Northumberland Coastal Path

A 60-mile route split into 6 sections, the Northumberland Coastal Path is easily accessible from the park. The Seahouses to Belford route is the nearest to Wooler and takes you and your pooch up the coast and past the iconic Bamburgh Castle.

Holy Island

A major attraction for visitors to the area, Holy Island offers a 4.3-mile circular footpath for you and your pet to best explore the island on foot. Accessed from the main car park, the anticlockwise path takes you along the coast, past Lindisfarne Castle, before heading back to Holy Island village. Don’t forget that the island can only be accessed when the tide is low, so make sure to plan ahead! You can check crossing times here.
