North Tyne

Twisting rivers, enchanted forests and dramatic rolling hills make up the twinned valleys of the North Tyne and Rede.

Pennine Way

Pennine Way

Explore the remote beauty of these valleys seemingly on top of the world, here in Northumberland’s southwest.

Visit age-old villages like Elsdon, Redesdale’s historic capital. The largest settlement in the National Park, Elsdon makes the ideal base for striking off on one of many walks around the countryside here.

The bodies of those slain in the infamous and bloody Battle of Otterburn between English and Scots armies in 1388 are reputedly buried at Elsdon’s 14th century church.

The River Tyne

The River Tyne

The breathtaking wilderness here is a haven for wildlife. Rare red squirrel can be glimpsed in the forests here. Look out for otters along the clear rivers and burns.

Take the children to Falstone and its epic play park. Spread over 1.5 acres, this is a child’s dream play park with fun-generating activities from an aerial zip wire run way, tennis courts and bouldering to willow igloos, carved wooden animals plus swings and slides too.  

Enjoy a family stroll around the Riverside path and look out for the mysterious 18th century gravestone of a girl holding hands with a skeleton in the churchyard.

The annual Falstone Border Shepherds Show is a celebration of traditional rural Northumberland life. Enjoy a mix of sheepdog trials, agricultural classes and local food and crafts at this Northumberland red-letter day event.
