  • Nice easy walks for kids and dogs. Rather than park in the visitors centre try the lay by opposite the Stannington turnoff (A1 southbound). Take the turn off and get back on the A1 southbound. The lay by is quite big. Park up and walk back up the main road about 200 yards and it is sign posted. It's busy on the road but once into the woods there is a lovely walk along the river. An impressive railway bridge on route.
  • Great place to go with the kids (and dog). Lots of different paths to walk and little areas for kids to investigate. With a park, play field and a cafe we had hours of fun
  • Plessey Woods is a gem of a place within easy reach of many of the communities in South East Northumberland and Tyneside. Parking is free and usually sufficient spaces with overflow car parking available on busier days. A variety of paths and trails take you from the main visitor centre down to the River Blyth and Pegwhistle Burn with horses, 7 cycles permitted on the main track down to the river. Disabled access on the main track is also generally good. Minor paths provide a wealth of adventure for those willing to explore. Plessey boasts an abundance of flora and fauna with bluebells and wild garlic a particular attraction during early spring. Visit on a quiet day and you may even see a red squirrel, fox or roe deer. Although the visitor centre and cafe are generally only open at weekends visitors can enjoy a good selection of reasonably priced drinks and snacks.
  • Lovely walks plenty for the kids to do . And it's now free parking
  • We love it there. Great for any age including the big kids of our family hahaha
