When I think of Northumberland it stirs memories of peaceful golden sandy beaches, rolling hills, sheer cliffs and untamed rugged moorland with wildlife in abundance. I think of romantic castles, ancient battlefields and fortified towns, every place with its own heritage and tale to tell. Gastronomic delights of fresh fish and seafood await the visitor as does stunning views and an excellent variety of sporting activities. Above all, as found in the North of England, there’s always a friendly welcome from the locals in this county which has more to offer the visitor than you would expect.
