Green walk – Cragside, Northumberland

A burn and coniferous forest and its reflection in a lake

Green restores the balance in our mind, body and emotions, which helps us feel more restful.

'Everything here is green in the autumn,’ says our head ranger, Duncan Norman. ‘Across the estate we've seven million trees. When the leaves are falling off the trees elsewhere it's nice to have somewhere that retains the colour across the whole landscape.
'Cragside has got the sense of Jurassic Park in autumn. The Pinetum is a really special place at this time of year. You can have a slow meander though it in 20 minutes and it's really atmospheric.’


Route: 2 miles (moderate)
