Self Catering: Northumberland Spring Breaks

Posted 27 Apr 17, written by Amanda Lambert

From the luscious greenery to days that stretch into evening, there are so many reasons to love the springtime after a bitter winter - meaning there’s never been a better time to celebrate all that the season has to offer.

You can’t put a price on spending quality time with your loved ones, and whether it’s a short break or week-long holiday, encouraging the whole family to get up close and personal with nature is guaranteed to create long-lasting memories like no other. That’s why today, we’re escaping the city, as we bring you our springtime guide to organising a unique North East getaway.

Finding the fresh air

The most sparsely populated county in England, Northumberland is best known for its largely untouched landscape - making it a top choice for a getaway that’s all about embracing natural beauty in the spring. From hiking in the hills to enjoying the fresh sea air, a remote spring break in Northumberland offers no shortage of space to enjoy a much needed detox from the city - so you can return from your retreat feeling utterly refreshed.

Enjoying locally sourced delicacies

From fresh fish caught off the coast at the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to a traditional ham and pease pudding stottie, sampling local culinary delights doesn’t get much better than in the North East. From the larger market towns to Northumberland’s array of quaint countryside and coastal villages, shop owners and restaurant chefs alike are dedicated to offering the highest quality, locally-sourced produce - which means you can get a taste of the area during your springtime break.
Sit back and take in the sunset with a glass of wine in your home-from-home, or why not show your support for independent craft brewers by exploring CAMRA’s Tyneside and Northumberland breweries? Whatever your choice of tipple, you’ll be guaranteed the perfect view to accompany your evening.

Action-packed adventures: things to do in Northumberland

As the days get longer and warmer, heading out into the great outdoors to explore this secluded corner of the UK is an experience not to be missed. Northumberland’s beautiful meadows are a must-visit during the springtime, so make sure you take in the technicolour of wildflowers at Newton Point this season.
From stepping back in time as you hike along the remains of Hadrian’s Wall to clambering across the rocky coastline, Northumberland is a walker’s paradise - and the region’s relatively mild springtime weather means you can enjoy the flora and fauna in all its glory.
An ultimate holiday hotspot for adrenaline-junkies, Northumberland is also the perfect spot for anyone looking for unique thrills and adventure-filled experiences. From cliff jumping and coasteering on Bamburgh’s coast to scuba diving close to a genuine Somali shipwreck, there’s an endless list of weird and wonderful activities to try out in this exciting region. Alternatively, if you’re hoping to get a closer look at the local wildlife, why not head to Hexham’s falconry centre and meet the area’s best known birds of prey?
