Why Northumberland?

Northumberland is amazing… and we want to share it with you.

It’s England’s most Northern County and offers two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the least populated National Park in the UK, more Castles and Historic Sites than any other County, stunning countryside and a glorious Heritage Coastline.

All of this can be easily explored from a central base in the Heart of Northumberland; once you discover our dazzling unspoilt landscapes, you will wonder why you ever stayed anywhere else.

Getting Around
