The best short walks in Northumberland

The best short walks in Northumberland

Sun 10th June 2012

I am a big fan of short walks in Northumberland. On those summer days when you just want a short walk in Northumberland with the family, or a short walk on your way back home you need to check out one of these –

1.    Hartburn Woodland Walk

Take a picnic with you and enjoy this, the best short walk in Northumberland.

It is not long but it has some great history on route to keep everybody happy and believe me you will not be disappointed.

More information about the walk route can be found here

2.    Hareshaw Linn

Bellingham sometimes gets overlooked but I am very fond of this lovely village. Hareshaw Linn, the few waterfall walks in Northumberland is very different than anything else we have.

A lovely woodland walk in Northumberland follows the river up to the waterfall itself. On the way you keep crossing the river and it rightly is high up as one of the best short walks in Northumberland.

More information about the walk route can be found here

3.    Cambo

This great short walk starts off at Cambo, which is a picturesque village owned by the National Trust, near to Wallington.

It is a lovely circular walk passing through farmland and as it is part of the Wallington Estate, which is also owned by The National trust (no need to pay admission prices for this walk) it is a very varied walk and very much warrants being on the best short walks in Northumberland list.

More information about the walk route can be found here.

If you have any thoughts or views of my selection of the best short walks Northumberland has to offer do please leave a comment below. Short walks can make for a great day out and often give you the time to not only walk but to explore the area you are visiting in Northumberland.

Interesting article. With the family we like the short walk up to Dunstanburgh castle and back.

Lovely area of the Northumberland coast.

The Hartburn walk looks interesting. Just downloaded it from your site after reading about it in this article.

Will take the family on it next weekend, fingers crossed the weather picks up a bit.

Thanks Shepherds walks for all your walks, we have really enjoyed the ones we have done so far.

Your Cambo reccomendation is an interesting one, as never really walked much in that area (except for visiting Wallington).

I think I will take the family on that walk this weekend and let you know how I get on. It is nice to have some different walks to do with the family rather than the same ones that we have done again and again.
