5 Reasons to Holiday in Northumberland

Katherine Jackman

Visitors: 145

We all love a good holiday, especially when it’s somewhere you’ve never been before and you’ve always wanted to see. Here in the UK we often forget just how beautiful our own country is and prefer to go abroad to visit other parts of the world when we take our holidays, but have you ever stopped and considered how many places in the UK that you’ve actually been to?

Bordering Scotland, Northumberland is one of the most beautiful places that the whole of the UK has to offer, but have you actually visited it before? Here are five reasons you should be booking a holiday in Northumberland this summer.

The History

If you’re not familiar with Northumberland’s fascinating history, now may be the time to find out! The North East has a long, rich and incredible history that is no more present than in Northumberland, with every village and noteworthy site steeped in the past. There are tonnes of castles, ruins, landmarks and sites to take in that even the most discerning historian would be satisfied. There’s so many things to see and do that you could spend a week trying to do it all and still not see everything there is on offer.

The Countryside

As an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Northumberland is home to miles and miles of countryside untouched by man, apart from the people that walk through it of course. When you visit Northumberland in the summer you are greeted with acres of heather and more plants and flowers than you could count. You could walk through the countryside for hours and never see another soul, and there’s no better way to rejuvenate than by reconnecting with the primal joys of nature.

The Coast

Another Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the coast is 30 miles long and absolutely stunning to say the least. There are plenty of charming seaside towns and villages to while away your days, eating ice cream and taking in the sight of the famous Lindisfarne seals. If you prefer the sounds of the sea over the peaceful quiet of the countryside, Northumberland has more than enough to keep you happy.

Luxury Accommodation

While Northumberland offers a great deal of rustic delights, it also has its fair share of luxury. Cheviot Holiday Cottages provides several stunning properties in the region designed to keep you in comfort and style over your trip. For example, if you’re a couple looking for a romantic weekend away, the Retreat is a luxury cottage in Northumberland that has everything that you could possibly need for some intimate time together, including a fully fitted sound system throughout the house and an incredible Jacuzzi and swim spa!

Something for Everyone

Northumberland has a lot to offer its visitors no matter who they are, whether it’s a family trip or two people after a secluded stay in one of Cheviot’s romantic cottages for couples . It offers the perfect mix of excitement, history, romance and serenity so that no matter what it is you’re after, Northumberland can provide it and give you the holiday you were dreaming of.
