Hidden Gem: Walk Among Fields of Bluebells

Blog | Published on: 9th May 2024

Every year from mid-April till late-May rolling fields of wild Bluebells spring up across the Tees Valley and we’ve got just the walk for you to enjoy them.

In the foothills of Roseberry Topping lies a hidden gem, Newton Woods. This short walk will take you through the woods which is bursting with wildlife, and flowers in bloom during Spring, before breaking out into a clearing where you can look back towards Roseberry Topping for a stunning view framed with fields of Bluebells.

You’ll have to be quick though, Bluebell season will be around for the month of May but better to see them sooner rather than later.


Roseberry Topping National Trust Car Park, Guisborough, Newton under Roseberry, Middlesbrough TS9 6QR. Please note there is a parking charge.


Toilets are available in the car park. Please keep dogs on a short lead around livestock.

The walk:

Exit the car park to the left and walk up Roseberry Lane towards Roseberry Topping.

When you get to the National Trust Roseberry Topping sign go through the gate and take an immediate right turn into the woods.

As you walk through the woods you’ll start to see fields of Bluebells on either side of the path.

Keep walking for just less than half a mile and you’ll come to a fork in the path. Instead of turning left which will take you up some steps towards Roseberry Topping, turn right and continue to walk in the opposite direction.

After another half a mile the path will start to incline as you are in the thick of Bluebell fields. Turn around and enjoy the views.
