The New Sandstone Way Trail
We are ideally located for cyclists eager to experience the new Sandstone Way trail. It is a new 120 miles / 192km (approx) mountain biking route between Berwick upon Tweed and Hexham along the Sandstone Ridge in North Northumberland linking numerous sandstone features, crags and outcrops.
The route traverses through an amazing ever-changing landscape which is rich in history, geological features and iconic scenery.
The Reivers Route (National Cycle Route 10)
The Reivers Route opened in 1998 and is 173 miles long. It is also known as the ‘Return C2C’ as it takes you from the end of the west-to-east route all the way back to the start of the C2C.
It is now part of the National Cycle Network and the route between Tyneside and Kielder.
