The England region

Northumberland is England's most northerly county, and is home to many historic homes and castles, beautiful countryside and rolling hills, glorious beaches and picturesque villages and towns.

Northumberland can be explored by car, on foot or bicycle. Each year thousands of people flock to the area for hiking and cycling, as it has many paths and routes to follow.

For those preferring to travel a little by car, there are many ancient market towns in which to shop for local produce, such as Berwick upon Tweed, Alnwick and Morpeth. For beaches Bamburgh is hard to beat and for the local catch, Craster and Seahouses are the perfect places to find fresh local seafood.

Northumberland also has its National Park, Kielder Water and Forest and many other areas of outstanding natural beauty. The county is a haven for wildlife, including red squirrels, otters, badgers, dear, rare wild birds and a magnificent seal colony around the the Farne Islands.

The climate is often bright and warm in the summer months and cool in the winter months.


The village of Fenwick is only a few miles from the coast and the beautiful beach which runs onto the causeway of Holy Island. Holy Island is one of the areas most historic visitor attractions, and is home to both Lindisfarne Castle and Lindisfarne Priory.

The village of Bamburgh is only 9 miles away, with many delightful cafes and restaurants, a beautiful beach and the famous Bamburgh Castle.
