- Outdoors - 

There are so many local walks, we couldn't possibly recommend a favourite, but this site lets you search by location and difficulty, so you should find something suitable.

If you are bringing your four-legged friend with you, it's worth knowing that our local pub The Red Lion is  dog friendly, ideal for a rest and a beer on the way home from your walk.

It's a couple of miles to Low Barns Nature Reserve and we are just a few miles from the North Pennines AONB.

There are lots of places where you can enjoy the night sky in Durham, have a look at the Dark Skies map to find out more.
