Competing St Bega's Way over three days is the standard itinerary for this walk spitting the days fairly evenly. We are always happy to provide a quick quote for you if you wish to do the walk over a longer or shorter time and can recommend appropriate stages to suit your requirements.
Arrive at St. Bees and check into your accommodation.
Day 1 From St. Bees cross the coastal plain and climb easily over Dent Hill with extensive views along the coast. Descend to the charming village of Ennerdale Bridge. 10½ miles
Day 2 This is the hardest day although it begins easily with a stroll along the north shore of Ennerdale Water. Then, climbing up out of the valley, the St Bega's Way crosses the flanks of Brandreth close by Great Gable and meets the Honister Pass Road at the famous slate mine. An old miners track then takes you down to the hamlet of Rosthwaite. 14½ miles
Day 3 For the final day you follow the River Derwent and quiet western shore of Derwentwater to Portinscale. To complete the pilgrimage, you continue along the river and across the flanks of Skiddaw to reach Mirehouse and the church of St. Bega. 13 miles
Depart after breakfast.
