A circular walk around Ladyburn Lake within Druridge Bay Country Park in Northumberland. The park comprises three miles of beautiful beach and sand dunes, plus a large freshwater lake surrounded by woods and meadows. This route follows a simple circuit around the lake, but you could extend the route by adding a stretch along the beach should you wish. The walk follows a fairly wide surfaced path for the entire length. There are no steps or stiles, just a couple of footbridges and single gates to negotiate. The walk would be suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs as there are just a few gentle slopes. Dogs are welcome in the park (and beach) and dog bins are provided. Dogs need to be on a lead for just a short stretch through the nature protection area. The surfaced path crosses one field which is occasionally used to graze cattle. The visitor centre at the start point has toilets and an information area which are open daily from 9.30am to 4.30pm. The cafe, shop and display rooms are open from 11.00am to 4.00pm between April and September at weekends, on Bank Holidays and during the school summer holidays. Approximate time 45 to 60 minutes.

Enjoyed this stroll with my very 'nosey' beagle. Free car park and a nice easy walk around the lake. Lots of spots to stop and enjoy the scenery. We will be back!
