Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
Bolam Lake Country Park occupies a lovely landscape amidst rich Northumbrian countryside. It has lovely watery areas enriched with graceful swans and ducks, and from the jetties around the lake visitors can feed these lovely creatures, do a spot of fishing, or cast out a small canoe.
The park has a wealth of woodland, perfect for strolling beneath great branches to watch red squirrels scurrying away with winter food. A network of pathways makes Bolam popular with both walkers, cyclists and horse riders. From the visitor centre you can pick up information leaflets detailing the best walks. One walk takes you to the fascinating Shaftoe Crags, another to the impressive parish church. There is also helpful information enabling you to find your way around.
This is a delightful place in which to spend a tranquil day in beautiful surroundings. It is a place to be enjoyed by all the family, with a lakeside walk open to pushchairs and wheelchair users, enabling everyone to absorb and enjoy the wonderful flora and fauna of the landscape, and dramatic wilderness views.
Strategically placed display boards give interesting details, and amenities include a cafe and a shop for gifts and souvenirs.
