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.
Though the epitome of tranquillity today this area once featured heavily in one of the most prominent episodes in British History. The Battle of Flodden, fought in 1513, was an epic encounter between the English and the Scots and centred upon the peaceful village of Branxton. The English army took the day resulting in almost wholesale decimation of the Scottish nobility and the death in battle of the Scottish monarch, King James IV, who was laid out for all to see in Branxton Church. The little village of Millfield, just under three miles away, has a nice restaurant, pub and local shop. The lovely Georgian town of Berwick is a brief drive away to the north and has a good range of amenities and some invigorating riverside walks. There are regular trains from Berwick Station to the beautiful Scottish city of Edinburgh and its amazing range of activities and attractions. To the east lies the sublime holiday village of Bamburgh and its majestic castle and gorgeous beach. Highly recommended is a visit to the lonely island of Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island. The island is reached via a tidal causeway and is reputed to be the birthplace of Christianity in England. Hill walkers should visit the cheery town of Wooler to the south as it provides a gateway to the Cheviot Hills and its fantastic walking trails.
