Northumberland: Haltwhistle Riverside Park

We offer forest school for families with children under 7 year olds during term time and funded holiday club sessions during selected school holidays.

About this Location

Our site was originally the old train station yard (with some railway paraphernalia hidden in the undergrowth), which has since become a small but wonderful haven for local wildlife, consisting mostly of Silver Birch, Buddleia and Sycamore. At the bottom of our site, the South Tyne river flows by and along the top we have a fire circle with log seating. This site is open to the public and used daily by local residents.

Family friendly

Accessible on foot, with pushchair and wheelchair

Central to Haltwhistle and accessible via public transport

Address and Travel Information


Haltwhistle Riverside Park
Off Tyne View Road
NE49 9HY

Riverside Park is a small plot of land by Haltwhistle Train Station, owned by South Tynedale Railway Preservation Society, lying between the station and the South Tyne, in Haltwhistle, Northumberland. 

Access to the woods on foot is via the entrance on Tyne View Road, next to the allotments. Alternatively from West Road, head under the railway bridge and walk in the direction of the westbound platform (to Carlisle); the track to the left of the platform leads to the woods. Most of this route to our site is accessible by pushchair but there is some rough, uneven terrain.


On street parking is an option if driving.
