Plessey Woods in Northumberland

Explore Plessey Woods
Pretty primroses in spring, humming honeysuckles in summer, bursts of colour in autumn and shimmering frost in winter make Plessey Woods Country Park a delightful day out year-round. Explore winding nature trails, riverside routes and wild meadows.

Wild flowers and river banks

Plessey Woods Country Park & Visitor Centre is set in 100 acres of enchanting woodland, wild-flower-clad meadows and romantic riverside as the River Blyth runs through the park. Its intricate network of paths and trails make this a great spot for walkers, cyclists, horse-riders and picnickers.

Wander along the river bank to spot otters peeping out of the water and kingfishers skimming the surface. Self-guided trails and children’s clue trails offer a fantastic family day out, and for the artists among you there is a sculpture trail created in partnership with a local artist. 

A young children’s play area, a visitor centre perfect for picking up gifts, and a café to enjoy a warming drink cater to every type of visitor. Plus, the free car park offers a care-free day out. Check opening hours on the Northumberland County Council website.
