Druridge Bay Country Park

3 miles (5 km)

This beautiful country park on the Northumberland coast consists of three miles of beach and sand dunes, a large freshwater lake, peaceful woodland and meadows. The coastline is simply stunning with a lovely cycling and walking path running alongside the beach. You could continue your outing by following the coast north towards Amble with views of Coquet Island, or head south to Newbiggin-By-The-Sea. There are several nature reserves in the area so there are plenty of opportunities for bird watching too.
The park is located near the popular village of Warkworth where you can enjoy a visit to the medieval castle and stroll along the River Coquet on our Warkworth River Walk. You could also pick up the coastal path on the Warkworth to Alnmouth Walk.
In Amble you can try the Amble to Warkworth Walk which takes you around the harbour and marina in the town.

Pubs/Cafes

There's a good on site cafe located in a lovely position at Ladyburn Lake.

Dog Walking

The bay is a great place for dog walking so you'll probably see other owners on your visit.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas

To extend your walking in the area head to the nearby town of Newbiggin By the Sea. There's some nice trails along the beach and bay with a noteworthy 13th century church and an interesting old 17th century pub to visit too.
