Northumbria is a real hidden gem and if you're looking for a
rural escape to truly get-away-from-it-all, our country cottages in
Northumbria are just what you need.
Welcome to Britain's 'big sky county', where you'll discover the most visually spectacular landscapes. The region boasts two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the Northumberland Coast, with its golden sand beaches and awesome castles and the North Pennines, with its heather-clad hills and extraordinary wildlife. The county also has a National Park known to be the UK's least visited, so there's no better place to enjoy a huge range of activities in total peace and seclusion. Walking, cycling, riding, birdwatching, fishing, golf - everything imaginable on a Northumbrian country cottage holiday.
Just next door is Hadrian's Wall Country, another paradise for walking and home to some splendid World Heritage Sites. Also close by is the Kielder Water & Forest Park - superb for families and outdoor enthusiasts, with a wide range of water sports on a vast manmade lake and walking and cycling forest trails.
Add the fascinating historic sites of the Border region and the breathtaking countryside of the Cheviot Hills and we promise you'll be smitten. That's why we feature such wonderful country cottages in Northumbria.
