National Trust Wallington and Cragside Long Route
- Begins in:
- Wallington Demesne, United Kingdom
- Created By:
- National Trust Y&NE
- This longer ride starts from the car park at Wallngton (house, gardens, woodland, toilets, refreshments) and heads out past the estate village of Cambo. Climb steadily past Harwood Forest until you reach the old gibbet, marking the western boundary of the Wallington estate. From here its a rapid decent into Elsdon. Follow the scenic road through the Northumberland National Park and upper Coquetdale until you get to Rothbury where its only a short detour to National Trust Cragside (toilets, refreshments). A challenging climb out of Rothbury is rewarded by great views of Simonside. Smaller roads are taken to Netherwitton, Longhorseley and Bolam lake before arriving back at Wallington for a cup of tea and a slice of cake!
