Holiday Cottages in Northumberland
With vast golden sands, a breathtaking World Heritage Site, and two Areas of Outstanding Natural beauty, the north-eastern county of Northumberland is a truly tranquil corner of the British Isles.
Magnificent landscapes span the region, from the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills in the west to the nature-filled Holy Island in the east. Stretching for nearly 2,000 square miles, Northumberland is home to big skies and even bigger scenery. And having more castles than any other county in England, there’s no shortage of historic sites connecting Northumberland to its past.
Its most renowned landmark, Hadrian’s Wall, joins the Great Barrier Reef and Yellowstone National Park on the iconic list of designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Over 80 miles of fortified stone, it’s a sight like no other. This expansive feat of engineering is steeped in history and leaves a lasting impression on all who see it, inspiring artists and writers such as George RR Martin, who used Hadrian’s Wall as inspiration for his bestselling series, Game of Thrones.
You’ll find cosy cottages speckled throughout the great Northumbrian outdoors. A mosaic of heather land, ancient meadows and deep-running valleys, the countryside is brimming with secrets. Wander miles of tranquil, unspoilt wilderness without seeing another soul, settle for a picnic in some of the counties most beautiful spots, and relax in a wildlife haven, observing rare birds crafting their nests and elusive red squirrels leaping through the trees.
Cruise to the coast and relax in a shoreside retreat with breathtaking seascapes. Northumberland has more than 30 miles of beaches, a collection of islands, and tucked-away coves, all in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Build castles on the sand, take to the waters with an afternoon of adventure sports, or stroll across the dunes with your pooch by your side.
