Start : From the Car park head down towards the dunes.

The first hole of the golf club is on your left.
Go through the gap ahead in the dunes to the beach and take the walk right, along to the River Coquet

Note:- the walk is easiest with the tide out when you can walk on the shore margin as opposed to the soft sand

There is a man-made breakwater round to the north side of the Coquet estuary.

You will note that venturing further is not recommended. In fact prohibited.

Turning away from the breakwater the track leads back to the start s along the left bank of the River Coquet with great views of Warkworth Castle.

For consideration, when using the countryside

This selection of walks in Northumberland follow recognised public rights of way or permissive paths and should be easy for most people to negotiate: but please remember that wet and winter weather can make paths muddy in places and the summer months produce fresh growth of vegetation - so wear suitable clothing and footwear.

If on any of these walks you find obstructions, or damage to stiles or footbridges which make paths impassible, please report these details as soon as possible to the countryside department of the Local or National Park authority responsible for the area.

Relationships between local farmers and those who use the footpaths are generally very good and there is no reason why they should not remain so given reasonable attitudes and understanding. Remember that the countryside is the farmers' livelihood, so please observe the Country Code : keep to the paths; close gates after you ; and take care not to cause damage, or leave litter; keep your dog under control; and leave all wild flowers for others to enjoy.

Dogs in the countryside :-

On Rights of Way - Dogs must be kept under close control, preferably on a short lead.

On Access Land - 1) Keep your dog on a short lead from 1 March to 31 July this to protect ground nesting birds from disturbance

2) Local restrictions may include a ban on dogs.

3) Note that restrictions do not apply to Guide/Hearing dogs, or if you are using a public right of way
