Pennine Way
268 challenging miles along England's most famous trail

The Pennine Way is Britain’s first and best known National Trail, and stretches for roughly 268 miles from the Derbyshire Peak District to the Scottish Borders, maintaining a high and often wild course along the backbone of England. The route traverses a wide variety of terrain, from the gritstone moorlands of Derbyshire through the limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales, to the wild, remote final stretch through the Cheviot Hills to the finishing point at Kirk Yetholm.

Walk Information

The Pennine Way is Britain’s first and best known National Trail, and stretches for roughly 270 miles from the Derbyshire Peak District to the Scottish Borders, maintaining a high and often wild course along the backbone of England. The route traverses a wide variety of terrain, from the gritstone moorlands of Derbyshire through the limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales, to the wild, remote final stretch through the Cheviot Hills to the finishing point at Kirk Yetholm. It offers a superb and ever changing landscape of hills, moors, valleys and villages. The route is traditionally walked from south to north, from to Kirk Yetholm, and most guidebooks describe it this way.

The Pennine Way is a serious challenge, and you must be fully equipped to meet it, and unless you are fit and an experienced long-distance walker, you should not tackle the Pennine Way, certainly not alone. It is important that your boots are broken-in, and that you are able to carry a rucksack with your requisites for one or two days. Most people undertaking the walk in one go take 2 – 3 weeks to complete it, but many people choose to do a section at a time. The usual time required for a non-stop walk is 17 days. The route attracts thousands of walkers each year, and yet some do not get beyond the second day, usually because fitness and stamina have been over-estimated, and the weight of personal belongings required has also been over-estimated!

Brigantes Baggage Couriers have helped hundreds of walkers to achieve the completion of the walk - also to enjoy it without having to carry a heavy backpack, knowing that warm and dry clothing awaits them at the end of each day. Our courier service is the only service which will provide you with door to door baggage transfers, from Edale at the start, all the way to the end in Kirk Yetholm, by using our own vehicles and personnel, thereby ensuring reliability.

  1. I have just completed the C2C walk and I feel I must thank you all at Brigantes for making my trip so enjoyable. The accommodation that you booked for me was entirely appropriate for my needs. Each of my hosts went out of their way to ensure that my overnight stay was as comfortable as possible. My bag was delivered to each location well before my arrival and picked up each morning around 9.30, which meant that my breakfast was not disturbed!

    I have now used Brigantes for the last three years for both the C2C and the Pennine Way and I would certainly recommend them for both booking accommodation and transporting luggage between overnight stops. Thank you Annette for all of your help and I am sure I will be in touch in 2019.

  2. I would like to thank Brigantes for the smooth organisation of my trip, the efficient and invisible baggage transfer and foremost for the very good choice of accomodation. The proprietors always spoke well of Brigantes and how reliable you are. Having said that, I had twelve days of walking with remarkably little rain, coming down only during the second half of my walk, therefore leaving me dry altogether when crossing the Lakes. I had great holidays.

  3. just want to say a BIG thank you to all the team at Brigantes .me and my girlfriend have just done the pennine way in august and all stress free on our luggage transfer each day by the Brigantes team.i would highly recommend Brigantes and will definitely use them again .
    thank you again Paul Gath & Michele Delaney.

  4. Just back from walking the middle section of the Pennine Way. As with my last trip, Brigantes’ arrangements worked perfectly. The quality of the accomodation and the baggage transfers were very impressive. Thanks very much.

  5. A friend and I have just come back from walking the Howgills and Limestone Trail – 76 miles from Kirkby Stephen to Settle in a very roundabout way. Brigantes booked our accommodation, transferred our bags, arranged taxis at each end and altered their times when needed. Their organisation was brilliant and all the accommodation was fine – couldn’t fault any of it. I would recommend them without hesitation and use them for arranging walks in the future. We had a great week.

  6. Many thanks to Brigantes for organising our accommodation and baggage transfer on our Yorkshire Wolds Way trek in June. As usual the service was first class.

  7. Many thanks for helping with our baggage transfers. Our holiday had to be cut short due to feet problems- not unusual I’d imagine!
    But we had a great experience, made even better by you taking the load for us – it made a huge difference
    You were so helpful and accommodating and I would definitely recommend your services…

    Many thanks

  8. I used Brigantes to carry my camping kit when walking a section of the Pennine Way from Hebden Bridge to Horton in Ribblesdale recently and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who doesn’t want to carry a heavy/bulky pack. They accommodated me at short notice and were friendly and helpful at all times. Their fees were also very reasonable. My kit was always waiting for me when I arrived at my various destinations. 10/10

  9. We completed the Dales Way in late June in unaccustomed heat. We were well supported in completing this otherwise (heat notwithstanding) relatively easy long distance walk by the luggage transfers and choices of accommodation that Brigantes arranged for us. The walk takes in Wharfe Dale and Ribble Dale which are both beautiful, with a day in genuine upland crossing the national watershed. We had a fine selection of pubs along the way and particularly enjoyed the isolation of Swathghyll Farm, with the supported self catering they offer as well as the B&B’s in Sedbergh (Daleslea) and Kendal (Bridge House) all three of which were very well appointed. The response we got from all places we stayed at was helpful and welcoming so we were able to get on with the business of enjoying our holiday.

  10. Our second week with Brigantes on the Pennine Way went very well. We were very impressed with the Middle Studfold Farm, near Horton in Ribblesdale, they really went out of their way to make us comfortable. The Strathmore Arms at Holwick was also very hospitable and again they couldn’t do enough to make us welcome. The luggage transfer went very well and we were pleased to have the secure parking in Kirby Malham. All the accomodation was to a very high standard and, of course, it is good to be able to dry off and have a warm and comfortable night’s rest as well as being able to get a decent meal every night after a days walking. We were using the Harvey polyethylene maps during the walk and sometimes the small scale made it difficult to find where the way went and we did go wrong on the Bowes loop turning left after the bridge at the start rather than right. The OS map shows the path exactly but they are difficult to use on the path – although if you have a smartphone, which we don’t, you can download the map. We had welcome stops at Tan Hill – we were quite wet – and Twaithe. Otherwise the provided packed lunches saw us through the day. More next year…

  11. I have just returned from walking the South section of the Pennine Way. The itinery Brigantes provided worked very well and the baggage transfer arrangements were excellent. I carried some pieces of china in my bag for the last couple of days with perfect confidence that it would arrive home unbroken. The bed and breakfast places I stayed in were all fine and the landladies and landlords were very welcoming. I had a great week-thanks very much. I’ll be back to do more another year.

  12. I’m just back from doing the 2nd section of the Pennine Way (Horton to Alston) with 5 friends and want to say that yet again Brigantes provided a seamless, hassle free service. As mentioned by others on this page, it’s reassuring to know that the luggage transfer is being handled by such a capable team, leaving us to concentrate on the walking.

    Many thanks to all at Brigantes.

  13. Just finished the south part of the Pennine Way, very poor weather, but what a happiness to know our luggage will be waiting for us, all dry !
    The service of Brigantes has been absolutely perfect !

  14. We walked the penines way from Gargrave to Dufton in april 2017.
    Thanks to brigantes, no lugage problem !
    Despite the cold weather, (a bit of snow, a lot of wind.. ) we enjoyed the walk very much.
    We stopped in Youth hotel in Malham, Dufron and Hawes (Malham is particularly lovely).
    Of course, we enjoyed our stay in Keld lodge, for the place, the view, the food… ( http://www.keldlodge.com/
    The women only place in Horton in ribbelsdale (http://www.hortonwhc.org.uk/) is very lovely too.
    The pub in forest in Teesdale is nice, and the walk from there to Dufton was my favorite part.
    Thanks for the good work with the luggage, who made our walk possible and enjoyable !

  15. Thanks for your great baggage transfer when we walked the North of England Way. Even though we had gaps due to friends moving the baggage or staying more than one night in a location all worked well.

    We stayed in 4 youth hostels Eskdale, Coniston ,Windermere and Helmsley. All were fine we enjoyed Windermere the most only because it was a beautiful clear day when we arrived and the views were amazing.

    Other notable and exceptional stopovers were The Barn tea room in Hutton le Hole and The Horseshoe Inn in Levisham.

    We stayed in Hawes for 3 nights using the train from Dent to Garsdale and then the exceptional Little White Bus and vv. Also used the LWB to get to and from Aysgarth great service run by great people.

    It was a very enjoyable well signed route as it took us over a number of paths like the Dale’s Way, Pennine Bridleway and the Pennine Way. We used the Tabular Hills Way to get from Helmsley to Scarborough. David Maugham’s route retains its charm ad challenge.

  16. I wanted to say thank you to Brigantes for organising baggage transfer on part of my recent long distance walk. Overall, I walked from Greenhead to North Warwickshire, but had my bag transferred between Horton in Ribblesdale and Glossop.
    Even though I was travelling ‘the wrong way’ from north to south, Brigantes arranged transfer quickly and efficiently at a reasonable price. It is so nice to arrive at a YHA, weary from a long day’s walk, and there is one’s bag waiting!
    Thanks again.

  17. Very many thanks for moving my luggage so efficiently during my recent Pennine Way walk from Middleton-in-Teesdale to Kirk Yetholm. I booked the accommodation myself but it was wonderful to have you miraculously moving my stuff every day. I was particularly pleased that you were able to deliver luggage to Cocklawfoot Farm (half way between Byrness and Kirk Yetholm). In my opinion there’s no alternative to moving on each day, in addition, Christina at Cocklawfoot Farm made me feel especially welcome and even transported me back up to the Way by Landrover in the morning – no need to struggle to regain lost height!

    Other particularly enjoyable stops (for me and my dog) were Alston House, the Cheviot Hotel in Bellingham and the Farm House in Kirk Yetholm.

    We’ll be back!

  18. We received the usual seamless and efficient service we have come to expect from you.

    We were very happy with Alston House as a starting point, as this was where we stayed when we finished our stint on the Pennine Way last year, a fact of which you would have been aware. I was even allocated the same room as I had had last year!

    We arrived at Four Wynds Guest House in Greenhead in the afternoon of 2nd June to find it shut up and deserted, so phoned the owned of Bush Nook in Gilsland, as arranged. He came to get us very quickly and immediately made us feel very welcome. We felt that we had had a narrow escape with Four Wynds as from the outside it looked small and undistinguished. Bush Nook, on the other hand, was probably the best place we stayed at on our trip, and I hope that you are able to make use of it extensively for clients in the future. We had a meal cooked on the premises in a dining room which we shared with about 12 other residents, meeting some interesting people (mostly walkers) in the process.

    The Twice Brewed Inn had been refurbished since the last time we stayed there three years ago, and indeed the refurbishment was still in progress. My room was fine, but the bathroom very small, rather like being in a cabin on the ferry to Spain or France. Food, drink and service were all fine, but they got tied up in all sorts of knots trying to sort out our separate bills.

    We were given a very warm welcome at the Lyndale Guest House in Bellingham, and a choice of chocolate bar when we left! It was nice to have rooms downstairs for a change, and it was also very welcome to have accommodation which was actually on the Pennine Way.

    Forest View in Byrness was basic but fine, and it was nice to be in the same room for two consecutive nights. I had not appreciated the subtle difference between having a private and ensuite bathroom, and wonder if the ensuite rooms were already fully booked when we made our bookings through you? The fact that there was no television was made up for on our first night there at least by the arrival of several locals in the bar…Colin and Joyce have obviously made it their aim to support the Pennine Way come what may, including providing transport to and from Trows Farmhouse (a 30 mile round trip) for which they had to obtain permission from the colonel of the Otterburn camp to use the army roads, and have turned what used to be the youth hostel in Byrness into a reasonably comfortable haven for walkers doing the Pennine Way. The food they produced was tasty and filling, and their bar was well stocked. Incidentally, please note that it is 2.3 miles from Windy Gyle to Trows Farm rather than 1.5 miles, and it took us an hour to return to the Pennine Way when we were dropped at Trows Farm on the morning of the final day; it was a relentless uphill climb during which we ascended 340m, which was a somewhat tiring start to the day…

    Finally, the Border Hotel was just what we needed at the end of the trip, providing us with our free half pint and certificate, while a local customer was most eager to take our photo under the pub sign proclaiming it to be the “End of the Pennine Way”. We had a good dinner there, and they were very helpful in booking us taxis to get to our individual destinations. My only complaints are that the TV in my room was not working, and they were not very well informed about taxi fares to the destinations we wanted to go to (Galashiels and Berwick upon Tweed).

  19. Thank you Brigantes for a flawless baggage service on our walk last week from Edale to Horton in Ribblesdale. It makes for a more enjoyable walk and we will certainly use you again when we do the next stage.

  20. We had a wonderful walk, Horton-in-Ribblesdale to Haltwhistle. We enjoyed the landscape, the stunning views and the satisfied feeling in our body after a day rambling. The stay in the B&B’s was very pleasant and we were welcomed by very friendly owners. Thank you very much for the organisation.

    1. Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted you enjoyed your walk on the Pennine Way and look forward to being of assistance again in the future.

      Best Wishes,

      Annette

  21. Thanks very much for a perfect organisation of my walk from Dufton to Jedburgh. Good b&b’s, nice people, useful information and of course the timely luggage transfer. Taxi pickup from Dere Street went well. It was fantastic. Thanks again. Carry Pannekeet, April 27 2016

    1. Thank you Carry, we are so pleased everything went well on your Pennine Way walk, and look forward to organising one of our other walks for you in the future!

  22. We were both very happy about our holiday on the Pennine Way as everything worked out so well, we had lovely accomodation at all the places thanks to your choice, and also the baggage transfer went very smoothly. No need to worry, it was a perfect time.

  23. Just thought I’d send you some feedback on my first few days of walking last month.

    I hugely enjoyed it and it was very reassuring to know that you were handling the bookings and the luggage transfer each day. All I had to think about was the walking, which was a luxury in itself given the busyness of everyone’s lives these days.

    All your arrangements worked flawlessly, and all of the places that I stayed in were notable for the warmth of the welcome and the friendly hospitality from the owners and staff. Particularly notable were the lovely bedroom with a huge bay window at the Angeldale; the overall top notch excellence and luxury of the Tempest Arms; the friendliness of the proprietor at Windy Harbour Farm, who collected me from the end of the walk after my first day, and cheerfully delivered me back to the same spot next morning after breakfast; and the hospitality of the proprietors at Wellcroft House, who sat me and two other walkers on their beautiful terrace with a large pot of tea on arrival, and who drove us all to the pub and back in the evening.

    Many thanks for arranging and enabling such a wonderful and memorable week.
