Felton in Northumberland

Explore Felton
Felton is a small village situated on the River Coquet and is famous for hosting Oliver Cromwell back in the day whilst he was on route to the Battle of Dunbar. In its present form it is close to the A1 and located between the market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth.

A village to whet your appetite

You will come across Felton on the St Oswald's Way walking route between the Warkworth and Rothbury stage. Felton is a great place to take a break from the gruelling 18 mile walk where you can rest and replenish yourself at the Northumberland Arms. However, if you're just looking for a quick pit stop then The Running Fox is a great place to refuel with their artisan bakery and famous afternoon teas.

You will find old and relatively new in the main hub of Felton with two bridges in close proximity of each other that transport you across the River Coquet. The old bridge is pedestrianised and a building of architectural and historic interest and is used today for local community events. The new replacement bridge was constructed in 1926 and although not as attractive as the old bridge is still a grade II listed building.

Fishing and walking are popular along the River Coquet and can be accessed easily via the centre of the village located close to the pub and bakery. Walk in the opposite direction and you will find the church of St Michael and All Angels which is worth a visit on the St Oswald's Way route.
