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.
The friendly village of Corbridge offers a wonderful base for a holiday. Situated close to the sparkling waters of the River Tyne, now regarded as one of the cleanest waterways in England with a growing reputation for salmon fishing, the village offers a picturesque streetscape, a good range of interesting shops and high-quality food & drink outlets. It also has its own train station enabling a visit to be made to Newcastle in approximately half an hour. Corbridge is only three miles away from the popular market town of Hexham. The range of amenities here is superb and includes several large supermarkets, a leisure centre, theatre & cinema complex and a number of specialist shops and food and drink establishments. Hexham is a town steeped in history and visitors are recommended to spend a few hours at its stunning medieval abbey. Lovers of the ‘turf' should enjoy a visit to Hexham Racecourse located nearby. This area of Northumberland was occupied by the Romans and superb remains can be seen at a number of sites and of course there is the stunning Roman Wall to view- now a designated World Heritage Site. Bird Lovers may wish to visit the mighty Kielder Reservoir. The facilities here for day-trippers are superb and over the summer months full information on how to view a pair of visiting Ospreys, one of our rarest birds of prey, can be obtained from the Leaplish Waterside Park. Stargazers should seek out the award-winning Kielder Observatory, access to be prearranged, which provides the public with expert advice and advanced equipment for viewing the night-sky. Keen walkers will love this area. Allenheads to the west for example, has sublime walking and cycling country. Those needing a city or cultural fix should visit the Gateshead Metro Centre, one of the largest shopping centres in Europe, or the Baltic Centre and The Sage, both located in Gateshead. The former was the recent host to the Turner Prize and the award winning Sage hosts a full programme of events throughout the year. Highly recommended for an interesting day out is the Centre For Life museum in Newcastle. This offers a fun-filled perspective on our genetic make-up and has a number of entertaining interactive exhibits.
