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 is possibly one of the most sought after holiday destinations along the stunning Northumbrian coastline and is only 6 miles from Curlew Cottage. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is bathed in glorious long, clean sandy beaches and is renowned for its abundance of wildlife including colonies of seals and breeding seabirds. Of course one of the main attractions in Bamburgh is the castle which sits on a nine acre plot of rocky plateau high above the town. The castle piers over the beach and affords stunning views from its formidable stone walls with the inside proving just as dramatic with much of its original interior still intact. The award winning golden sands which run adjacent to Bamburgh are great for walking, horse riding or swimming (if you are brave enough!) and the Northumberland Coastal Path can be picked up from here if you want to head in either direction on foot or two wheels. The town has a good set of amenities including a green grocer, newsagent, a number of restaurants, pubs and a village green. A visit here would not be complete without an excursion to Holy Island, or as its more commonly known Lindisfarne. This tidal Island is one of the top destinations for bird watching particularly during the months of May, June and July when you can watch thousands of breeding sea birds soaring through the skies. The island can be reached by road via the causeway however be sure to check the tide times as twice a day the crossing is blocked by sea water!
