Wynyard Woodland Park

2 miles (3 km)

Formerly known as the Castle Eden Walkway Country Park this park in Billingham has numerous woodland footpaths and a visitor centre. National Cycle Network Route 1 also passes through the park so you can bring your bike too. Just north of the park is the Thorpe Wood Local Nature Reserve which offers a chance to extend your outing. There's also a delightful wildflower meadow, a fine cafe and a fascinating planetarium and observatory.
The Castle Eden Walkway rail trail runs through the park so you can continue along this to Thorpe Wood and Brierley Wood.
Also nearby is Cowpen Bewley Woodland Park where there's pretty lakes and lots of birdlife to see. Near Stockton you can visit Coatham Woods with two waymarked woodland trails to try.

The on site cafe in the park is a good option but you could also head to the Castle Eden Inn. It's located just to the east of the Castle Eden Walkway near the start. They do very good food and also have two beer gardens where you can sit outside on warmer days. It's a welcoming place with a cosy atmosphere and is also dog friendly. You can find it on Stockton Rd with a postcode of TS27 4SD for your sat navs.
