Things to do

Hindhope Linn is a spectacular waterfall in a quiet, enchanting dell.

To access the trail, follow the forest road past Blakehopeburnhaugh Farm. Take the path overlooking Blakehope Burn and the magical waterfall. Other features of the walk are the areas of old Scots Pine and larch, living reminders of the ancient forest of the area.

Holystone Woods, Rothbury

Holystone is tucked away in a quiet corner of Coquetdale. The peace and tranquillity of the area attracted a religious order that built a nunnery here in the twelfth century, around which Holystone village grew.

The nunnery has long gone, but the tranquil surroundings remain, offering beautiful walks.

There are waterfalls, crags and plenty of aged broadleaved woodlands which are a delight to walk in at any time of year.

Kielder Castle

Please note Kielder Castle is shut until further notice, including the main cafe. Takeaway food and drink facilities are available.
