Northumberland

Northumberland''s distinctive and magnificent landscape offers something for everyone. From the breathtaking views of the Cheviot Hills to the often deserted golden sandy coastline; you''ll find the magic right on your doorstep.

Spanning 1,935 square miles, Northumberland is a land of big skies and even bigger scenery. A cottage holiday here offers the perfect opportunity to explore medieval abbeys and rolling countryside, Roman remains and fantastic beaches. There''s so much to see and do in this inspiring area, and a cottage holiday is the best way to do it.

Northumberland''s most well-known attraction, Hadrian''s Wall is rich in history and steeped in Roman heritage. A feast for the eyes, marvel as the 80 miles of fortified stone and archaeological wonders which offer a great insight into how the Romans lived.

Explore the ancient castles that sit along the atmospheric coastline and delve into the past at one of the many museums in the region. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne has great nature reserves and you may even spot the resident grey seals on the neighbouring Farne Islands. Northumberland is one of England''s unspoilt regions; you''ll find rare wildlife, diverse habitats and bustling seabird colonies, all virtually untouched by human hands.

There''s nothing like exploring the great outdoors, and you''ll find lots of stunning Northumberland cottages dotted throughout friendly towns and villages, all perfectly located for walking, hiking and cycling. With cosy pubs and welcoming inns along the way, Northumberland''s extensive foot and cycle paths criss-cross over green pastures and open countryside. Sailing enthusiasts can cast off from lively coastal towns and fishing villages to take in the spectacular surroundings of the area''s unspoilt and wildlife-rich coast. And if you like your watersports wet and wild, you won''t be disappointed with Northumberland. Kayaking, waterskiing, powerboating and windsurfing can all be found here.

There''s also some great fishing in the area, with popular spots such as the rivers Tweed and Tyne, both claiming to be the best Atlantic salmon rivers in Britain. But if you''d prefer a more relaxing pace of life, Northumberland is home to a wide range of speciality shops, markets and galleries. And from fish and chips to a la carte cuisine, there''s a plethora of cafes, pubs and restaurants all serving up delicious home cooked food with the local produce grown and caught in the area.
