A glorious Autumn walk through this beautiful estate owned by the Duke of Northumberland. A choice of walks of varying length and difficulty taking in the views of the Northumbrian countryside as well as Hulne Abbey, Brizlee Tower and the wonderful iron gates to the Remembrance Garden at the top of the hill.
Lovely Walks in the Park

Lovely trails in the park, although perhaps a bit too much paving. Trails were wide, which is good for a group. Nice views and a gentle climb up to the ruins of Hulne Priory, which are very well maintained and made a picturesque lunch spot. Continued our walk through the woods, seeing plenty of pheasants, and even a flock of sheep totally blocking the road. A bit of a climb to Brizlee Tower but the view was worth the effort.
Beautiful park. So peaceful as no cars allowed apart from estate managing cars. Amazing trees. There are three waymarked walks, one is 6.2 miles and the other two just over 4 miles.
English coutry side at it's best

Part of the Northumberland estates.There are several way marked walks through and around the estate, we decided on the longest, Over 6 miles, walking through open parkland, through forestry workings, along a river valley,and up to a beautiful old ruined Abbey, with wonderful views across the valley. Words of warning . You cannot drive in the park,but the entrance is only 500 metres from the castle main gate, and there are no dogs allowed.
a great walk

Had planned to visit this lovely park, it's free and large enough to encompass those who would like a longer walk. The grounds are lovely and very peaceful. We walked the red route and visited the ruined abbey its a truly charming place. Technically not open until 11 although the chap on the gate let us in, not a jobsworth. Parking is plentiful just outside the gate
