Berwick-upon-Tweed and Northumberland.
Whether you are staying with us for two days or two weeks prepare to discover just how much Northumberland has to offer.
Stretching from the Scottish Borders to Hadrian’s Wall, with not just one, but two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a National Park. Come to Northumberland and you could be walking along vast expanses of dune-fringed beaches, climbing our dramatic hills and taking in glorious sweeps of valleys or just revelling in our wide-open spaces with big skies.
You could be discovering the resilient and independent spirit of Northumberland, with its turbulent, historic past. Exploring our many dramatic castles; catapulted back 2,000 years along Hadrian’s Wall or marvelling at the birthplace of the 8th-Century Lindisfarne Gospels on Holy Island. You’ll meet our characters too, and experience Northumberland hospitality which is famous the world-over.
You could be active, walking along some of the UK’s most legendary walking routes, or a short stroll will take you to Ancroft village and the beautiful St. Anne’s Church. Or for the cyclist, try our many quiet roads and cycling routes. See our Cycling Page for some suggestions.
You could entertain the children with ghostly tales at our historic houses, follow in the foot steps of boy wizard Harry Potter with broom stick training or sword fights, set sail on an island adventure or board a steam train.
Or you could just take time to relax. Star gaze under the darkest skies in England, breathe in the fragrance of some of Britain’s greatest gardens or indulge in a spot of retail therapy at our traditional market towns and villages. Or sit and relax to peaceful birdsong and watch the bees seeking pollen on Phacelia (blue tansy) which abounds around the park.
