“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

No traffic unless people pay £10 to park. So just local cars and there are not many. It is such a peaceful valley.

“A highlight of St. Cuthbert's Way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

On about day 4 of the SCW you set off from Kirk Yetholm in Scotland and arrive at the end of the day in Wooler in England. Along the way you pass through this beautiful valley and it provides several excellent picnic spots for lunch including the stones down by the waterfalls and an old sheep pen above the river and on the way to Torleehouse.

“Ssshhhh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This beautiful valley has the best walking in Northumberland although a permit is needed to take a car into the valley beyond the car park. If you are a serious walker then this area is perfect and, because of the need for a permit, only serious and sensitive visitors tend to apply. All the obvious warnings apply about telling people where you are going, checking the weather and staying warm and safe.
