About the location
Morpeth 8.4 miles; Amble 6 miles;
Widdrington is a village located around eight miles north east of Morpeth, an ideal place for exploring the county of Northumberland in an area wonderful for walkers, cyclists and bird-watchers. The local parish church is Grade I listed and dates to the Norman era, commanded by elevated ruins of the 18th century Widdrington Castle. The country park at Druridge Bay is less than two miles away and the bustling little seaport of Amble, situated at the mouth of the River Coquet, can also be reached easily. Historically a centre for boatbuilding, Amble offers a marina, a harbour, sandy beaches and coastal walks to the bird sanctuary at Hauxley. Large fishing boats moor along the harbour wall and land a variety of fish, prawns, crabs and lobsters - the daily catch can be bought at a fish shop in the harbour. A mile south of Amble is Coquet Island, an RSPB reserve with a large population of terns, puffins and eider ducks, which boat trips can be arranged around. The pretty coastal villages of Alnmouth and Craster, as well as numerous superb beaches, are only a short drive away, whilst the National Trust’s Wallington Hall and Cragside are also within easy reach. Be sure to visit picturesque Warkworth and its castle, plus the charming town of Alnwick with its castle and award-winning gardens too.
