Coach Holidays to St-Bees Cumbria – St Bees is Cumbria’s most westerly point and is home to a large sandy beach and red sandstone cliffs. As the only Heritage Coast between Scotland and Wales. it has an abundance of wildlife, spectacular scenery and despite being a popular holiday destination for more than 150 years, a laid back village atmosphere.
St Bees also marks the start of the Wainwright Coast to Coast Walk, a 190 mile route which ends on the east coast. Although only a few miles from the Lake District National Park, because St Bees is off the beaten track it enjoys the benefits of the the Lakes without the crowds of the more popular areas. It’s therefore an ideal base from which to tour both the Western Lakes and the many attractions along the west coast.
We use the Seacote Hotel, which is perfectly situated on the edge of the breathtaking Lake District National Park.
St Bees is blessed with a vast expanse of red sand studded with rock pools and at the foot of the small moraine cliffs there is a magnificent shingle bank composed of dozens of rock varieties sloping down to the sand. The most popular beach, Seacote, lies at the north end of the bay. The smaller Seamill beach is accessed via the railway bridge and narrow footpath.
