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.
Sweethope Lough is conveniently located for exploring the tourist delights of north-west Northumberland- an integral part of the county's ‘secret kingdom'. Wallington Hall, a simply stunning National Trust property, is close by and the Otterburn Woollen Mill, a short run up the road, has a good quality restaurant and an excellent range of outdoor clothing for sale. However, Sweethope is but a foretaste of the wonderful, wind-swept countryside that lies ahead. For west of the property lies Kielder Forest, the largest man-made forest in Europe and a true walkers' paradise, and Kielder Water; an eye-stretching expanse of water that offers walking trails, boat trips in season, water sports and somewhere to enjoy that hard earned cup of coffee. Much of the much loved Northumberland National Park lies within easy reach and offers first class walking and cycling and gorgeous landscapes.
