Lots of beautiful open spaces ideal for walking. Fresh air heaven. Easy to park ( dark carpark though- handy for meeting and not being spotted)

This is a lovely wood which is well kept. Ideal for walkers and cyclists. Paths lead off to seating areas and there are lots of beautiful wood carvings. You could spend just an hour here or a whole day.

We are regular visitors to Chopwell, and I love this place. The walks are perfect and safe for our two dogs, and it feels like you are a million miles from Newcastle, however its only a short drive. For a longer walk, I recommend the...More
