Northumberland Holiday Cottages

If I could move anywhere in England, I'd end up in Northumberland. From our very first visit, the long endless beaches, the unbelievably clear light and the freedom of the Cheviots have enchanted me.

Add to this tiny empty roads ideal for riding a tandem, 2000 years of history to touch and explore, great music, fresh fish and some of the friendliest people I've come across in England and you might understand what draws me to Northumberland.

You'd be excused - after reading the above - if you wanted to explore this enchanted land for yourself.

In our book, the best way to do this is by renting one of the many Northumberland holiday cottages. In England, holiday cottages are often old buildings - manor houses, farm houses and barns - lovingly restored and lavishly equipped. The owners are proud of their area and happy to share their knowledge to make your stay a really memorable one.

You can find Northumberland holiday cottages close to the beaches, near Hadrian's Wall, adjacent to its many castles or even right in the Cheviot Hills. On this page I've picked Northumberland holiday cottages in my favourite spots, in places I like to visit. And I'll be adding more when I find them. Just choose the area you'd like to explore...

Between the Northumberland Coast & the Cheviot Hills

Northumberland's long coastline with its wonderful sandy beaches and tranquil spaces is a marvel whether you want to splash in the sea, enjoy the views or wander along the vast expanse. Photographers come for the light. Kite enthusiasts do battle with the breeze. Food enthusiasts arrive to sample the freshest of seafood. And when you turn your back on the endless green and head inland, you find castles to visit and a truly spectacular landscape to walk.

Explore Hadrian's Wall Country

This area of Northumberland - with its long stretch of Roman wall - welcomes history enthusiasts, walkers, artists and cyclists alike. If you like to explore small towns and antique shops, you'll equally feel at home here. And if you'd like to while away the afternoon in a teashop, then you can be assured of a hearty brew and truly fantastic cakes along with the warm welcome.

If you want a recommendation, then try Moorgair Cottage, which we found very comfortable and cosy when we stayed in this part of Northumberland to spend a few days exploring Hadrian's Wall!
