website. We look forward to meeting and walking with you soon on a Footsteps guided walk.

St Cuthbert's and St Oswald's Way to Lindisfarne

NickyPuss, Kenilworth, United Kingdom
Many travelers wait to cross the causeway either side of low tide to access the Island of Lindisfarne. Most drive but the few that walk following the poles across the bay have a unique experience. Wet and muddy you need he right footwear but the glorious quiet and isolation as you approach the middle is incredible.View miles across the sands in both directions and watch cars in the distance seemingly skimming the water. MUST observe the safe crossing times and aim to start and finish an hour either side of low tide. Their are safety platforms in the middle but by being sensible it is perfectly safe. We split our party so we could park on the Island with one crossing by car and walking back and the others dropped off at the land side to walk over. Meeting in the middle was great fun( collect car keys for return pick up). Highly recommended as a different walk. Flat and not strenuous.

Very highly recommended!

We walked the Harthope Valley and up The Cheviot with Patrick today and had a thoroughly enjoyable walk in an area and on hills that we would never have managed or attempted on our own. Patrick is a wonderful guide, calm and patient as well as knowledgable and friendly. He allowed us to go at our own pace and always kept an eye out to make sure we were ok without being over the top. We highly recommend Footsteps - and walking the beauty of Northumberland. Thank you so much Patrick and thanks too to Sarah your sister for her company as well. David and Linda

Made an enjoyable walk into a truly memorable one

Rick V, Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Having had the pleasure of Patrick guiding me for a week along Hadrians wall last August I was keen to try out one of his own walks. The pilgrims way causeway walk to holy island is a walk I have always promised myself I would do as it is one carried out by pilgrims over the last 1000 years and is quite unique in that you can do it barefoot. Patrick adds so much value to a walk with a lovely balance of history, geography and his knowledge of the natural world all delivered with humour and enthusiasm. It was an immense pleasure to renew our friendship and to find there was the inevitable great stop off for refreshments and cakes (the scone pud was terrific as was the cheese scone!!) Thanks for a truly memorable walk, I hope that next time we pass this way we can stop off and do another one.

Second visit every bit as good as the 1st

Fiona M,
Enjoyed the food and experience just as much the 2nd time. We had rack of lamb, fish curry, Pork Wellington, stuffed peppers risotto and steak. Every one was excellently cooked, presented very well and tasted second to none. Desserts were every bit as good. We said hello to Scooby the dog on the way out, the pub is dog friendly (usual rules). Have tried various restaurants and pubs over the past week and this is our favourite. Best book beforehand, can get busy.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Hi Fiona, thank you for your review, but we are a guided walks business, not a restaurant, although it does sound very good.

Just the right balance - informative, helpful and a pleasure to be with!

Patrick was the perfect person for out two day guided walks on part of the Northumberland coastal path last week. Before we had even flown in from Switzerland, he was an enormous help to me in planning the week. Nothing was too much trouble and his knowledge of the area, its history and local attractions were just what we were looking for. Even though my Swiss friends' ability to speak English was a little limited, we all enjoyed our time spent with Patrick and have come away knowing more about the legends, history and wildlife in the area than we hoped for. Thanks for a great two days and hope to be back discovering more of Northumberland with you on a future occasion.

Footsteps - Walking the Beauty of Northumberland replied: Many thanks for your review. I enjoyed walking with you all along the wild and windy Northumberland Coast; it was spectacular to say the least and I hope to walk with you again on your next visit.
