What to do in Felton, Northumberland - 5 reasons to visit with kids

Welcome back to my new series exploring the towns and villages of Northumberland. Last time we paid my hometown of Cramlington a visit and today it's one of my favourite spots in Northumberland - Felton.

What to do in Felton, Northumberland - 5 reasons to visit with kids

Felton is a village in Northumberland situated halfway between Morpeth and Alnwick. It's population is just under 1000. Felton is a close community and famous visitors include Oliver Cromwell who is said to have stayed in Felton on his way to the Battle of Dunbar. Felton has an average house price of £247,156 and is a fab place to dream house shop. Here are 5 reasons to visit Felton with kids:

 

1 - Enjoy a kids picnic at The Running Fox

The Running Fox is a fantastic bakery/tearoom in the heart of the village. They offer a wonderful children's menu which includes 'The Picnic Fox'. Children can choose a sandwich, any slice of cake from the counter, a bag of crisps and a glass of milk or juice for only £5. Bargain!



2 - Feed the happiest ducks in the world

You can feed to ducks on the River Coquet outside of The Running Fox via a wooden walkway. We've always found the ducks to be super happy here and they always come and say hello.



3 - Enjoy family Sunday lunch at The Northumberland Arms

The Northumberland Arms is one of our favourite country pubs and the perfect place to get together with the family for Sunday lunch. The atmosphere is always warm and welcoming and the food is spot on.



4 - Take a walk around Swarland Wood (2 miles away)

Swarland Wood is just 2 miles away from Felton. You'll find a variety or trees, walking routes and paths plus wild flowers to enjoy. Perfect for a stroll after a Running Fox cake! Find out more here



 

5 - Northumberland Country Zoo

Not technically Felton, but Northumberland Country Zoo is right on Felton's doorstep so it had to be included. The zoo is home to farm animals, exotic species, mammals, birds, reptiles and more. Watch out for the cheeky armadillos! Entry is super reasonable too. Check out our review here.


So there you have my mini guide of what to do with the kids when visiting Felton. It really is a lovely village and worth popping by for a few hours. Let me know if you fancy visiting or if it's one of your favourites.
