You will meet us when you start and/or pass through our home town of Kirkby Stephen.

It is our team who move your bags daily and our friendly drivers you will ride with if you take our passenger transfers.

You will also be dealing with people who have done the route – in all forms including cycling, walking and running – so can give you lots of tips, advice and suggestions.

We’re always available, before and throughout your trip, to answer any questions you might have, handle any and all queries, even to deal with the rare emergency issue. If you take a guided package, your guide will be an expert on leading groups and on the Coast to Coast and will have spoken with you beforehand.


How Can We Help You?

Contact us to take advantage of our walking, running, and cycling packages. These packages are fully bespoke – we will arrange the trip to your schedule and specific requirements or criteria.

With these full packages, whether you want a guided or unguided experience,we make it a seamless experience and ensure you have no worries. We create your bespoke trip, book you into superb, friendly accommodation, give you a comprehensive Info Pack, Maps and gpx files, as well as be on hand all time before you start to answer/provide anything else you may need (including advice or tickets and hotels for pre and post Coast to Coast activities and stays). Then during the walk we ‘magically’ move your bags, can give you a lift if injured/ill, securely look after your car, take you to the start and back from the finish and be available for any queries or assistance you may need. We will also see you as you pass along and check you are okay.

For those who have already booked their own accommodation or who are camping/hostelling then we also provide individual services catering to your trip. This includes daily bag transfers, secure parking spaces and lifts to the start and from the finish where appropriate..
