Explore the North Tyne

The North Tyne Valley
Wonderful waterfall walks through ancient woodland, scenic cycling routes aplenty - North Tyne has so much to offer every holiday goer, whether you prefer quiet walks under starry skies, or jam-packed activity days.

The heart of Northumberland

Incredible views, winding rivers and burns, tranquil woodlands and majestic hills are just a few of The North Tyne Valley's irresistible qualities. You can also visit nearby villages and indulge in freshly baked goods at local bakeries and cafes, stroll through the historic market town of Bellingham, or discover routes such as the Pennine Cycle Way and the Reivers Coast to Coast cycle route.

Why not take a waterfall walk through ancient woodland, crossing no less than six bridges to reach the beautiful nine-metre high waterfall of Hareshaw Linn.

Perhaps you prefer the solitude of Stonehaugh and its new Sky Pavilion. Renowned for dark, starry skies and tranquillity, it’s the perfect spot for some stargazing.

Nature and history lovers will both find Greenhaugh intriguing. Here you can visit fortified farmhouses known as Bastles, which were built in the 16th and 17th centuries to protect people against raiders from both England and Scotland, or pop into The Holly Bush Inn for some refreshment.

And in the pretty village of Falstone, walkers and cyclists can refuel and relax. This pretty village nestles below the dam of Kielder Water on a loop of the River North Tyne. It is a great base from which to take in Northumberland National Park and the Scottish borders beyond.
