Northumberland Coast Path Passport.
This year the Northumberland Coast Path Passport has been introduced for walkers. The passport will end up being a treasured possession, a great reminder of all the places you have stopped at on route.
Many of the cafes and restaurants, shops and other businesses you will stop at along the way will have their own individual stamp and will stamp your passport for you - they are known as 'Welcome Ports'. They will also provide you with the information about the trail, the weather and public transport. Some of the businesses will also offer you a discount as a passport holder and most of them will fill up your water bottle for free.
You will need to collect at least two stamps per day to claim your official 'Northumberland Coast Path Certificate' at the end of your walk.
When we meet you at the start of your holiday we will give you a passport, there is talk of a free half pint of beer in store in Berwick upon Tweed for those who have collected at least two stamps per day during the duration of their Shepherds Walks Holiday, but we will tell you more about that when we meet you at the start of your walking holiday with us.
