30 Jun Walk to Wooler from Homildon Cottage – direct route

The most direct walk to Wooler is mostly along a quiet road – aside from a short but pleasant stretch of footpath cutting a corner across a field.
  • Start: Homildon Cottage
  • Finish: Wooler
  • Time: 15-20 minutes
  • Distance: 1.25 miles

 

Walking at a reasonable pace, this can be done in quarter of an hour – or take your time at a leisurely stroll.

Start by turning left out of Homildon Cottage’s drive, and then right at crossroads in High Humbleton.

Leaving the hamlet behind you, you will come to a bench on the right, with a footpath sign (A). Take this path to cut the corner, walking through two fields. At the bottom of the hill, do not follow the track round into the camp site but exit onto the road, turning right. If you do not wish to cross these fields, you can instead continue on the road from the bench at point (A), turning right when you reach the crossroads.
