A place where you can escape from dogs

This is a very large park about 1/2 mile out of the centre of Alnwick. It is open until sunset each day, and in summer the evening is a very good time to visit as it is very quiet. The bonus for me though was that no dogs are allowed. As there are very few places these days where you can escape from dogs this is utopia for me. Dog owners may well complain, but there are still the 99.99 percent of other places where they can still go. There are 3 mapped easy walks between 4 and 6.2 miles, which are signposted along the way with small blue, red and yellow signs, but take care as they are not always obvious when there are two possible directions to go. Take care during the day as there are numerous estate workers vehicles driving around and they don't slow down for walkers.

Hulne Park is a great place to walk around. There are way-marks for 3 different walks of varying lengths around the park & the scenery is great all around. We took a wrong turn & ended up backtracking because some of the roads & paths are private with no public access but actually that all added to the exploration of the park & the kids loved it. We saw deer on the hill opposite at one point & one lone deer an area where they were logging. On one of the detours there was the largest tree I have ever seen. It was amazing. Worth a walk around. We didn't see any other people walking. Very peaceful.
A beautiful walk

There are 3 well sign posted walks through the beautifully kept grounds. The weather was not particularly kind to us, but we did spot grey squirrels and muntjack and thoroughly enjoyed all the grounds we saw.
Beautiful walk but no dogs allowed

Take a leisurely walk around Hulne Park (there are different walks and different lengths for each walk) and you'll be amazed at such beautiful, breath taking scenery. See wildlife, flora and fauna especially on a warm day. Will take around 2 hours to walk right round and dogs aren't allowed. (There are no toilets either)

There is a notice on the main gate that states clearly "no dogs allowed" for anyone to mark this place down because of this is downright ignorant. The estate belongs to the Duke of Northumberland, there are three walks of varying lengths you are allowed on which are clearly marked. The park is huge, a beautiful place to enjoy the peace and tranquillity this place has in abundance. Beware there are no toilets available so make sure you go before you enter!
