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.
Druridge Bay is widely considered to be the jewel in the crown of Northumberland's coastal Area of Outstanding Natural beauty. Children will love exploring the high dunes and older children and adults alike will enjoy the wide range of water sports available on the nearby Ladyburn Lake. A short run up the coast will bring visitors to the dramatic castle fortresses of Warkworth and Dunstanburgh and inland lies the medieval market town of Alnwick, also home to a majestic castle and recently voted the best place to live in Britain. Alnwick Castle is probably better known as the location for Hogwarts in the first Harry Potter film. The award winning Alnwick Garden was designed with family enjoyment very much in mind. It has a delightful selection of garden areas, an invigorating walk through woodland, a stunning water cascade and several venues for food and refreshments including the largest tree house in Europe. Further to the west lies the scenic splendour of the Northumberland National Park, the delightful market town of Rothbury and the National Trust property at Cragside- the first property ever to be powered by electricity.
