Northern England region
Northumberland is England's most northern county - a magical place filled with ancient castles, Roman forts, heritage coastline, rolling hills, rugged moorland, Kielder Water and Forest Park, Hadrian's Wall, and numerous friendly Northumberland towns and villages.
Humshaugh lies approximately 6 miles from Hexham, (an historic, bustling town in the heart of the Tyne Valley), in a bend of the River North Tyne. The village has one main street, many unexpected lanes and some lovely old houses. It is surrounded by trees and fields and is registered as a conservation area. It has its own village shop, Post Office, village hall and church, and is perfectly situated for quick and easy access to Hadrian's Wall, Kielder Forest, and the Pennine Way.
