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.

Alnwick

Approximately twenty miles of the Northumberland coastline is officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Craster forms part of this dramatic and beautiful landscape. To the north keen walkers can follow the sublime footpath leading to the spectacular Beadnell Bay. This is a popular centre for summer water-sports and young children will adore playing ‘hide and seek' in the high dunes fringing the golden sands of the bay. In the breeding season the bay is alive with wildlife and boasts a protected tern colony. Further to the north lies the tourist-friendly coastal settlement of Seahouses which offers an excellent range of amenties including a number of boat trips over to the nearby, National Trust managed Farne Islands. A few miles farther on is the charming village of Bamburgh, which boasts a truly majestic castle and another gorgeous beach. Inland is the historic market town of Alnwick which dates back to medieval times. Recently voted by the influential Country Life magazine as the best place to live in Britain it is a super place to visit with much to see such as the iconic Alnwick Castle- the location for Hogwarts in the first Harry Potter film- and the award winning Alnwick Garden. Book lovers must visit the iconic Barter Books, reputed to be one of the largest second-hand book stores in the whole of the UK.
