Aside from being the most northerly known steam railway in England, Heatherslaw Light Railway is also terrifically adaptive to the weather: with fully enclosed, partly glazed, and fully open carriage options provided depending on their judged suitability for the day! In addition they carry 2 permanent carriages suitable for disabled access, so whatever your set up, whatever your weather prognosis, you're good to go!
Their 15 inch gauge railway runs a charming route from Heatherslaw Station across to Etal Castle, totting up a return journey of just under 6.5km with much of it alongside the River Till so you have a great passing view of the copious riverside wildlife like swans, herons, ducks and otters!
It's a delightful jaunt at all times but extra value is available in their outer service months of April and October when a return ticket will give you all day travel so you can have all sorts of little adventures up and down the line!
Etal Castle is near the Etal Station stop, with Etal Village a short distance thereafter and there you can find the lovely family friendly Lavender Tearooms, who will happily refuel your little (or big!) bellies for the walk back to the station.
