Swedish-style hideaways in Northumberland

Inland lakes, streams and vast rolling hills, medieval castles and endless beauty. Is this Sweden or Northumberland? 

With vast golden sands, a breathtaking World Heritage Site, and two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty — the north-eastern kingdom of Northumbria has it all. Northumberland is home to big skies and even bigger scenery, including Hadrian’s Wall. Once an open moorland, Kielder Forest is an enchanting coniferous woodland brimming with wildlife, and pathways that carve through the trees, and lakes so still they shine like glass.  Like Sweden, you’ll uncover myths, and tales of dragons and ghosts tucked away in every crevice of Northumberland’s many ancient castles. And its towns, brimming with culture, are home to some of the most welcoming people you’ll meet. Dine on the famous Quayside, or discover inspiring work at the BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Arts. This is your world away, in Northumberland.
