Cumbria Things to Do: 84 reviews and 268 photos
A long distance coastal path of 150 miles, starting at Sandside, near Milntorpe and ending near Getna, north of Carlisle. The route takes you around the many estuaries of Morecambe Bay and then heads over towards Barrow and up the Cumbrian Coast.
This walk can be made in different stages, enabling you to stop off and explore some of Cumbria's lesser known towns and villages. Although much of this walk is off the beaten track, it parallels the Cumbrian Coastal and the Furness train line in many places.
The estuaries provide excellent feeding grounds for many varieties of birds and are an ornithologists paradise. Further west and north are glorious sand dunes, open expanses of sandy beaches and (on a clear day) views to the Isle of Man, Ireland, the Solway Firth and the faint line of the Scottish hills. Behind, lie the Lakeland Fells, creating an altogether memorable scene.
Not to be missed!!
Directions: Begins in the south, near Milnthorpe and ends north of Carlisle, on the Solway Firth.
