Tucked away within Gibside estate you can discover nature and calm surroundings. To help you find these peaceful beauty spots, the Route to Relaxation trail will take you on the right path.

Enjoy a stroll through Ice House Dene and along the banks of the River Derwent.

Take in the changing sounds of the water from the babbling stream to the quiet of the river as you go.

Meet Gibside’s oldest tree, and look out for signs of spring and wildlife such as woodpeckers, red kites, ducks and deer, as you immerse yourself in the sensory delights of nature.

This is perfect for some ‘me’ time to awaken your senses and refresh your mind.
