Nice close walks and activities for the kids

Walkers and dog lovers are very well catered near our cabins where Thrunton Woods, which is just a few miles up the A697,  has a variety of woodland treks:

Crag Top Walk (Follow green markers) 2 miles or about 45 mins 

Castle Hill Walk (Follow orange markers) 4.75 miles or about 2 hours 30 mins

Four Crags Walk (Follow red markers) 10 miles or about 4 hours.

Unfortunately the yellow brick road has fallen into disrepair!

A further drive up the A697 will bring you towards Chillingham Castle (18.6 miles North) which is the home of the famous Chillingham white cattle and a number of ghosts featured in TV's "Most Haunted"
