The Cleveland Way was the second National Trail in England and Wales and was officially opened on 24th May 1969.
The coastal section of the Trail provides a visual feast along the dramatic North Yorkshire coastline, passing old fishing villages and lively coastal towns. Along the way there is a wealth of history and heritage to enjoy including Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle to name just a couple of the special places you’ll visit.

This itinerary is offered by Great British Walks, a company owned and run by walking enthusiasts Julie and Nick Thomas, who live in Monmouthshire, on the borders of England and Wales.
Nick and Julie have never taken it for granted that they live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and both enjoy walking in the great outdoors. The couple have spent most of their holidays walking the length and breadth of the UK, mostly on the National Trails of England, Scotland and Wales, each time discovering new highlights and lovely places for walking holidays and accommodation.
Great British Walks arrange all accommodation including breakfast, luggage transfers between overnight stops, and transfers between the accommodation and path should your overnight stay be away from the trail. They supply your route planning in the form of a Holiday Pack that includes a Trail Guide (and map, where necessary), your itinerary, accommodation directions and local interest leaflets.

En-suite or private facilities are provided wherever possible.
This 5 day tour includes 6 nights’ accommodation.
Anyone who is reasonably fit can walk the Cleveland Way. Along the coastal section the route is challenging in places. This tour is moderate and involves 5 days of between 10 and 19 km each day.
The Yorkshire Coast is a food lover’s paradise.
With an unrivalled fishing heritage you can be sure that the seafood will be unlike anything you’ve ever tasted anywhere else. Seafront ice cream parlours are always a popular attraction and of course no visit to the Yorkshire Coast is complete without sampling the finest fish and chips in the world.
