When it comes to escaping the hustle and bustle of city life and immersing yourself in the beauty of nature, a country park in Northumberland, County Durham and North Yorkshire offers the perfect respite.

With eight stunning country parks to choose from at Maguires Country Parks, each offering something a little different, choosing the right country park for your getaway can be a delightful but challenging decision. 

One of the most significant factors to consider in your decision making is whether you prefer the serene charm of coastal landscapes or the rustic tranquillity of countryside settings.

To help you decide, let’s explore the unique charms of both our coastal and county country parks.

Choosing A Coastal Country Park: Where Land Meets Sea

Our coastal country parks are a treat for the senses, offering a blend of striking vistas, invigorating sea breezes, and opportunities to see fascinating wildlife.

Whether you’re a bird watching enthusiast, or simply seeking the calming rhythm of the waves, one of our coastal country parks might be your ideal destination.

Here’s what our coastal country parks have to offer…

Scenic Beauty

Each coastal country park boast breathtaking views of the merging landscapes where land meets sea. From towering cliffs to sandy shores, the beauty of these parks is unparalleled. 

Imagine sipping your morning coffee while watching the sun rise over the water. It really is an enchanting experience and the Maguires magic makes it!

Marine Life

If you’re fascinated by marine life, our coastal country parks are a treasure trove. Tide pools swarm with colourful sea creatures, while migrating birds often make pit stops along the shorelines, making them perfect for avid birdwatchers.


From kayaking and surfing to picnicking on the beach, our coastal park locations offer a range of activities that are bound to keep you entertained. The soothing sound of waves crashing against the shore can be the perfect backdrop for relaxation or adventure – whichever you prefer!

Choosing A County Country Park: Embracing Rustic Tranquillity

If you’re drawn to rolling hills, meandering streams, and the charms of rural life, our county country parks might be your cup of tea. 

Each of these captivating parks offer a peaceful escape from the noise of modern life and provide a chance to reconnect with nature.

Here’s what our coastal country parks have to offer…

Idyllic Landscapes

Our county country parks often feature sprawling meadows, dense woodlands, and picturesque gardens that evoke a sense of timeless beauty. 

Walking through these landscapes can be a breathtaking experience, allowing you to appreciate the small wonders of the natural world.

Wildlife Encounters

Whether it’s the rustling of leaves as a deer crosses your path or the chatter of squirrels in the trees, our parks are havens for wildlife enthusiasts. So, with that in mind, keep your camera at the ready because you never know what critter might make an appearance.

Tranquil Retreats

Are you looking for a break from the fast-paced world? Our county country parks offer a serene atmosphere for relaxation and contemplation.

Choosing Your Perfect Maguires Country Park

Ultimately, whether you prefer coastal allure or rustic charm, the choice depends on your personal preferences. We recommend you consider what activities and landscapes resonate with you the most. 

If you love the sound of waves and the call of seabirds, a coastal park might be your go-to. On the other hand, if you’re captivated by rolling hills and the peaceful rustling of leaves, a county park is likely to steal your heart.
