Surrounded by fields and pastures yet with the convenience of a local pub, shop and the A697 running through the village, Long Framlington in Coquetdale could be an ideal base for discovering some of the best that Northumberland has to offer on a cottage holiday.
What Longframlington offers for Cottage Breaks
For those who haven’t discovered what Northumbria has to offer for self-catering holidays yet, a real treat awaits. With a majestic landscape more akin to that of Scotland than England, Northumberland with its rich history, Hadrian’s Wall Country, Northumberland National Park, historical castles and gorgeous golden sandy beaches, just keeps on giving.
Places to Visit whilst on a Cottage Break in Long Framlington
• The Northumberland National Park with its stunning landscape and excellent walks is a joy to discover (take note though parking isn’t free at many of the tourist points of interest so do take plenty of change with you).
• Castle Visiting is a must in Northumbria and there are so many castles to visit that deciding which to put on your must-see list will be the only challenge. Some of our favourites include:
o Alnwick Castle (just 12 miles from Longframlington and located in the town of Alnwick), features beautiful gardens and a claim to fame of having featured in one of the Harry Potter films.
o The ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle (around 17 miles from Longframlington) are well worth a visit for the fine coastal views and invigorating walk you must take to reach it. This castle though isn’t recommended for those with young kids as the walk to reach it is long. This castle is also located close to Craster which is an incredibly pretty Northumbrian fishing village.
o Bamburgh Castle (some 27 miles from Longframlington), has to be one of Northumbria’s most photographed castles with its absolutely superb location perched above the golden sands of Bamburgh beach.
• Days out by the seaside also make for great fun. Bamburgh’s beach is stunning and kids will love jumping from sand-dunes, paddling and sand-castle building (see if you can build a replica of the real Bamburgh Castle in the sand!) or maybe even a spot of body-boarding. Boulmer beach is a favourite with the locals which says it all really.
Longframlington could be an excellent choice for a family holiday where you can enjoy time in the countryside and by the coast, for a break with friends who enjoy outdoorsy type activities or for a romantic break, this area of Northumberland is truly stunning.
