Right on the border between England and Scotland, Northumberland has an amazing variety of activities, destinations and countryside to enjoy. Taking a holiday house in Northumberland will give you the chance to really explore and get under the skin of this beautiful county.
There are more castles here than any other area of England, and the birthplace of English Christianity can be visited on the holy island of Lindisfarne. Staying in a holiday house in Northumberland on the edge of the windswept Northumberland National Park will give you access to the famous Cheviot Hills. Northumbrians are justifiably proud of this border country where, despite its current tranquillity, the Reiver clans once fought bloody battles for settlement rights. Now it is a landscape of serene rolling purple moorlands and undulating golden grassland, whilst some of the cleanest rivers in Britain burst with salmon and trout. If walking in the hills does not appeal then how about a stroll along the beach? A holiday house in Northumberland on the coast here gives you miles of deserted beaches and soft golden sands right on your doorstep. Much of this area has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty too, so the opportunities for beautiful landscapes, flora and fauna are endless.
