Explore these pretty little woods in the village of Hartburn on this short walk in Northumberland. A river runs through the area with a deep pool reputed to have been used to hide silver and valuables during Viking Raids. Look out for wildlife including red squirrels, badgers and otters and various interesting plants and flowers. There's also a splendid Grade ll listed grotto near the river. It was created in the 18th century as a changing area for ladies wishing to bathe in the Hart Burn.
Hartburn Glebe is situated about 6 miles (10 km) to the west of Morpeth.
To continue your walking in the area you could visit Wallington Hall. There's some lovely walks here in the grounds of a country house with lakes, woodland, parkland and a beautiful walled garden.
