If you decide to bunk at the Eden Valley camp site (Mains farm) 
You won't find a nicer camp site the owners Robert and Julie are fantastic....
Facilities are excellent too.... Nice walk along the river close by (ancient church/laceys caves folly/AND Neolithic stone circle 'Long Meg'  lead mining museum at Killhope close too)
As well as fantastic food and ale at the Fetherstone arms in the village.
Let me know if you want any more info Jan

So, it seems the planning bit is more or less finished, hope it survives first contact with reality in mid-August 2016.

I've traced the route along Hadrian's Wall, down through the southwest corner of North Pennines (Alston and the Killhope museum) and again south through Yorkshire Dales (places around Hawes and a trek up Whernside from Ribblehead Viaduct), then back up to Flamborough via York and Stamford Bridge, north through Whitby and a stopover at the cliffs near Staithes.

Looking forward to the trip a lot. Thanks to Icey and Redwinch for their contribution, see you at LATP fnky

Quirky BUT fab ...gate from the campsite leads down into the fantastic spot of Staithes Village )

Hmm, fossil fuel burning and fossil collecting looks like a good match - kids would love that. Is that somewhere along the cost at Port Mulgrave, off Cleveland Way?

The Trig 49 campsite looks nice as well, thanks for the tips!
