Directions and Transport
Woodhorn is just off the A189 Coastal Route east of Ashington, Northumberland.
It’s only 25 minutes from Newcastle in the south and Alnwick in the north. It is also just off the C1 National and Coast & Castles cycle routes.
If you are planning to use a sat nav, take care! Woodhorn’s postcode will take you to the wrong location, so please watch out for the brown and white signs as you get close and then Woodhorn’s large, bright entrance banners.
Public transport: Use the following link to make your way to Ashington Bus Station: http://jplanner.travelinenortheast.info/
From here you can either take a 15 minute walk or use Phoenix Taxis; contact them on 01670 817900.
If you decide to walk, here are the directions:
From Ashington Bus Station, follow the path towards and around Ashington Leisure Centre. When you reach the road, you will see a garage and McDonalds at the other side.
Go over the crossing opposite McDonalds.
Turn right and follow the cycle path.
Go straight over the mini roundabout, following the cycle path, and after about 600 metres go through the white gates on the left-hand side. You’ll cross a freight railway line so please take care. After this freight line, there is a slight hill to walk down, so please take care here too. Once you reach the path at the bottom of the hill, bear right and follow the path through the QEII Country Park to the Woodhorn car park.
The nearest main line railway station is Morpeth and the nearest airport is Newcastle International Airport.
