  • Lovely walk, great for families, small play area for children, the walk goes down to the river which is especially nice in summer. My dog loves all the trails. Some recent new artwork on the way around which children love too. Great for wildlife and wild flowers.
  • It's free and it's big. On a nice day you could spend a good hour or two wandering about with the dog or kids. Look out for the fairy doors and tree art. (Squirrels and snakes!) There's a cafe and normally an ice cream truck for snacks. There's toilets and a little play park. The park is probably best suited to 4-10 year olds.
  • Nice trail through woods and beside a river. Great for a gentle family stroll, with the option for a longer walk of a few km. The walks here also link up with other paths towards Bedlington and so on. There is a cafe and public conveniences.
  • beautiful views..great place if you want to be on your own or around other people as it's big enough to go off by yourself. Plenty wildlife although i haven't seen deer I have been fortunate enough to see red squirrels.
  • Nice relaxing woodland to wander around, decent coffee shop on site too. There's a play park for kids, plenty of free parking and the public toilets were very clean.
