FAQs About The C2C Way

If you cannot spare the number of days to travel it all in one go, it is equally as good to do particular sections and then do the rest on subsequent trips.

We can advise and arrange on your logistics to your chosen start and end.

The main places you can do this are Grasmere, Patterdale, Kirkby Stephen, Richmond and Robin Hood’s Bay.

Accommodation choice is more limited and generally apply a dog supplement, although this includes blanket & food.

We ought to point out we see quite a few people set off with their dog only to pull out after a few days because the dog is suffering (cracked pads is the most common).

Although previous weather conditions are not a reliable predictor for the future:

  • April – can range from cold (often snow and frost) to warm and sunny. Season starting and so quieter, aside from Easter weekend
  • May – most popular time, for good reason. Often the driest and pleasant temperatures. Wildflowers out in full bloom, plenty of nesting birds.
  • June – sometimes wetter than May, shortest nights – you probably won’t see darkness for whole trip
  • July – similar to June but quieter in terms of walkers in the latter part of month
  • Aug – great in 2018 though can often feature rain. The Lake District is at its busiest, but nice on the fells. Heather in full purple colour
  • Sept – often the second driest after May. Autumnal colours starting to come through. Light and shadows often the best for photos. As busy as May with regards Coast to Coasters

Our holidays have a range of different options for having rest days. They are a great way to allow your feet and legs to recover, visit attractions, chill out, do another activities.

GrasmereKirkby Stephen and Richmond are the larger locations on route with a good range of facilities and things to do/see including some historical interest and quirky attractions. You can also access places not on the C2C easily from these towns.

If you would like to manage your own rest days, our team can help plan a bespoke coast to coast tour for you, just get in touch using the form above.
