We spent a fantastic day in this valley with a pass from our BandB. Everywhere you looked it was perfect.To add to our bliss the sun shone the whole day. Just to sit and eat our picnic watching little birds and breathing in the pure air. The memorial to the fallen airmen was also an inspiration. So clean & tidy and well thought out, every detail of it. I loved the seat & shepherd's crook honouring men who fell in this area giving up their lives that we might live and enjoy the surroundings.

Lovely valley with views of The Cheviot. Very quiet the day we went, apart from the fly past by 3 jets. The RAF memorial is worth a visit. Take provisions - there is nowhere to get a drink!

We had been told of College Valley by friends, but never made it. Finally, we did make it. The weather was unexpectedly fine, with gorgeous blue skies and interesting clouds! We stopped in Wooler to buy a £10 pass for the valley (Savills), and parked at Hethpool for a 4 mile walk up Great Hetha, followed by a drive up the valley. In fact, you do not need a pass to get to this car park, but you do to travel beyond the car park into the valley ( although not obviously policed). The climb up Great Hetha is steep, but the views from the top are well worth it!

Hill forts, lakes, rivers, birdlife, great walks ...complete no brainer. Beautiful. Free parking too. My only tip would be (for very average walkers) to walk up and down the valkey on the road - dont bother crossing the river and walking, in part, through part scrub, above the river traverse ( easy ... the odd steep bit ...but no worse than 3 flights of stairs ...if a little muddy in places after rain) Nice houses/ cottages nearby ... lovely gardens. Take food, drink etc and have a splendid day. Easy 5 stars

Wonderful scenery in the heart of Northumberland to drive through the full valley to Battle Ridge you need a £10 permit. But for walkers or cyclist you can go free. Parking at Hethpool. Wild life a plenty. Can be muddy in places so best to wear suitable foot wear. Wild goats(if your lucky) on the St. Cuthbert trail. A few miles outside Wooler. Worth a visit and hope for a fine day.
