Tours and Tickets by Footsteps - Walking the beauty of Northumberland
Overview
The Arty Footsteps Experience is a unique opportunity to walk, explore and draw in the Breamish Valley in Northumberland National Park. The idea behind the Experience, is to encourage the traveller to slow down and take some time to stand and stare at the landscape around them. By slowing down, you can use that time to observe in a way that an artist observes and the creativity naturally follows on. To help you draw, we provide the artist's materials you will need. To nourish you, we bring you a picnic, made up from local Northumberland produce. To nourish your soul, we share the beautiful Breamish Valley with you as we walk beside its river and explore the valley through which it flows. Jane, our artist and Patrick our guide will be with you for the whole Experience. Ingram Village Hall is our indoor base for the day if it is needed, a safe haven on a rainy day. Otherwise, the great outdoors will be our home, as you our guest walk, explore and draw on our Arty Footsteps Experience.

Six of us, all old men, did the Pilgrim's Way walk to Holy Island. Although the walk itself is an amazing experience, it was enhanced by the enthusiasm and knowledge of our guide, Patrick, whose breadth of knowledge covered not only the Anglo Saxon history of the island, but also the natural habitat and flora and fauna of the area.

We had two great experiences with Patrick - the Ingram Farm safari and the walk to Holy Island over the mudflats. Thoroughly enjoyed them both and Patrick's knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious. Would thoroughly recommend them both and we would happily do them again.

Thoroughly enjoyed guided walk of Hedgehope, Dunmoor and Linhope Spout on Wednesday, 8 September, 2021. Fabulous views of glorious Northumberland! Patrick is an excellent guide. Email to confirm walk ….. even when I was the only participant, suggested kit list so I knew exactly what to bring on the walk, easy to find start point. Patrick paced the walk appropriately with plenty of time to take in the stunning views. Patrick is very knowledgeable and shared lots of info along the walk on flowers, animals, birds and points of interest. I recommend this walk, enjoyed walk immensely and will definitely book with Footsteps again. Thank you Patrick!

A dawn walk to Holy Island. Absolutely unforgettable, unique experience, if you do nothing else, do this. The distant call of thousands of seals( like lost souls) the utter peace in a normally busy place, the knowledge of the friendly guide, a nice group, the feel of the sea bed on bare feet(not as cold as I thought) , the samphyr forest, unusual birds... . Worth a very long detour indeed to get here.

Map & Compass course - Fab day in Ingram Valley with Patrick. Learned lots of new skills, something I’ve wanted to do for years. After a full day of teaching and practice I feel confident to head out in the hills with my dog. Got my compass ordered and I’ll be set
