Northern England region
Northumberland is on of the most histopric places in Europe. As well as the county that has the Roman Wall and where Christianity first came to Britain. It is the home of the infamous Border Reavers, a wild bunch of outlaws who made the vikings look like nuns. It is also the home of the Jacobite rebellions of 1715 and 1745 and the same location (Dilston, just two miles from Corbridge) was also where the Gunpowder plot was formed in the 1600's. Even today you have the award winning living history museum of Beamish only 30 miles away and you are less than 50 miles by dual carriageway to Alnwick castle, better known to most young people as "Hogwarts" of Harry potter fame. There are lots to do and see for all ages and the walks are stunning especially up around Blanchland on the Durham border just 10 miles away. Once you have had a week in this area you will be comming back for many weeks to come just to see what you discovered the first week. Nothumberland is not just for holidays, it's for Life. Or at least a lifetime of holidays!
