Druridge Bay Country Park
The park comprises three miles of beautiful beach and sand dunes, plus a large freshwater lake surrounded by woods and meadows. The variety of surroundings means you are sure to enjoy your visit whatever the time of year.
Ladyburn Lake is available for launching windsurfers and non-motorised boats (by permit), and sailing, windsurfing and canoeing courses are available. Enjoy watching birds on the lake and seashore, or discover wild flowers on the dunes. Picnic areas with tables are provided near the lake and visitor centre.
The Northumberland coastal cycle route runs through the park, and it offers an opportunity for cyclists to take a break in the café. The park is also a good base from which to explore the surrounding area by bike.
A range of leaflets and local information is available from the visitor centre, including self-guided trails around the country park and maps of the orienteering course.
Druridge Bay is dog-friendly, but please pick up after your dog and keep on a lead when near to horses or children playing in the area.
The bay is a great place to ride, but horse riders are to walk their horses when near other visitors, and to be aware of children at all times.
