If you're organising a walking holiday or a birthday event for the extended family, this gorgeous period house is the perfect springboard for discovering the joys of Northumberland as well as the hilly Scottish Borders.

Beautiful farmhouse. A lot of care has been taken over the details and we thought the theme with the furniture and soft furnishing complimented the building well. We felt that we had loads of space (7 adults - well, nearly. My nephew is 16 and 6ft 5 inches tall! He did bang his head on door frames a number of times). Good base for exploring but youRead more definitely need your own transport. . Hide

An off-road property, with views of a the Catcleugh Reservoir, surrounded by farmed woodlands. With an Aga as the hearth of the house, expect a cosy and warm environment, perfect for chilling and relaxing when a much-needed recharging of human batteries is required.

Beautiful house with lots of room for everyone enabling a great family holiday. Well equipped, the Aga was a bit daunting but was actually easy to use. The dogs loved it. Spent evenings around the wood burning fire. Kielder park is close by with lots of good walks. Owners are delightful.

Lovely location, beautiful cottage filled with finishing touches that made it even more special. The kitchen Aga that initially seemed to be quite terrifying was loved by all. The dogs loved the heat and cooking on it was actually really easy. Bedrooms were great. Space for all the family in the wide selection of rooms.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
