Self-catering holidays in Northumberland
Northumberland is England’s northernmost county and is firmly establishing itself as something of a holiday hotspot. Book one of our holiday cottages in Northumberland and you’ll find yourself in a region where the countryside is wild and rugged and the coastline is studded with beautiful, sandy beaches. An historic county, Northumberland is littered with remnants of its impressive past, such as the imposing fortresses, castles and monasteries.
However, there’s much more to Northumberland than history. Wildlife buffs who use one of our Northumberland cottages as a holiday HQ will find they have good access to the Farne Islands, which is teeming with puffins. There are also some good beaches there, so if all that twitching leaves you drained, you can relax by the sea.
Northumberland also has a gigantic ace up its sleeve - the lack of light pollution gives an unparalleled view of the stars on clear nights, and parts of the county are designated as ‘Dark Sky Reserves’. Sitting outside one of our holiday cottages in Northumberland, with a cheeky glass of your favourite tipple and staring at the stars ticks all the right boxes.
