Thrunton Woods | Northumberland National Park
The second stop on our bank holiday jaunt to the gorgeous hills of Northumberland National Park was Thrunton Woods. After a morning of hiking up to the ragged cliffside of Simonside Hills we were enthusiastic to find even more incredible view points.
It wasn't too much further to drive, so we parked up in the car park and followed one of the trails which led us up a track and then onto a woodlands path. We stopped for our adventure bagels around halfway up, but trust me when I say it's worth keeping your picnic for when you get to the top!
It's always an incredible feeling to be surprised by a view and this one really did! The walk up is pretty woodland but there aren't many 'wow look at that!' kinda views but the top is something else.
There are a few jagged white crags that jut out high above the woodland areas below. It's enough to take your breath away and in my case, give me the heebie-jeebies.
It's a bloody good bit of exercise coupled with some fab views at the top. It's definitely somewhere I'm glad to have gone!
