Northumberland is a magical place filled with unspoilt golden sandy beaches, rolling hills, rugged moorland, sweeping views, friendly little market towns and villages, and a cultural heritage all of its own. It’s a county of contrasts, a place where unrivalled scenery has often been marked by turbulent, bloody warfare – this land has been violently fought over for more than 2,000 years. Visit Northumberland today and you’ll find beauty, peace and tranquility in almost every little corner you visit. The most sparsely populated county in England, the traffic you are most likely to encounter is of the woolly, four-legged variety!
