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 property is nestled within the small village of Rochester which is one of Northumberland's most northerly settlements. The friendly village of Otterburn is only five miles down the road and this offers an award winning village shop & café and a local pub serving an excellent range of hot and cold food. Well worth a visit is nearby Otterburn Mill. Located less than a mile from Otterburn Village the mill enjoys a well deserved reputation for the quality of its food and also offers both a clothes shop and fruit & veg area. An absolute must is a visit to the delightful Kielder area which comprises one of the European continent's largest man-made lakes and its largest man-made forest. Kielder Water is a vibrant water sports area and offers both superb visitors facilities and regular boat trips during the holiday season. Kielder Forest is a fantastic area for walking, cycling and pony trekking. Long-distance runners may like to know that the Kielder Marathon, held every October, is widely regarded as the most scenic run in Europe! The award-winning Kielder Observatory is open to the public by arrangement and is awaiting a decision on its application to be classified as a designated Night Sky Park i.e. one of the few places left in the western world where it is possible to enjoy the night sky without the distorting effects of light pollution.
