Getting There

How to get to Northumberland

Though it is possible to get to the county via public transport, visitors to Northumberland holiday lettings will probably find it more convenient to bring a car. The area is largely rural and it will be difficult to reach a lot of the attractions without driving.

Northumberland is a largely rural area, so there are no airports within the county itself. However, Newcastle Airport is located just a short drive away and Northumberland is within easy reach from there.

Weather & Climate

Weather in Northumberland

Northumberland has slightly better weather than other parts of the UK. Summer days tend to be a little warmer and it’s also drier throughout the year, receiving less rainfall than the UK average.

That said, Northumberland isn’t somewhere you visit primarily for the weather. Winters can be very cold, while the roughly 150 days of rain are spread over the whole year - so even in the summer, you might have to put up with some wet weather. It’s best to make sure your Northumberland holiday lettings are well stocked with waterproof clothing.

Attractions

Northumberland’s great attractions

Northumberland is a county full of history. Start your trip with a visit to Hadrian’s Wall, a World Heritage Site that was built in the 2nd century A.D. by the Romans. Drive to the wall just to get a close-up look, or amble along the adjacent footpath and make an afternoon of it. However you choose to experience the wall, it's worthwhile spending some time at a spot that has been the centre of so many political and military scuffles throughout Britain’s long history.

The stunning Alnwick Castle has been a fixture in Northumberland since 1309, and is one of the largest and best-preserved castles in the country. It has been used as a filming location for many films and television shows over the years, including Downton Abbey, two Robin Hood films and the first two instalments of Harry Potter. Visit the magnificent state rooms or roam the extensive grounds, and you’ll be walking through history.

You’ll no doubt be spending a lot of time in Northumberland National Park while staying in your Northumberland holiday cottage. This large area offers great opportunities for outdoor activities like walking, cycling, horse riding and birdwatching.

There are also many markets that take place each month in the National Park. Here you can buy high-quality, locally produced cheeses, jam and meat products, among other things. At night, head to the park and look towards the stars – the area is Europe’s largest Dark Sky Park, and you’ll see many hundreds of thousands of twinkling stars on a clear night.

Family Activities

Northumberland holidays with children

Your children will love their stay in a Northumberland holiday cottage. The wide open spaces, plethora of sights and sheer uniqueness of this destination will be sure to stir their imaginations. They’ll love the gruesome history of Alnwick Castle, which is as much fun for children as it is for adults.

Experience local life at Chillingham Wild Cattle, where visitors are offered the chance to walk among the animals in their natural environment. Kids will love the animals, plus enjoy being out in the beautiful countryside. This is a primitive experience that will connect kids to nature during their trip.

At Kielder Observatory, you can let your little ones fulfil their dream of becoming space explorers. They can take a look through the telescope and also attend one of the fascinating daily events. Experiences that are both fun and educational are not always easy to come by, but the Kielder Observatory definitely falls into that category.

If the kids are getting bored of the history and beauty then take them to Treasure Island, an indoor activity centre that features a pirate ship and climbing frames. Let them tire themselves out as you enjoy a coffee and make use of the free Wi-Fi.
