walk notes

This lovely guided walk starts off and finishes at the 100-acre beauty spot of Bolam Lake. It is one of the great medium length walks that we have in Northumberland.

After skirting the lake for a short while you pass through some traditional pastoral fields for about half the distance.

You climb slightly to reach East Shaftoe Grange, with its walled garden. You climb very gradually until you reach the moorland section of the walk, with some breathtaking views of the surrounding area, which has involved very little effort.

You descend back down to the fields and amble your way down to a track that returns you to Bolam Lake.

We have so many great walks in Northumberland and this is one that certainly fits into that category.
