Local Walks and Kids Stuff

Nice close walks and activities for the kids.

Thrunton Woods

Walkers and dog lovers are very well catered near our cabins where Thrunton Woods, which is just a few miles up the A697,  has a variety of woodland treks:

Crag Top Walk (Follow green markers) 2 miles or about 45 mins

Four Crags Walk (Follow red markers) 10 miles or about 4 hours.

Unfortunately the yellow brick road has fallen into disrepair!

Details of other walks in the area can also be found here.

A further drive up the A697 will bring you towards Chillingham Castle (18.6 miles North) which is the home of the famous Chillingham white cattle and a number of ghosts featured in TV’s “Most Haunted”

For the kids (including yourself) why not try Diggerland (45.1 miles South) where you can ride, race and dig with a JCB! or newly opened at Matfen Hall is Go Ape (29.3 miles South West) – Swing and balance  through the trees, land in cargo nets and fly down zip wires. Castlemania  (12.8 miles East) in Amble has loads of activities for kids.
