Does Craster Have A Play Area?

Whenever I share my blog post about the walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle, I will often receive comments from people not realising that Craster has a play area. It does indeed have a playground and it's kind of hidden away which is why I think some people don't realise it's there.

In fact it was only after I'd visited Craster a few times myself that I stumbled across it.

The playground is in a beautiful location overlooking the sea and just next to the Northumberland Coastal Path. In fact I think it may actually be right on the path.

15 Things to do at Ford & Etal

Ford and Etal is one of our favourite places to visit in Northumberland. Not far from Berwick, there are three main areas to explore (as well as a few off shoots). It's the kind of place you could just walk around and take in the beautiful scenery/bring a picnic or spend £ visiting multiple attractions - the choice is yours. 

15 Things to do at Ford & Etal

A lot of Ford & Etal is dog-friendly and it's definitely somewhere you can feel comfortable visiting with your dog. We drove between Ford and Heatherslaw (and caught the train to Etal) as they are all several miles apart. If you are keen, you could walk it.

Hulne Park, Alnwick | A Guide to Visiting

Thanks to our writer Bethanie for this post. 

Hulne Park in Alnwick has long been a favourite walking spot for my family and I. We
started walking here when my son was a baby (nine years ago!) and enjoy the space it
provides.

Hulne Park, Alnwick | A Guide to Visiting


In a nutshell, Hulne Park is located in the market town of Alnwick and makes
up part of the Northumberland Estates. Among the various walking routes, expect to
find parkland, Alnwick Abbey, a Priory and farmland.

Visiting Cragside's Formal Gardens

We have been National Trust Members for over 10 years now and despite visiting many, many times, I am always discovering new areas. One such area was the Formal Gardens at Cragside.

How to Find Hownsgill Viaduct

Thanks to our writer Gaia for this post featuring a scenic walk with small children, a beautiful picnic spot and tea room with free parking. 

How to Find Hownsgill Viaduct

  • Address: Howngill farm and tearooms
    Consett DH8 9AA
  • Public transport - get the bus to Consett bus station or derwentside college and join the route at Consett Telescopes which is a mile from the Hownsgill Viaduct.
  • Accessibility - this railway path is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. The climb down from the top of the viaduct is not accessible (but easy to avoid).

Ingram Valley Cafe & Riverside Walk

Ingram Valley is a beautiful place to visit in Northumberland. Expect rolling hills, riverbanks, waterfalls and winding paths alongside lots of lovely plants and wildlife. It's in a fairly remote location and it's easy to find places to stop for a picnic where you'll have the immediate area completely to yourself. 


We always usually park in Bulby's Wood. I like it here as there are toilets, lots of flat green space for a picnic and easy access to the water for paddling (read about parking at Bulby's Wood and spending the day at Ingram Valley with kids here).
