Northern England region
The northerly county of Northumberland is a hidden gem of totally unspoilt countryside and wonderful long stretches of pristine sandy beaches.
If you want to stretch your legs and breathe in clean country air this is the place for you, with miles of wide open spaces and magnificent views. The county has three distinct sub regions; a coastline stretching some forty miles with quiet sandy beaches and pretty coastal harbour villages. Inland visitors will find dramatic rolling moorland and forests, much of which is National Park and to the south of the region is the famous Hadrian's Wall which runs coast to coast and is now a World Heritage Site.
Apart from Northumberland's natural assets the county is steeped in history and has had a turbulent past which is characterised by more than its fair share of castles and ancient hill forts, some of which were built to repel Viking invaders. It was also the scene of the border wars and conflicts between the English and Scots in the 14th-16th century.
The Potting Shed is located in Harbottle within the limits of the Northumbria National Park. Rothbury is close by and this quaint village offers fantastic fishing opportunities as well as pubs, shops and a golf course. Like other holiday cottages in Northumbria, The Potting Shed is in a popular location for rambling and walking. The town of Alnwick is also close to the cottage and as the location site for Hogwarts, its fantastic castle is a much visited sight. The town also has local amenities for visitors. The Potting Shed is also ideally located for those wishing to visit the Heritage Coastline. This designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is within twenty-five miles. The Scottish Borders area is also within an easy drive of the area. All in all a stay in The Potting Shed is ideal for those who love amazing scenery and the great outdoors.
