THE REGION

Northumberland is England's most northerly county, and also the least populated. It is a wonderfully diverse area with areas of dramatic uplands, beautiful sandy beaches and rugged coves as well as a multitude of thriving villages and market towns.

Today, Northumberland is a beautiful tranquil place. However, this peace and serenity were not always commonplace. Due to its location as a border county between England and Scotland, Northumberland was often a fractious place with many areas of, "Debateable Lands". Nearby we have the battlefields of Hedgeley Moor and Flodden.

Alnwick Castle

During the medieval periods between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries, the high lands of north Northumberland became the territories of bands of outlaws known as the Border Reivers. The Reivers have left many legacies throughout the region – from tales and ballards of dastardly and heroic deeds, to the construction of many fortified houses and towers throughout the region.

Many of the region's castles are open to visitors throughout the year and include; Chillingham Castle with its infamous dungeon (5 miles) Floors Castle and Gardens in Kelso (22 miles) Alnwick Castle and Gardens (16 miles) - "The Windsor of the North" and ancestral home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, the location of Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies. The dramatic cliff-top ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle, and further North, Bamburgh Castle - complete with it's own dragon legend, then there is the photogenic Lindisfarne Castle situated on the tidal Holy Island.

Yeavering Bell

The hills around Turvelaws also show signs of human habitation from prehistoric times. A little further up the valley on the edge of the Cheviot Hills lies the remains of Yeavering Bell. Once an Anglo Saxon palace and the largest prehistoric hillfort in the region.

Nearby Wooler is a traditional Northumbria market town with a wide selection of shops, restaurants, bistros and its own whisky distillery, Ad Gefrin.
