Errington Wood is on the Northern face of the hillside above the village of New Marske, and is easily accessible from Redcar, Guisborough and Saltburn. It is named after the Errington family, the original landowners, who, in 1773 planted the area with trees as a cash crop.

Within the wood there are over 9 miles of well-maintained paths, the lower one which is flat with a solid surface, and an upper walkway that is also a well used route for local horse riders and deer. There's an endless supply of smells and undergrowth for dogs, with a large, clean picnic area at the entrance point that overlooks an open field and outdoor play area for children.

All in all a great day out for the family, just make sure you carried out dog training for recall or you might just not get them to come home!
