walk notes

This section of St Oswald’s Way takes you over the highest point on the whole trail, as you skirt over the shoulder of Simonside.

After meeting at Harwood there will be a short transfer (included in the price) to Lordenshaws for the start of the days walk.

You will then be guided along St Oswald’s Way with some great initial views of Coquetdale and Rothbury in the valley bottom. The route then crosses over to the remote Spylaw and then onto Harwood Forest.

As you are guided through the forest on St Oswald’s Way you pass Falowlees farm a very remote farm house before dropping down to Harwood Village itself.

A very varied section of St Oswald’s Way.
