Unique walking experience in Alnwick

I took about a seven mile walk one afternoon through this magnificent, huge park. There are several trails of varying lengths to take, and all offer breathtaking views of field, forest and farm and the charming beauty of the Northumberland countryside.
We walked round the yellow trail at Hulne Park on a freezing February day. We took a wrong turn on the way there. It is not well sign posted, but once at the entrance it was plain sailing. The walk was interesting and varied with lots of information boards along the way. It was very quiet with only a few estate vehicles on the roads. The roads and paths were well surfaced and the routes easy to follow. A very interesting array of trees en route and an excellent viewpoint half way round where we stopped for sandwiches until it started to snow! A real hidden gem which would certainly repay another visit.
Very well tended too

Absolutely stunning park. Good choice of walks, decent in size and difficulty. The views are stunning. I have lived in Northumberland for 8 years and only found about this the other day. A bit of a hidden gem :)
Wonderful countryside views

Hulne Park is a wonderful area of park and farmland adjacent to Alnwick Castle, which is open to the public for walking and jogging. There are marked walking trails with the longest being around 6.2 miles. All the trails offer superb views over the Northumberland countryside and one can walk alongside the river and enjoy the various bridges which cross it in the park area. One can also walk to see the remains of Hulne Priory (abbey) secluded in the park. Overall it is a superb place to walk and enjoy the surroundings of the Castle and its estate.
Can't believe this is available!

What a fantastic park, available after 11 am until sunset. It is beautiful, accessible and shows Northumberland off at it's best!
