Self guided walks in Northumberland - Rothbury

The walk to Thrum Mill and back is 13/4 miles (3km), 45 mins, and follows the River Coquet on a level path.

The longer walk is 5 miles (8km), allow 3 hours for a leisurely pace. Some paths may be wet or muddy in places, and there is a moderately steep climb out of Rothbury which is rewarded with panoramic views. Three stiles are crossed on the walk.

Be a Welcome Visitor

Whilst visiting the Coquet Valley take care not to disturb wildlife habitats. Remember that the countryside is where farmers earn their living. Please respect their life and work and leave no litter.

Dog Walkers

Please keep your dogs on leads to prevent disturbance to stock and wildlife.


Rothbury has public toilets and a wide range of local services. The National Park Centre provides tourist information, sales and displays.
