Northern England region
The North Northumberland coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with miles of sandy beaches, Castles standing guard over the coast, wildlife breeding grounds for grey seals and puffins to name just a couple. Gateway to the Farne Islands Seahouses is a bustling harbour catering for both the small local fishing fleet and visitor boats taking day trippers, orthothologists and photographers 2 miles offshore to the outcrop of Farne Islands.
15 miles south is the dominant Alnwick Castle with its world famous Garden, Inland are more castles, historical battle fields like Flodden, fantastic walking in the Cheviots, and sections of long walks pass through the area like the end of the Pennine Way, St. Oswald's Way, St. Cuthberts Way. Cycle routes around quiet local lanes or chunks of longer rides like the Coast and Castle route 1 between Newcastle and Edinburgh. All of which make this a county of many facets, there is literally something for everyone, young or old, activity orientated or sightseeing mad there is just loads to see and do here and we're confident your break won't be long enough to do it all, or so our past visitors tell us.... - you'll just have to come back again and again....
Seahouses, once a busy fishing village, is still a bustling tourist destination. The harbour area is the emarbarkation point for those wishing to visit the Farne Islands, be it for birdwatching, photography or diving, and the pretty Old Quarter of the village set above the harbour, is laid out in stone built "squares". Once full of fisher lasses feaverishly splitting, salting & barreling herring for the home and European market, the squares have now been converted into a variety of cottages and although some are occupied by families who have lived in the village for many generations, in the main the properties are used as holiday homes.
