How to Add a Walk

You can even map out your favourite route, and of course don’t forget to post a photograph of your pooch enjoying itself.

Plessey Woods Country Park

Plessey Woods Country Park is set in 100acres of woodland, meadows and riverside. Plenty of parking and good public transport links.Plessey Woods Country Park is on bus routes from nearby towns including Blyth, Cramlington, Bedlington, Morpeth, Ashington and Newcastle. Bus stops are at Hartford Bridge, Hartford Hall,and Hartford Bridge Village.

There is a vistor centre, with toilets and a cafe (which does a lovely cup of tea!) and although there is a small charge for parking, it is definitely worth it.

Stunning woodland with a wonderful river which is perfect for swimming for people and dogs alike.

I can easily walk in these woods for hours, no matter the weather. There are handy poo-bag dispensers and water bowls at the main entrance, and many picnic and barbecue areas throughout the park. Merlin and Pixie love the woods, even if their short corgi legs get tired on some of the steeper stepped areas, and they are very relectant to go through the streams rather than over the bridges! But there is a wide path that leads down to and along the riverside, which should make that area accessible for visitors with diabilities.

The history of the place is fascinating too. The whole area has such a fantastic atmosphere. And the wildlife! You might see a kingfisher or an otter!

The stream as you leave/enter the woods is great for cleaning muddy paws on the way back.

Remember, there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing choices!
