Luxury holiday cottages in Northumberland, some with pools.
Northumberland is a mystery for many British people. It may be a county that most drive through en-route to Scotland or England. I know that I have driven through many times, admiring the countryside visible from the road.
The county is sparsely populated compared to some of England. There are large stretches of countryside between villages and numerous secluded farms. It is a holiday destination where seclusion and peace are found.
The fishing is good in Northumberland. People come to fish on the various rivers; the Breamish, Coquet, Blyth, Wansbeck, Allen, Pont and Tyne. Hire a boat for fishing on Kielder Water. Rent a pine lodge or cottage specifically for a fishing break in Northumberland and have a good rest into the bargain.
Secluded cottage that were once shepherd’s huts up on the moors offer more scope for tranquil breaks. All those people who desire an escape for the stress of modern life can find peace of mind in the north east. It wasn’t all peace and quiet in the past. Castles and ruins still stand on the hills, testament to the warring tribes through history.
Most of us are familiar with the dramatic view of Bamburgh Castle on the coast silhouetted against the sky. Visit Bamburgh, Alnwick and Featherstone Castles for great days out during your holiday. Much of Northumbria is very dark at night, creating magnificent places for star gazing. It is not just young romantics who might enjoy the experience. people of all ages marvel at the clear night skies as they pick out the constellations. During the winter there is even a chance of spotting the greenish flickers of the northern lights.Do make a point of stopping and staying awhile in Northumbria.
