The Inn Way...to Northumberland is a long distance circular walk, divided into six 'day stages' ranging from 11 to 20.5 miles.
It is possible to split Stage Five of the walk (Wooler to Alwinton) in half by staying overnight at Ingram (B&B), which is approximately a 2 mile detour off 'The Inn Way' route from Greensidehill Farm down along the road through the Breamish Valley to Ingram. This will therefore create a seven-day walk, with Stage Five divided into two walks, each of which will be approximately 12 miles in length. See Accommodation Guide for more details
There are 48 pubs along 'The Inn Way... to Northumberland'. Each 'day stage' is designed to include a pub at lunchtime and the Overnight Stops offer a choice of pubs and facilities, although Stage 5 from Wooler to Alwinton does not include a pub along the way as the route heads through the remote yet beautiful landscape of the Cheviot Hills.
