Self-catering holidays in Northumberland
Northumberland is England’s northernmost county up by the Scottish Borders 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 an area of outstanding natural beauty where the countryside is wild and rugged and the heritage coastline is studded with beautiful hidden coves and sandy beaches. An historic county, Northumberland is littered with remnants of its impressive past, such as Holy Island and Berwick upon Tweed with their 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 and seals. There are also some good beaches there, so if all that twitching leaves you drained, you can relax by the Northumberland coast.
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 countyand Northumberland National Park 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.
