 Latest Walking Routes
Dunstanburgh Castle7 miles (11 km)This walk takes you along a beautiful stretch of the Northumberland coastline from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle and then on to Embleton Bay and the Newton Pool Nature Reserve.
Dunstanburgh Castle was built in the 14th century, being one of the largest and grandest fortifications in Northern England at the time. The dramatic ruins are now a popular tourist attraction, standing on a remote headland with fine views of Embleton Bay and Craster.
This walk starts at the small fishing village of Craster and follows the coastal path past the castle to Embleton Bay where you will find a lovely beach and sand dunes. You continue to the Newton Pool Nature Reserve where you can use the bird hides to look out for Herons and Barn Owls.
The castle is located about 5 miles north east of Alnwick. The St Oswald's Way walking route runs past the castle so you could extend your walk along this footpath.
Sizergh Castle2 miles (4 km)Enjoy a short walk through the delightful grounds of Sizergh Castle in the Lake District. There are 1,600-acres to explore including limestone pasture, orchards and semi-natural woodland. The beautiful gardens contain a pond, a lake, and a limestone rock garden. There are also fabulous views of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.
The site is run by the National Trust so there are excellent facilities with a cafe, shop and guided tours around the interesting medieval Sizergh Castle. There is also an ancient Yew Tree reckoned to be 1,600 years old - ask at reception for details.
The walk route below takes you around the castle grounds and through Low Wood to the River Kent before returning to the start point at the castle. Sizergh is located about 2 miles south of Kendal. One option is to follow the River Kent from Kendal to the castle which is not far from the river.
Trelissick House and Gardens2 miles (4 km)Explore the beautiful 300-acre estate of this country house in Cornwall. The estate is located on the estuary of the River Fal with a trail running through woodlands alongside the river. Trelissick also includes 30 acres of elevated garden with exotic plants, flowers and huge towering trees.
Kimmeridge Bay to Chapmans Pool9 miles (14 km)This circular walk takes you along the South West Coast Path to two noteable highlights on the Jurassic Coast.
Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door4 miles (6.5 km)Take in two of the Jurassic Coast's most spectacular natural features on this short walk in Dorset. The walk starts at the pretty village of West Lulworth where you will find rows of pretty cottages and the Castle Inn - one of the oldest pubs in Dorset dating from the 16th Century. The trail then takes you to the coast and the beautiful Lulworth Cove. This sheltered bay is enclosed almost in a circle and was formed 10,000 years ago by the combined forces of a river and the sea. Next to the cove you will pass the West Lulworth Heritage Centre which contains a museum about the coast and the village.
From the cove you follow the South West Coast Path west towards Durdle Door. This spectacular natural limestone arch also has an adjacent beach and caves. The walk then takes you back to West Lulworth along countryside walking trails.
There is ample parking at Lulworth Cove. If you are coming by public transport you could get the train to Wool and then a connecting bus to the cove.
