The Scottish Borders 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.
This area of Northumberland is renowned for the quality of its salmon fishing. With two excellent fishing rivers close to hand in the prestigious, salmon-rich River Tweed and the River Whiteadder fishermen will find the location of great appeal and be pleased to know complimentary fishing for trout can be arranged on the Whiteadder. First class amenities including three major supermarkets, a cinema & arts centre, leisure complex and good collection of independent shops and tea rooms are available in the friendly town of Berwick, which is a brief three miles drive away and well worth a visit. For a big city fix, there are regular trains from Berwick Station to the majestic city of Edinburgh which arguably has the most comprehensive range of tourist attractions outside of London. Visitors really are spoilt for choice here. To the east is the stunning coastline of Northumberland, a significant portion of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to the south-west the wild and elemental beauty of the Northumberland National Park. To the north lies Scotland's delightful border towns and a number of superb attractions such as the sublime walking trails to be found within the Hirsel Estate located near Cold stream.
