One of the most popular reasons that folks come to Ennerdale Bridge is because it forms the final leg of the Coast to Coast Walk to St Bee’s.

This 197-mile walk, which runs from Robin Hood’s Bay on the East to St. Bees and the Irish Sea on the West, was made famous by Alfred Wainwright, the well-known writer and hill walker.

What makes this coast to coast walk so special?

The coast to coast walk from Robin Hood’s Bay to St. Bee’s is quite possibly the most picturesque and beautiful of all the cross country walks in England. Crossing three National Parks you will be treated to some of the most stunning, beautiful and untouched landscapes that England has to offer – from the Pennines, to Swaldale, to the majestic mountains of the Lake District.

The village of Ennerdale Bridge is particularly fortunate to be positioned on the last leg of this most magnificent of Coastal Walks, as it is less than a mile’s distance from Ennerdale Water, the most westerly and remote of all the Lakes in the Lake District. Here you really can walk in the footsteps of Wainwright, knowing that very little has changed in the half century since he first devised the walk.

Ennerdale Bridge To St. Bee’s

This magical last leg of the walk covers 13 miles and crosses Cleator, Dent and finally ending up at the St. Bee’s on the Irish Sea. A truly fitting end to a marvellous journey.
