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.
Skylark Cottage is located just over 3 miles from Lowick where there are local facilities available. The elegant Georgian town of Berwick which straddles the salmon rich River Tweed is 15 miles away and offers a wide array of amenities including shops, cafes, a theatre / playhouse and indoor swimming. From here you can catch the train to explore further afield. Take a trip to the cultural cit of Edinburgh north or the party city of Newcastle to the south. The welcoming town of Wooler sits at the foot of the Cheviot Hills only 6 miles inland. Or travel to the coastline, only a short drive east and stroll along the wide expanse of golden sandy beach Bamburgh is renowned for. The tidal island of Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island, is reached by a causeway which is safe to cross twice daily.
