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.

The location is first class within a few minutes walk of a great beach, from which you can also walk to Warkworth and Alnmouth. We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting this beautiful area.

The cottage has everything that you could need and is located in a great place for exploring the beautiful coast and pretty towns and castles nearby. There is a lovely beach just a short walk across the road from the property and the seaside town of Seahouses is also just a short walk away. The village has lots of interesting shops and great places to eat and drink.We especially enjoyed walking along the beach at Seahouses to the spectacular Bamburgh castle then returning to the comfortable homely cottage.We felt sad when our time at the cottage came to an end but we hope to return soon.We should add that the owners of Lennor cottage are very helpful and friendly.
