Otterburn Mill is located just 25 miles north of Newcastle on the A696 and is also easily accessible from the A68 and A69. We have free parking on the site so you can park up and spend the whole day enjoying Otterburn Mill and the surrounding area.
The fields and footpaths edging the former textile mill are perfect for a picnic and stroll. If you fancy a moderate grade walk, the two mile Otterburn Village Trail is one of the Northumberland National Park Rangers’ favourite walks, and it starts and finishes from the car park at Otterburn Mill.
This self-guided trail should take approximately 2 hours and is a great way to explore the countryside, encompassing grasslands and public footpaths. Along the route you might be fortunate enough to see otters, several species of birds and a diverse range of flowers.
