Northern England region
Northumbria is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian’s Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife. Covering 400 square miles, the Northumberland National Park is the least populated of England’s National Parks, much to the benefit of those visitors seeking peace and solitude.
Thousands of paths and tracks weave their way through beautiful countryside, providing exhilarating fresh air and wide-open spaces for walkers and cyclists alike. Stay a while, roam the countryside but don’t forget to explore further, because the area known as Northumbria offers much more than just the National Park. Northumbria encompasses County Durham, the Tees Valley and Tyne and Wear, as well as covering the North Pennines ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, the City of Durham and the Heritage Coastline, boasting a selection of protected golden beaches and tiny fishing villages. Northumberland’s Heritage Coast has mile upon mile of sparkling beaches, rocky coves and picturesque fishing villages.
Sweeping from Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north, to Druridge Bay in the south, popular destinations along the coastline include the horseshoe-shaped sandy beach and dunes at Beadnell Bay, the bustling village of Seahouses, with boat trips from the picturesque harbour, and the kipper smokery and coastal path at Craster.
Adding to the area’s splendour is a chain of magnificent castles: Alnwick, home to the powerful Percy family and the setting for some of the Harry Potter films; spectacular, medieval Bamburgh, standing high on its rocky outcrop; the brooding ruins of Dunstanburgh and pretty Warkworth.
Waren Mill is ideally located at the head of Budle Bay on the Northumberland coast. Budle Bay is a haven for wildlife, particularily birds.This holiday cottage is within easy reach of Northumbria's numerous beautiful attractions.
Two miles to the south of Waren Mill lies the picturesque village of Bamburgh which boasts wide sandy beaches, a spectacular castle, tennis courts and a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.
The Farne Islands, home to a seal colony and bird sanctuary, are a short boat trip away (from Seahouses).
North of Waren Mill visitors will find Lindisfarne Island, known locally as Holy Island, believed to be the birthplace of Christianity in the UK.
For golf enthusiasts Bamburgh has a dramatic 18 hole links course. Numerous other well maintained courses are within easy access, from Alnmouth in the south to Goswick in the north.
Surrounded by the Chevoit foothills, the Northumberland Hertiage coast and the Scottish Borders, Waren Mill is a fantastic base for exploring everthing the region has to offer.
