A week with HF at Alnmouth in Northumbria

23rd to 30th July 2011


HF Holidays have several centres in the UK.  The one at Alnmouth is on the east coast north of Newcastle.  There are a number of uninhabited sandy beaches with undulating terrain inland.  The weather kept dry and the sun shone occasionally but there was usually a cool breeze coming off the North Sea.  Transport to the various walk start points was part of the package as was dinner, bed, breakfast and a packed lunch. Entertainment was provided by the walk leaders in the evening, usually in the form of a quiz or dancing.  The walks (all with a leader) are in three grades, easy, medium and hard.  There are two itineraries and they alternate each week.  Both appear to include beach walks and inland walks.
