There are ample opportunities to explore for horse riders and cyclists. Walkers of all abilities are also well catered for, from short pub walks to multi-day hillwalking tours. Northumberland National Park also has three National Nature Reserves, popular with birdwatchers, and a Dark Sky park for stargazing.
