Northumberland National Park

With its distinctive open and tranquil landscapes and unique heritage, Northumberland National Park will provide you with wonderful memories to savour.

Stretching from Hadrian’s Wall in the south, through the rolling valleys of the Tyne and Rede to the impressive hills of the Cheviots on the Scottish Border, the National Park has some of the most unspoilt landscapes in the country.

The park is also part of our dark skies award so has its own fair share of stunning night skies once the sun goes down.

Scottish Borders

Imposing castles, elegant abbeys, stately mansions and dramatic ruins make the Scottish Borders perfect for culture vultures. Add to this the finest music, art and fresh local food in idyllic surroundings.

Where trees and hills abound, mountain bikers and cyclists won’t be far away. The Scottish Borders is the regular haunt of all kinds of bikers on trailquest rides, cross country trails or high octane downhilling.

Northumberland

Imagine a magical kingdom with ancient castles, golden beaches, rolling hills, great parks, and wild moorland. Such a kingdom exists – it’s Northumberland and it truly is a magical and inspiring place.

The magic is here because Northumberland is so many things to different people. It has friendly market towns and a rich arts scene. History comes alive in Northumberland, as does the great outdoors! We offer fantastic walking, fishing, golf, sailing and riding. Come for a day trip, stay in a cosy cottage or B&B, or enjoy a world-class hotel. While you’re here, feast on many of our local foods – everything from lamb, fresh vegetables, and oysters through to honey, jams and luxury ice cream.

Northumberland is a county filled with contrast. It is England’s last great wilderness and it really does offer something for everyone.
