 Halty Bear Greeting the Troops on Day 1 of the 2022 Festival

IMG 0283a

Our 2022 Festival has now finished but it's never too early to think about next year.

Our showpiece 1-day walk will be to visit Cauldron Snout. You will need a head for heights and nimble feet but this spectacular day out is one not to be missed.

Our long distance, 5-day walk takes in St Oswald’s Way. Follow in the footsteps of a 7th century king of Northumbria who was closely connected to the monks of Lindisfarne and enjoy the differing landscapes of Northumberland.

Other walks include:
• Bolam Crags and Shaftoe Crags
• Muggleswick
• Rothley Castle
• Rothbury
• Colwell and Hallington Reservoirs                                                                              

Put the dates in your diary and keep an eye on our website for more details.

You can follow the Festivals on our Facebook page.

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.


Ann & Bernard, Newcastle upon Tyne

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.


Sue, Gloucestshire

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.

Those of you who walk often with us will know that we are always coming accross a giant obstacle - The River Tyne. On so many of our walks, we have to find a way of crossing it! We have seen it in all its moods, and in every type of weather. It is always a treat, a fascinating and beautiful river. One of our walkers, Geoff Chrisp, has been so inspired by the Bonny Tyne that he has created a website. We are sure you would love the opportunity to share his walker's eye view of this great north east landmark - so please visit Geoff's website at River Tyne
