The Tyne and Wear region
The village of Harlow Hill lies on the B6318 or “Military” Road running along the course of Hadrian's Wall.
It is approximately 12 miles to the bustling city of Newcastle upon Tyne but sits in wide open countryside with views over the Tyne Valley.
The complex at Harlow Hill MXVI is the ideal base from which to explore the many sights and sounds of Northumberland. Nearby market towns and villages such as Wylam, Corbridge and Hexham provide great days out for exploring and browsing galleries, attractions and shops each with their own distinctive character and individual charm.
For the fisherman, Harlow Hill MXVI is superbly situated a short distance from one of the county's most respected still water fisheries at Whittle Dene with the River Tyne only a few minutes car journey away. Massively improved over the years, the Tyne now boasts one of the most consistent seasonal salmon and sea-trout runs in England and day tickets are available from various outlets.
For the keen golfer, the location provides a wealth of opportunities on your very doorstep with excellent golf courses at Prudhoe and Matfen as well as the new Lee Westwood world class championship course at Close House, all within a 5 mile radius. The famous Slaley Hall championship courses meanwhile are just 15 miles away.
The lover of the outdoors will find themselves spoilt for choice throughout the region. For the keen walkers and cyclists, the length of Hadrian’s Wall, which literally runs past the door, will allow glimpses into some of the most spectacular countryside in all of England. Moving further afield the county opens up for exploration – the beautiful wilderness of the Cheviot Hills, easily visible from many parts of the Wall, where often, you are more likely to encounter a wild goat than another person! This is the “Land of the Far Horizon” spoken of by George Trevelyan, and now part of the Northumberland National Park, it has often been called England’s Last Wilderness.
Around one hour's drive to the West brings you to the outdoor playground of Kielder Forest & Kielder Water – The site of the largest man-made lake in Europe and at 250 square miles, the largest working forest in England. Miles of spectacular and professionally designed and constructed mountain bike trails, a birds of prey centre, a multitude of inspirational outdoor art installations, sailing, water skiing and kayaking makes it a fantastic destination for all of the family. Thanks to the unpolluted nature of the skies, Kielder also boasts it’s very own observatory where you can gaze at distant galaxies and learn about the universe.
A trip to the North East coast is often one of the most memorable days out for the visitor. Wildly varied – from rugged cliff-top castles to explore to stunning sandy beaches to stroll along and paddle in the sea.
Whatever your interest, Northumberland is sure to have something for you. And Harlow Hill MXVI is an ideal base from which to explore this ancient and very beautiful place. We look forward to welcoming you and helping you to discover it for yourself.
Newcastle upon Tyne
For lovers of music, film and theatre
NewcastleGateshead has more theatres per person than anywhere in the UK, highlights include Newcastle’s Theatre Royal (regional home to the Royal Shakespeare Company) and the Sunderland Empire providing world-class theatre to suit all tastes from West End productions to esoteric drama. Live Theatre produces work as varied and diverse as its' audiences and Northern Stage is a world-class for theatre making.
The Metro Radio Arena and The Sage Gateshead attract big-name performers and underground acts alike with their versatile performance spaces, whilst film-buffs are more than catered for with Metrocentre’s state-of-the-art ODEON IMAX screens as well as Newcastle’s smaller independent cinemas such as the Tyneside Cinema.
Arts and Culture in the region
Gateshead’s BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art with its rolling programme of exhibitions is the biggest gallery of its kind in the world – an organisation whose ethos and mere existence captures NewcastleGateshead’s passion for culture which began, arguably, with Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North. There's also a wide range of smaller galleries across the area including the Hatton Gallery which has a fantastic collection of historical and contemporary art.
Explore our History and Heritage
In the heart of Newcastle City Centre the Castle Keep, one of the country’s finest examples of a Northern Keep, hints at the region’s thousands of years of heritage in contrast to the neo-classical architecture of Grainger Town, with Grey Street winning Academy of Urbanism’s Great Street Award 2010. Attractions such as 2,000 year old Tynemouth Priory and Hadrian’s Wall confirm the region’s rich past and complement the offering of museums like the newly refurbished and extended Great North Museum: Hancock.
Miles of stunning coastline and beaches
Although we can’t promise there’ll always be sun, we guarantee you’ll be impressed by our stunning coastline which, studded with some of the country’s best beaches, provides the perfect setting for a summer day at the seaside or a refreshing autumnal stroll. In 2010, all of Tynemouth's beaches were awarded prestigious Blue Flag status alongside Sunderland’s Roker and Seaburn beaches and South Shields’ Sandhaven, guaranteeing the highest standards in safety and cleanliness.
A centre of shopping excellence
NewcastleGateshead is well-known for its excellent shopping provided by Eldon Square, the UK’s largest city centre shopping complex, and the Metrocentre, Europe’s largest indoor shopping and leisure complex. Paired with the range of boutiques around Market Street, High Bridge and Hood Street and scattered throughout fashionable suburbs like Jesmond, as well as the quaint and quirky markets of Tynemouth and the Armstrong Bridge market is a shopaholic’s dream!
A wide variety of dining and diverse tastes
Our brilliant nightlife is a point we needn’t labour, and you won’t be short of surprising places to eat, drink and be merry during the daytime too – whether it's dining out, calling into a cosy bar or being spotted in a cutting-edge club, NewcastleGateshead and its surroundings provide a feast of choice. For something a little different why not try Blackfriars restaurant which, housed in a historic friary in Newcastle City Centre, is the country's oldest dining-room, or Cafe 21, one of four restaurants owned by the well-known North Eastern chef Terry Laybourne.
For those of a sporty and active nature
Regularly hosting the best in international athletics talent at Gateshead International Stadium, plus climbing walls, the UK’s largest water park, a dry ski slope, surfing school and much more, it’s not just football we’re passionate about... although if you fancy a kick around or want to watch a match in one of our two impressive stadiums, Newcastle United's St James' Park and Sunderland's Stadium of Light, we promise we won't say no.
