The Voyage Privé travel expert’s opinion on Northumberland cottages

Northumberland offers a wealth of outdoor pursuits, all just moments from your cottage door. Top sites include a rugged coastline with historic castles and ruins, including the iconic Lindisfarne. Long pillaged by Vikings and protected by Normans, the coast is littered with both architectural and scenic landmarks. Inland, you’ll find the breathtaking Northumberland National Park, England's least populated protected landscape. From Hadrian's Wall to the forests of Kielder, it’s a natural region rich in history and tradition. Enjoy the best of Northumberland and venture to equally spectacular regions like the nearby Lake District and Scottish Borders. With a cottage or country hotel stay, you can return from a day of exploring for a relaxing cocktail or take a dip in a scenic pool.
