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.
North-west Northumberland is national park country and Harlow Hill is ideally located for exploring the scenic treasures of the Northumberland National Park. The landscape is characterised by mile after mile of open countryside and the lung-bursting Cheviot Hills. As one would expect, this is superb walking and mountain bike country. Well worth a visit is Kielder Forest, the largest man-made forest in Europe, and the mighty Kielder Reservoir. The former has a superb range of walking and biking trails for all abilities and the latter also offers superb walks, a visitors' centre and café, fishing, and in season boat trips criss-crossing this huge expanse of water. The market town of Hexham and the idyllic village of Corbridge should also be prominent on the must-see list. Hexham has a truly stunning abbey and a wealth of good facilities and interesting shops. Corbridge also has a number of specialist retail outlets and some superb tea rooms. Golf-lovers should sample the highly regarded golf course at Matfen Hall, which is less than ten miles from Harlow Hill
