Activities & Attractions

Seven miles in one direction will take you to the edge of the Northumberland National Park, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty with over 400 square miles of stunning landscapes, criss-crossed by over 700 miles of walking, biking and riding trails. It is also England��s first, and Europe’s largest, International Dark Sky Park which means that it is perfect for a spot of star gazing. On a clear night you will see stunning Meteor Showers, the Milky Way and even the Andromeda Galaxy - an astonishing 2.5 million light years away!
The dramatic beauty of the Cheviot Hills can be accessed from Wooler (7 miles) where walkers and mountain bikers can follow the routes of ancient cattle drovers, taking in Iron Age stone fortifications and traces of Bronze Age hilforts amidst the tranquil and rugged landscape. Follow the legend of St. Cuthbert with a visit to the Cuddy�������s Cave (2 miles) a short walk exploring the area around this historic feature, or alternatively join Northumberland Park Rangers for a guided walk where you will learn much about the heritage and wildlife of the area and enjoy some outstanding vistas along the way. For cycling, you will find everything from gentle low-level meanders to big hill country treks, including long-distance routes such as the Pennine Cycleway or the cycle challenges of the Wooler Wheel Hub.
For families, the Breamish Valley is a popular area with pretty river picnic spots where children can paddle, followed by a walk to the lovely waterfall at Linhope Spout where you may even spot some wild Cheviot goats along the way! Alternatively, a warm welcome awaits you at Ford & Etal Estates (8 miles) which has a super range of child friendly activities with over 20 attractions to explore, including a 15” gauge steam railway, fishing, canoeing, cycle hire and riding centre.
