We have been supporting the Haltwhistle Walking Festival for many years. It is a great community enterprise run by friendly and sociable people. Thanks to you, we have explored remote parts of Northumberland (such as the Wilds of Wanney!) in the company of like-minded walkers. Looking forward to fresh adventures in 2020 and beyond.

I've been coming to the Haltwhistle Festival for quite a few years now and always look forward to it. From treading in the footsteps of Wainwright or the Border Reivers to wandering along the banks of the South Tyne or discovering England's newest mountain, the walks are always well planned and imaginative. Together with the wonderful wild landscape and the exceptional friendliness of the group it makes for a most enjoyable holiday, well worth my 250 mile drive to get there.
It is well worth our 280 mile journey from West Wales to take part in the Haltwhistle walking festival. A stunning part of the country. Superb well organised walks. Mountains of local knowledge and fabulous company. Try to keep us away. Go once and you will keep going back.
