Welcome to the website of the Haltwhistle Walking Festival. Walking Festivals based in Haltwhistle began in 2003 and have taken place twice yearly every since.


Bookings There are still places on most walks; a few are full and others are booking up fast, so don’t delay if you want to join us.

18th April:Two places just available on Spring Lambs and Farmhouse Tea.  6 walks are fully booked: Cold Fell, Cross Fell, Castle Carrock Fell, Woodland Birds, and History

To go on a waiting list, phone 01434 322025


There is also exciting news for this year. A new version of the popular Haltwhistle Challenge returns - this one for walkers only. It will be on July 5th, 2014. The route has been improved and we hope that many of you will come and walk with us. Go to the Challenge pages for full details. There will be a guided half Challenge on the same day.


More news - Mike’s Book The Diary of a Walker is now available. Many of you will remember Michael Bell, who was a regular in the Festival as a back-up and walked with the Haltwhistle walkers on Wednesdays.  He died after a short illness early last year.  We then discovered that he had kept meticulous records of all his walks. Brian and Maureen Hart have edited these and produced a delightful book with routes and photographs.  You may order one and collect it at the festival.  Price £10.  Phone 01434 3232025 to reserve your copy.
