Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in Northumbria your home away from home

Northumbria in the north east of England, is often cited as the ‘most exciting, beautiful and friendly region in the whole of England’, and the claim is quite possibly true. There are a whole range of bustling towns and quaint villages which adorn the wild, rugged terrain Northumbria is known for. Whether you are taking self catering Northumbria accommodation in a town or a remote log cabin in Northumbria’s wildest region, you will almost certainly be completely endeared to the region after just a few days of your holiday.

Things to do on holiday in Northumbria

Northumbria’s attractions are almost endless. The vast expanses of wild countryside are a real haven of activity, allowing visitors to really escape the hustle and bustle of their daily routines, getting far into the wilderness with just the wind in their ears and the sun on their faces. The Northumberland National Park and the Cleveland Hills are perfect for walking, cycling and riding holidays. There is a huge range of landscapes in Northumbria, from the woodland of Rothbury to the exposed hills of Durham Dales, from the seabird rich cliffs of the Cleveland Way to the wide beaches of the Northumbrian coast. Wherever you take a self catering holiday cottage in Northumbria, you will never be far from exceptionally beautiful countryside, rich in wildlife and perfect for walking, cycling and riding.

During the summer months, Northumbria’s beaches are a real treat to visit. With many miles of unspoilt coastline, finding an idyllic, dune backed beach is never difficult, especially from the more remote log cabin accommodation in Northumbria. Much of the coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Kielder Water and Forest Park is a particular favourite for those visiting the coast.

Northumbria’s long history has meant that there is an enormous wealth of historical attractions in Northumbria. Attractions range from the Darlington Railway Museum, documenting the start of the industrial revolution to the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site, from the 25 imposing medieval castles to many important battlefields of the English-Scots history.

Northumbria’s urban centres are awash with entertainment, culture and attractions. Northumbria is home to the famous cities of Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Durham, offering superb shopping, monuments recognised around the world and a calendar full of events. The Centre of Contemporary Art, the Alnwick Playhouse and Durham’s Gala Theatre are three of the finest places to find culture from self catering Northumbria accommodation.

Places to visit on holiday to Northumbria

Northumberland is a wonderful county which marks the border of England and Scotland. Containing the whole of the Northumberland National Park, Kielder Water and many of Northumberland’s finest beaches, not to mention a wonderful stretch of Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland is a fantastic place to take a Northumbria holiday cottage for holidays in the great outdoors.

County Durham is a small county, but filled to bursting point with fantastic Northumbria attractions. Durham Cathedral, famously cited as the ‘best cathedral on Planet Earth’ by the author Bill Bryson, is well worth investigating from any Northumbria holiday cottage, but the castles, museums and the beautiful beaches of the Heritage Coast are huge assets for those in Northumbria accommodation in County Durham too.

Travel to Northumbria

A holiday cottage in Northumbria is fantastically easy to reach. As long as you have not taken a really rural log cabin in Northumbria, you can reach your self catering accommodation within just 3 hours of leaving London by train, or just 40 minutes by plane, landing at Newcastle Airport (NCL), which is connected to airports throughout the UK and Europe, and Durham Tees Valley (MME) which receives flights fromLondonand Aberdeen in Scotland.

                                                              An excellent house for a family reunion

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We looked for a property to host four generations, aged from 1 year to 91 years. This property was perfect. With four large ground floor bedrooms, it made it easy for the elderly and young to retire. The upstairs housed the, again, spacious and fully kitted out kitchen with living area and dining area having splendid views towards Seahouses. There was plenty to do in the house for the families, with games, DVD's and free WiFi available. The house was immaculate with everything clean and everything provided. The beach is only two minutes away and is a great place for children to play The village of Beadnell was also a bonus with two hotels complete with good bars and great foot, but the real bonus was the Salt Water Café that at night turned into an excellent restaurant with fantastic seafood dishes available. All in all an excellent location and house, making it suitable for all ages. A fantastic holiday! I am happy to give this property five stars. It was a pleasure to stay here.

                                                              Truly a Haven

                                                              We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for our first visit to Northumberland. No.3 The Haven was the perfect cottage in the best location with the beach practically on your doorstep. The cottage catered to our every need and is by far the best equipped self-catering home we've stayed in and the owners also provided a lovely welcome tray with much appreciated goodies. We spent many hours on the fantastic beach and many more exploring the surrounding area. We hope to return.
