Below are some of the local businesses that we know well, who will help you make the most of this great county; whether it be exploring, hiking, exercising or creating.”

Footsteps Guided Walks

The Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Beauty, is a walker’s dream. Long sandy beaches, rocky foreshores and backed by high sand dunes with a scattering of small villages hugging the coast, walking here is a delight.

Strolls With Poles

If you enjoy a stroll, especially using Nordic Walking poles, then Strolls With Poles is for you.  Take a look around the website to learn more about us.

We specialise in enjoying fun, relaxing and friendly walks in a variety of beautiful locations in the North East of England.  We sometimes even venture further afield, taking part in challenge walks and away days.

As a reward we always end (sometimes during) our walks enjoying tea and cakes, in local tea rooms and cafes.

Cloud Dancer

Cloud Dancer Photography specialises in the creation and aerial photography of large scale sand art, mainly on the beaches of Northumberland. I will be offering small group or one to one activity sessions when it is safe to do so. The images can be printed or shared on social media, to show off your work. It is a unique way of experiencing the Northumberland coast, as a family or individual.
