The Northumberland region
Northumberland is a mix of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall,surrounded 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. There are thousands of paths and tracks all through the beautiful countryside, providing exhilarating fresh air and wide-open spaces for walkers and cyclists alike.
The historic town of Alnwick is only 10 miles away where you will find a thriving, historic market town with something a bit special! Even if you are not green fingered, a visit to Alnwick Gardens is a must, where you can stroll around the stunning gardens and waterfalls. Harry Potter fans of all ages should visit Alnwick Castle (or Hogwart's School) and relive some of the favourite scenes from the popular films.
The Heritage coastline is dotted with castles and villages and stunning beaches – ideal for walking all year round. The Cheviot Hills are only a short drive away offering superb views across to Holy Island and Lindisfarne. Alternatively, a stroll along the coats to Bamburgh Castle (only 1 mile away) or a visit to Holy Island are both ideal for a family day out.
Craster is a small fishing village in Northumberland. It is renouned for its smoked Kippers, a fish that is prepared by L Robson and Sons Ltd in oak smoked barrels and is enjoyed by people throughout the country and even overseas.
From the rocky shore, there are amazing views of the impressive Dunstanburgh Castle which dominates this beautiful stretch of coastline. The castle is one of the largest fortifications in Northern England and can be reached on foot along a picturesque coastal footpath from the village across the fields following the rocky shore.
