Bolam Lake Country Park lies about nine miles west of Morpeth and is signposted off the A696 from Belsay.
The cafe sells a range of hot and cold refreshments, including soup, sandwiches, and local homemade cakes and scones. The visitor centre also sells a wide variety of books, maps, and handmade local gifts.
In addition, a new bird hide has recently been constructed overlooking the lake, following a suggestion from the Friend’s of Bolam Lake group.
There are a variety of woodland and lake view walks throughout the park, including a fully accessible path around the lakeshore.
The park provides the perfect environment for wildlife such as roe deer, red squirrels, and nuthatches. Bolam Lake is also home to swans and other waterfowl. All visitors are kindly asked to please respect breeding season (spring and early summer).
This planned landscape park has a long, rich history. Find out more information about its past and the resident wildlife in the visitor centre.
The park gates are open throughout the year during daylight hours.
Launching drones from County Council land is only allowed with the consent of the Council and where a formal license agreement has been signed.
