Overlooking the historic pit yard and opposite the exciting children’s play area inspired by Woodhorn’s industrial heritage, the Winding House café offers visitors a range of light refreshments, sandwiches and toasties featuring Northumbrian food and suppliers

Enjoy a cup of delicious Ringtons Tea or coffee, or perhaps a refreshing rose lemonade from Fentimans with your home-made scones, tray bakes and sandwiches. Try a toasted sandwich or some of our own delicious home-made soup and a roll from Trotters Family Bakers.

Directions and Transport
Woodhorn is just off the A189 Coastal Route east of Ashington, Northumberland.

It’s only 25 minutes from Newcastle in the south and Alnwick in the north. It is also just off the C1 National and Coast & Castles cycle routes.

If you are planning to use a sat nav, take care! Woodhorn’s postcode will take you to the wrong location, so please watch out for the brown and white signs as you get close and then Woodhorn’s large, bright entrance banners.
