The Northumberland region

Northumberland is "England's last wilderness" where many stunning sights can be enjoyed in relative peace and tranquility.

A trip is not complete without seeing Hadrian's Wall. Although Hadrian's Wall was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, it remains unguarded, allowing those interested in the site full advantage.

To the north you have the Scottish border and the hills of the Cheviot; and to the north-west, the route through Elsdon and Coquetdale to Rothbury, Alnwick and Lindsfarne, or Holy Island, and the Farne Islands.

Famous as a stopping point on the Pennine Way trail Bellingham is popular with walkers and cyclists. The village provides everything that travellers need before they explore Kielder, Hadrian's Wall or even further to coastal delights such as Alnwick Gardens and Bamburgh Castle. Holy Island is unforgettable and for bird lovers the Farne Islands are unmissable.


Bellingham is a village in Northumberland, to the north-west of Newcastle upon Tyne and is situated on the Hareshaw burn as it meets the River North Tyne. The name of the town is pronounced Bell-ing-jum

Hareshaw Linn is a waterfall on the Hareshaw Burn near Bellingham and provides a fantastic walk for all the family.

The village and villagers have been described as the friendliest in the UK and dog owners always seem especially pleased that most of the pubs are dog-friendly.

The Heritage Centre is the local museum and its exhibitions include the Border Counties Railway, the Border Reivers, mining, farming, the photography of W P Collier, and the Stannersburn Smithy.

The Grade-I listed St Cuthbert's Church (13th-century, substantially reconstructed in the early 17th century) is described as 'almost unique in England' owing to its stone barrel vault, which runs the length of the Nave and extends into the South Transept. Within the churchyard is "The Long Pack", purportedly the grave of a burglar who attempted to infiltrate a local house by hiding in a beggar's pack, but was discovered after he suffered an ill-timed coughing fit, and was promptly run through with the sword of the house's proprietor.

Two miles north-east at Hole Farm is the sixteenth century Hole Bastle, a well-preserved example of a bastle house. Bastle houses are found along the Anglo-Scottish border, in the areas formerly plagued by border Reivers.
