Great outdoors

Top autumn views

We love this time of year for donning our outdoor gear, packing a flask of hot soup and walking to our favourite view-points.

Autumn shows off our landscapes in a spectacular array of colours like no other season.

Great British Walk

The Great British Walk celebrates the changing colours of our landscapes this year.

Join us as we explore autumn leaves, discover colourful fungi, watch the rutting stags and herds of red deer and enjoy wide stretching views.

Get cycling

A great place for bike rides with family and friends all year round

Fancy exploring some of the best autumn colours on two wheels?

You can hire bikes at Clumber Park where you can even try out tandem cycling, or simply head out on your own two wheels to explore more of the places we care for.

Dog Walkies

All dogs are welcome at Cragside

We know how dear your four legged friends are to you and we love to see them enjoying fresh air.

Our houses, and some gardens, are only for humans, but there are acres of outdoors spaces where you can enjoy walkies with your dog.
