Places to stay in Northumberland

Planning a visit to Northumberland? You’ve made a good choice as Northumberland is where centuries of rich history meet a buzzing, modern metropolis, there is also a great range of hotels.

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!

We all know that a place to freshen up, relax or rest your head after a long day of city wandering is absolutely essential on any break. And your budget will determine your hotel choices, with top-end luxury on offer as well as fairly-priced options.
