Car parking available
Good place to stretch the legs

The park was recommended to us and a fine place it was too. A choice of walks, depending on weather, time and fitness. We chose the Blue route (about 6 miles) which was lovely over easy terrain, lots of pheasants about and I presume there will be a lot more birdlife around as it warms up. Good to walk along the river as well as the old monastery/hunting lodge. Information boards give a good level of history to the area.
Waste of time
It's not clear what pathways allow public access. The pathways have cars going up and down so it's not ideal if you have children. This place is more of a nature trail with routes between 4.5-6miles, all though the park is poorly sign posted and no directions other than a map at the entrance, so it's really not clear which ways you can and cannot go many paths say no public access or private, all in all it is rather confusing. There is a few photo opportunities but again with kids there's no activities other than what feels like aimless walking. Also the grounds keeper is extremely rude to visitors.
My favourite parkland

This is tremendous Parkland open from 11am to dusk most days but a sign at the entrance lets you know about any changes to the access. It is free and there are long trails which are open to the public. It is stunningly beautiful. No dogs allowed but that is because there are working farms in the Park.
Autumn colours at their best

A recent walk on a sunny morning in Hulne Park was absolutely beautiful with beech trees at their autumnal best as my attached photos show. We love this park and one can walk here in relative tranquility. There are several signposted walks of varying length and one can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding landscape of north Northumberland. There is a working farm in the park which one cannot walk through and several residences but access routes are clearly marked. Areas can be boggy so we recommend walking shoes when it has recently rained.
Public access tolerated but not welcome

Walks here are restricted to a few roads, and are pretty dull. 'Keep out' signs are everywhere. There are no benches. I suggest you go somewhere else!
