View of St Bees Bay from Seamill Beach

An idyllic village perfect for coastal cliff top walking holidays, beautiful St Bees on the Cumbria Coast is famously the start of the Coast to Coast Walk and contains award-winning shingle and sandy beach bays. Peaceful and just a stones' throw from the Lake District National Park border and Ennerdale, pretty St Bees is ideal for that special romantic getaway and contains a small selection of restaurants and a choice of fine inns.

Ancient sites in St Bees include the 400 year old St Bees School and Priory of St Mary and St Bega founded around 1120 and the coastal village makes the perfect base for car free touring, with trains from St Bees station running direct to Carlisle and along the Cumbrian coast south to Lancaster and beyond. The famous 'St Bees Man', a remarkably well-preserved body found in an archaeological dig in 1981 is believed to be that of a 14th century knight. The body was found in a lead coffin and astounded scientists who are still unsure how the remains have stayed in such excellent condition. View an exhibition dedicated to the St Bees Man at the Priory Church.

The town attracts walkers all year round looking to head out on to the 190 mile Coast to Coast Trail which pushes west to Robin Hood's Bay on the Yorkshire coast. Whether you're looking for an idyllic coastal getaway or a walking stopover, book St Bees accommodation online with Iknow.
