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.
Owl Cottage is just six miles from the pretty village of Rothbury, known as "the Gateway to the Northumberland National Park" and nine miles from Morpeth where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Just a few miles further away is Alnwick, a busy market town dominated by the Duke of Northumberland's home, a majestic castle now famous as the location for Hogwarts Academy in the Harry Potter films. There are plenty of leisure facilities in the town and Alnwick Garden is popular with visitors. The English Heritage site Brinkburn Priory and the National Trust property at Cragside are both easily accessible from Owl Cottage.
