Regularly visit 'The Dene' - both for daily dog walks, family breakfasts in the coffee shop and general exploring! Deceptively vast, with stunning views and settings around every corner including some a beautiful waterfall. Sunny days are magical and have a lovely traditional English community...More

Beautiful woodland and riverside walks. Waterfalls, stone bridges, rhododendrons (in season). Utterly charming and unexpected, just a stone's throw from busy A roads.

Jesmond Dene has always been a fantastic place to visit. Some lovely paths that lead off to fascinating finds such as the old banqueting hall and the chapel. The waterfall by the bridge is a beautiful place to sit and watch the world go by....More

If we parked in a disabled parking bay, how far would it be for a family member to walk to the waterfall? She walks very slowly with a stick. Would it be feasible?

Response from Seamus T | Property representative |
If you parked at the disabled bay near the visitor centre (pets Corner) it would be a walk of 1.2 kilometres. The route is on good paths with no steep slopes.
Can you take dog?

Most definitely yes, I take my dog as do lots of others, They are mostly kept on leads but I'm not certain if this is a local bylaw but as it's used by many people and also cyclists,then I think a lead is a must. Enjoy your... More
