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.
As one of the high quality Northumberland cottages available to holiday makers Eider cottage provides a unique location.
Situated between Alnwick, with its castle of 'Harry Potter' fame and Berwick-upon-Tweed, possessed by both England and Scotland during its history, Seahouse is close to many sites of historical and natural interest making this property one of the more scenic cottages in Northumberland.
Bernard Cornwell, creator of the 'Sharpe' novels writes about the region, mentioning both the imposing fortress at Bamburgh and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in his 'Saxon' stories.
The local area also boasts a seal colony at Farne Island as well as the Northumberland National Park, which are both well worth a visit and makes Eider Cottage an ideal base for those who love wildlife and the outdoors.
