If you could bring a holiday wish list to life, what would it be? Family escapes to the seaside? Exploring glorious countryside? Getting close to nature? Discovering historic treasures? A holiday in a Northumbria cottage allows you to do all these things and more...

(Before we continue, you may wonder why we are promoting 'Northumbria' as a holiday destination - after all, it no longer exists! In years gone by, it was a British kingdom stretching from the Humber to Edinburgh and today the county of Northumberland takes its name from it. Just a handful of local bodies retain the original name, including the Northumbria Police and the Northumbria University in Newcastle. Thanks to artistic licence, we also prefer to use this ancient name when describing Northumberland as we firmly believe it's a much better way to describe this wonderfully romantic region.)

And how romantic it is! A heavenly blend of divine beaches, castles and villages stretch along Northumbria's breathtaking Heritage Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Don't miss the extraordinary walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. The splendid castles of Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Warkworth. Gorgeous seaside settlements like Craster and Low-Newton-by-the-Sea. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Wildlife watching around the Farne Islands. Walk the Northumberland Coast Path or St. Oswald's Way. Cycle the Coast and Castles Route. Or canter along miles of golden beaches.

Head inland and find the ever-changing landscapes of the Northumberland National Park. Dark sweeping skies just made for stargazing. Hadrian's Wall, a World Heritage Site adorned with fortresses and archaeological sites. Explore the North Pennines, a protected area of velvet moors and picturesque dales. Roam wild Redesdale. Or discover the stunning Kielder Water & Forest Park, a haven for mountain bikers and water sports' enthusiasts. Visit delightful towns like Morpeth and Rothbury. And don't forget Alnwick Castle (or Hogwarts to Harry Potter fans) and The Alnwick Garden, brimming with extraordinary features.

Wherever you go, wherever you stay, holidaying in a Northumbria cottage will have your wish list bursting with life!
