The start

This walk starts at Hauxley Nature Reserve and takes us South towards Druridge Bay Country Park.

Hauxley Nature Reserve

Hauxley Nature Reserve is a great place for bird watching, with hides situated all around the lake.  With great value parking and facilities here, it is a great place to start and end.  We leave the Nature Reserve and head down towards the beach and head South.

The coast

The beach on this walk is some of the best in Northumberland.  Tide permitting, we will walk on the beach whenever we can, as it is by far the best surface for Nordic Walking.

Druridge Bay Country Park

Once at the Country Park we will walk around Ladyburn Lake before heading back to Hauxley.  We will take a break here, as there are picnic tables and toilets available.

Back to Hauxley

After a walk round the lake, we will walk back the way we came to Hauxley Nature Reserve.  At the end of the walk we can take advantage of the Lookout Cafe.  You can watch the birds on the lake whilst enjoying tea and cake in the comfort of the cafe.

Hope to see you there.
