Where should I stay?
There are plenty of accommodation options on the Northumberland Coast but please remember that not all places will take single-night stays. During the summer months, the coast is very popular with tourists so be sure to book your accommodation well in advance.
We have listed Welcome Port accommodation businesses that are part of our Passport scheme here.
If you can’t find what you are looking for here there are two other ways to easily find accommodation:
Berwick Tourist Information Centre offer a book-a-bed-ahead scheme for the path, you can call them on +44 01670 622 155
Rather than staying at a different place each night, there is an option to stay in one or two locations along the route and using the bus services to travel to and from your start and end points each day. If you decide on a single location, we would recommend Alnwick or Alnmouth as they are both well served by buses heading north and south along the coast. Warkworth and Longhoughton would also work.
Wild camping is not allowed in England, so please do not pitch your tent unless you have sought the permission of the landowner.
There are no official campsites on or near the trail south of Craster (there is a campsite at Warkworth but it is three miles off-route). You should consider this before deciding to camp.
