These 4-star, self-catering holiday cottages in Northumberland are in the perfect location to explore the many attractions of both this beautiful county and the Scottish Borders. It is a land of castles, ruined abbeys and fine houses and gardens: Alnwick, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh castles are amongst the finest; the Border towns of Jedburgh and Melrose have impressive ruined abbeys; and National Trust properties Cragside House and Wallington Hall are within easy reach. The Holy Isle of Lindisfarne is a must-visit (check the tide times). Kielder Water and Forest Park has cycling tracks and walks; the Kielder Birds of Prey centre; and an observatory (booking ahead essential). This is wonderful, undiscovered walking country whether coastal or hill walking; but if the bright lights are more your thing, the cities of Newcastle and Edinburgh are within easy reach. There’s so much to do, you’ll want to come back!
