Places of Traveller Interests in Northumberland

By Kavin Bremner Subscribe to RSS | December 14th 2011 | Views:

The choice of destination for your holidays is critical in determining how enjoyable your break will be. Numerous historical sites, fantastic countryside, stunning views, miles of golden sandy beaches, quaint market towns, incredible local cuisine and valuable heritage are just some of the reason to visit Northumberland, which can be taken advantage of by choosing great accommodation, provided by Tidal Homes’ luxury holiday cottages.

Our Northumberland Cottages offer many facilities making your stay very comfortable and stress free. Just a few highlights of Northumberland are: FarneIslands, Cragside, Warkworth Castle, Alnmouth, Wallington, Berwick and Brinkburn. The blend of historical marvels and natural beauty makes Northumberland a gem of a holiday destination.

Farne Island is known by almost every bird lover. Over 200,000 nesting birds and chicks can be found in these windswept islands during breeding season. Puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes, gulls and guillemots can be expected to be seen during a trip to the island.

Another place of character among guests is Belsay. The setting of the estate is in thirty acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. It has a castle which has a neoclassical hall built 500 years ago. Brinkburn is a stunning 12th Century Priory. It is a picturesque spot based along the river Coquet. It is a great trip when you visit Northumberland as the church has been restored completely, including a new roof.

Your trip to Northumberland will be left incomplete if you don’t visit the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The Holy Isle has been a place of pilgrimage for more than 1,300 years. Most of the time the islands causeway remains submerged by the sea and thus the island can be accessed only twice a day. The Priory and Castle are a stunning and humbling visit.

Warkworth Castle is a must visit if you are on a vacation in Northumberland. Built at the end of the 14th Century, the castle is almost complete including its roof. The castle used to have a fine gatehouse, great hall, chapel and towered walls.

An insight into Northumberland’s rich heritage can be experienced in Woodhorn where a working Colliery still runs as a museum,and the most northerly town of England, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, cannot fail to impress. The town was fought over by the English & Scottish for hundreds of years, and the haunting atmosphere still remains, creating a fascinating walled market town. The fine collections of interiors can be seen in Wallington mansion which is set in Border Reiver country. The mansion is surrounded by woodlands, lawns and hundred acres of lakes.

Alnmouth is a delightful holiday resort which is the type of seaside village we normally see on picture postcards. With so many places of historical and cultural significance, Northumberland and the area around it offers the chance of delightful holiday. Your stay can be enriched by booking accommodation in advance. Visit us at:
