Enjoyed the trip a whole lot more with organising left to Packhorse .
Wanted to challenge myself to a 7 day full C2C . From first contact Packhorse were helpful and professional. Mark ( the proprietor) being an avid trail runner himself and great knowledge of the route suggested a breakdown of the segments . It all worked out well . The staff were all friendly and helpful and accommodation top notch .
Would book again.

An unforgettable and beautiful long distance walk right here in the UK!
Aug 2021
If you have a passion for walking and the great outdoors then this is the holiday for you! My husband and I walked the full route St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay in August this year and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! C2C Packhorse were efficient and reliable throughout, and the standard of accommodation was, in the main, exceptional for this type of holiday. Although self guided, we inevitably bumped into many of the same faces each day and often stayed in the same accommodation. The camaraderie was wonderful, and even on the occasional damp day, the thought of a clean warm bed and satisfying meal at the end of the day was all that was needed! If you are in any doubt at all about booking a future trip don't be, you won't regret it.

Good for baggage transfer
Sep 2021
We did a self-organised coast to coast walk rather than a packhorse package but used packhorse to transfer our suitcases from hotel to hotel. This meant we could walk with just our day packs. Pick up and delivery all went perfectly. A good way to walk!

A Great Experience
Aug 2021 • Friends
I have walked it twice with the help of Packhorse who booked the accommodation. The varied scenery is wonderful and when you have completed it there is a very satisfying feeling of something worthwhile having been achieved.
The right footwear and kit is essential. Do some long training walks incorporating hills before you go. The walk is challenging but doable. I am 72 with two replacement hips.
I have no hesitation in recommending Packhorse/Sherpa Vans ( now merged) in helping to organise your trip.

Brilliant Holiday!
Aug 2021
A friend & I walked half the Coast to Coast (Self-guided St Bees to Kirkby Stephens over 7 days) as the first ever long distance walk we’ve done. It was brilliant, whilst of course, being a tricky challenge too. Packhorse was recommended by another friend who’s done 10 similar walks. The accommodation was all either first rate or outstanding and was refreshingly diverse in style, including delightfully varied B&Bs, pubs and hotels. The B&B hosts & hotel staff were helpful & friendly as were the other walkers with conditions plus had enough first aid supplies for a small hospital, but Packhorse didn’t charge extra for my 2nd (large!) bag. I’d recommend travelling with just one though, as we usually needed to take the bags to our rooms ourselves (which we did know beforehand), and used probably less than 25% of what I’d brought! Communication with Packhorse was easy, by email or phone & any queries were dealt with pretty quickly & easily. Having their walk guide book and the GPX files they sent that I uploaded to my phone (using Gaia & also Ordnance Survey maps downloaded to my phone) was invaluable to ensure we didn’t stray from our route, or on occasion, found the path again quickly on the occasions we took a slightly wrong turn.

Peter who drove us from the car park to the start of the trail at St Bees was fantastic too. He was very easy going & friendly as well as amazingly helpful and knowledgeable. It made for an excellent start to our walk.

We had a stress-free, brilliant holiday. I’ve already recommended Packhorse to several others!

excellent personal service and advice
Jul 2021
Mark Sandamas and his team take great pride in giving a most professional and personal service. They were excellent in helping us to plan and sort out our walking trip. They answered queries promptly. Our luggage was delivered to the next stay without any problems. This was the 2nd walking holiday arranged by them and we are planning to book with C2C Packhorse again for next year. We have no hesitation in recommending Packhorse to anyone else

A wonderful experience.
Jun 2021
I recently completed my Coast to Coast walk with C2C Packhorse. From starting to plan my walk with them to finishing the walk they were friendly, organised and helpful throughout. I changed my itinerary twice and it wasn't a problem. In the lead up to the walk they kept in touch and made helpful suggestions about preparation and what to bring. During the walk everything went perfectly. My bags were moved without a hitch and all of the places I stayed were lovely and in a number of cases outstanding. I would, without hesitation recommend them to anyone planning to walk the Coast to Coast.

Guided Coast to Coast Walk
Jun 2021
Excellent guide with passion for the outdoors and the National Parks. Behind the scenes organisation seemed well planned. Some of the overnight stays were excellent, others average. Most people at overnight stops were helpful and majority did all they could to make you welcome. A good experience with some superb views and interesting information about the areas we passed through.
If I ever return solo and self guided I will definitely plan longer days walking the less scenic sections of the walk between the National Parks.

Excellent advice and support
Jun 2021
We were given a 60th birthday present from my son and daughter-in-law to do part of the coast to coast walk in the Lake District organised by C2C Packhorse. When the details arrived for walk and accommodations everything was meticulously planned to fine detail.

All 4 B & B accommodations were excellent with very good sized rooms, clean and COVID secure. We didn’t have to ask for anything extra as everything was provided. .We were told the breakfast times and each accommodation had excellent breakfast with local produce. The staff couldn’t have done enough for us and all with a friendly smile.

C2C Packhorse were excellent throughout and our luggage was always waiting for us at the next stop. I cannot recommend them enough and will be using them in the future for the remaining stages of the coast to coast walk!

Huge thank you to Mark and his team!

A memorable trip
Jun 2021
Very impressed and thoroughly recommend all coast to coast walkers to use C2C Packhorse.

I walked the first three legs with my wife in June and both of us loved it!! We are very thankful for having the great support of C2C Packhorse throughout.

Mark’s team are very knowledgeable and provided an excellent service on all aspects of our walk.

All the accommodation was excellent, convenient, welcoming and Covid-19 safe. The baggage transfers are seamless and our bags always got the accommodation before us.

Using C2C Packhorse took all of the stress out of the organisation and allowed us to focus on the walk. If you’re thinking about using C2C Packhorse just do it you will not be disappointed!!

All credit to Mark and his team for helping us organise a memorable trip!!

We will definitely be using Packhorse to complete the remaining sections of the coast to coast route!!
