Druridge Bay is a living landscape



The park is centred on a lake with surrounding meadows and woods which has been restored from an old opencast coal mine and is maturing into a very pleasant landscape for walks and picnics. In addition, 3 miles of high-quality beach and sand-dunes offer ample space to get away from it all. Facilities include a visitor centre with information, toilets, a cafe and gift shop (open most weekends and school holidays), activities, water sports, bird-watching, walks, orienteering and cycling.

  • We visited here when staying nearby as a great place to walk the dog. It is a great park and lake area which borders the fabulous beach so a superb dog friendly beautiful area. 
  • A great place to stop for a walk along the beach without any crowds. Ample parking and if you prefer there is a large lake to walk around. We went for the beach though as you can't beat gazing out to ...  more »
  • Remote,vast expance of beutifull sandy beach. This would be bliss sunbathing in the sand dunes,on a hot summers day. Take picnic and drinks as no shops handy.

  • Great location right next to the long curving clean sandy beach of Druridge Bay. The lake is ideal for sailing, windsurfing and canoeing, especially for those learning the sport. We were there recently to teach a young lad windsurfing. There is a small launching/access fee to use the lake per person or pay for a family which is cheaper. Free parking now means you can enjoy the walks around the lake without charge. Visitor centre and cafe are there too. I'm sure it's a great place for bird and wildlife watching.
  • Great location for the beach. Toilets are in the visitor centre but could be a bit nicer! Nice lake and small park here too. Cafe reasonable prices. Beach clean and quiet even on a sunny day.
  • Excellent walking area and great just to take the kids on a beach many many hours to fill in just around the park itself and on top of that you have the wonderfully beautiful Northumberland coast line to see up close Amble is also just a nice walk along the coast
  • Gorgeous, one of Northumberlands jewels, lakeside walks, golden sandy, free parking (last time we went) reasonable cafe, a fully day out - without needing to spend much
  • Great place for families and there's plenty of dog walkers. It's a lovely walk around the lake and it even offers kayaking too. It's also only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful Northumberland coast. The beach is nice and clean and you can sit back taking in the view enjoying the horses ride up and down also with a vast stretch of sand you'll easily find a spot. Also parking is now FREE!
