This walk will take you through some of Northumberland's most beautiful woodland valleys and rolling hills. We start in the Dipton Burn Valley. It was in this valley that Queen Margaret and her son hid in a cave after one of the Wars of the Roses battles, which was lost at Hexham Levels. We follow the burn, then make our way uphill to Letah Wood, an area managed by the Woodland Trust. The walk then breaks out onto open fields, rising gradually to give fine views of the Tyne Valley to the NE and the forest of Dipton and Slaley to the E and S.

A walk like this makes the WW subscription and app so worthwhile. Such variety! So delightful in springtime, and we plan to do it again in the autumn. We joined the walk at the start, having already walked 2 miles from our campsite, so we took the convenient short cut from the Travellers Rest (12) to Devil’s Water. Even so, by the time we were back at the campsite my GPS measured 13.5 miles, so we agree with a previous comment that the total distance for the walk must be about 11 mls. Thanks anyway to the contributors, very special!

We loved this walk. Level, very varied, and quietly beautiful; yet so close to Hexham. A special feature is the lovely vistas of open countryside you get at various stages despite there being no big hill climbs. And at about the halfway mark is the travellers rest, where we stopped for a soft drink, and that well earned rest, in their beer garden. My satmap device says we logged 11.1 miles. Allowing for the slight navigational errors we made along the way, the walk still felt a bit more than 9 miles. But who cares when the days are long and the walking is this good.

We walked this route on May the 8th, it is one of the most beautiful low level rambles we have ever done. The countryside is stunning and was made more special by the sheer number of new born lambs and young calves in most of the fields. The directions are very clear and combined with basic map reading skills no-one should have any problems with the route. We will definately be looking at more routes in this area.

We did this walk today, lovely weather. We found the walk very well signposted and the directions very good. It's a nice varied walk and very quiet, I would highly recommend it.
