Country parks in Northumberland


Cafes at the county's Country Parks are to temporarily close at the end of Wednesday 6 January.

While the cafes are legally allowed to stay open for takeaway under current lockdown restrictions, the council has decided to close them. 

While people are permitted to undertake exercise in their local area – meaning avoiding travelling outside their village, town or the part of a city where they live, they should be predominantly staying in their homes where possible or not prolonging their exercise in country parks with takeaway food or drink.

All our country parks will remain open.  You can find out more about our country parks here.
