Wainwright's Coast to Coast
The Wainwright's Coast to Coast is one of the world’s great walks and it passes directly Kirkby Stephen Hostel! The Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk, named after Alfred Wainwright, passes through the town of Kirkby Stephen and past our doorstep and hence we make a perfect overstop stop as you make your way your way from Shap to Kirkby Stephen.
The Wainwright's Coast to Coast gives the perfect snapshot of England and some of the most picturesque villages, lakes, mountains and moors. Wainwright's Coast to Coast crosses the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors National Parks between two coasts and 191 miles of footpath together to create the ultimate long distance walk in England. It may not be the longest or toughest walk but it more than makes up for it in quality.
