Lovely country park, very peaceful. Very clean and tidy with numerous car parking areas. Beautiful lake with water sports (although we did not see any), visitor centre, and then onto to beach, which is endless, virtually empty, an amazing experience.

Fabulous. Lovely walks, family friendly, dog friendly, great cafe and visitors centre. Close Access to the beach. Events on at different times throughout the year. I regularly walk my dog off lead and am never disappointed.

Visited today and walked on the beach with the dog who loved the freedom. Bracing wind but still beautiful beach and views. The lake is lovely and facilities adequate. Did not eat at the cafe but food looked nice. Fresh scones and pasties.

Druridge Bat must have the finest sand in Europe. Beautiful long beach. Some WW2 construction remains along the beach. Simply beautiful

Due to lack of signage on the roads we ended up at the beach itself and did not go into the Country Park itself. Even there there were no signs into the Park. (It really would be useful to visitors to provide some guidance.) However...More
