A Pennine Journey Accommodation
A Pennine Journey celebrates Alfred Wainwright’s lone walk in 1938, and praise should go to the Pennine Journey Supporters Club, who made available to the Ordnance Survey the hand-drawn route maps of the route, which the Ordnance Survey duly incorporated into its Outdoor Leisure and Explorer maps, thus allowing others to follow in Wainwright’s 1938 footsteps.
A Pennine Journey is a circular walk beginning/finishing at Settle. Being circular, it can, of course, be started anywhere along the route. It connects with (among others) the Coast to Coast Walk, Dales Way, Hadrian’s Wall Path, Pennine Way, and Ribble Way, and consequently shares some of the topography and geology of those paths.
For each location we give a map link to the Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 map for that location. The map can be dragged to see the progression of the path and surrounding area, and also resized to a different scale.
Pennine Journey Route: Please refer to the Pennine Journey Mileage and Services Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the Ordnance Survey map for that location can be opened and dragged (and re-sized) to follow the route.

Notes on A Pennine Journey Accommodation
We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Pennine Journey Mileage and Services Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.

A Pennine Journey Restaurants and Pubs
Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Pennine Journey, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
Please refer to the table below for pubs, restaurants and other services along the Pennine Journey.
