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.
Bamburgh offers a variety of activities to suit everyone ranging from outdoor sports to historical attractions. There are plenty of cycling and walking routes to take within Bamburgh as well as hosting its own 18-hole golf course. Other activities include a tennis court, cricket and croquet for something a little bit different! For those who prefer to try out some sports on the water, Bamburgh beach is the place to have a go at surfing. The Northside Surf School are able to give lessons to help you learn the ropes. For those who prefer a more peaceful holiday, what could be better than delving into some history? Bamburgh Castle is the perfect place to visit where you will receive a huge amount of knowledge and insight into the history of Bamburgh and it is a great trip out for both adults and children. The Grace Darling Museum is a magnificent place to explore as it explains the history behind the song ‘Amazing Grace' and is a definite must see when visiting Bamburgh. Holy Island is a fantastic place to visit with plenty of historical areas to visit including Lindisfarne Castle which offers stunning views of both the Castle and surrounding areas. The Lindisfarne Centre is a great area to explore with many exhibitions and gospels. Of course walking is an extremely popular past time in the beautiful area of Holy Island and there are guided walks available. Horse riding is a great way to explore and Kimmerstone Riding Centre offers a choice of beach rides, hill rides and trekking – what could be better than exploring on horseback!
