The Simonside Hills lie within Northumberland National Park on the northern-most edge of Harwood forest and have beckoned walkers for years because of their wild and rugged beauty. The range dominates the skyline forming a dramatic southern backdrop to the middle reaches of the River Coquet. The climb up the hills to the top (at 430m) is rewarded with the whole panorama of the Cheviots to the north and from the top of Simonside itself the whole Northumbrian coastline is revealed.

excellent views of our fantastic countryside and the sunsets are spectacular. If you're into overnight camping you'll get to see some amazing night skies here too. Well worth trying it out for yourselves.
