This was a lovely cosy well equipped cottage in a wonderful location. We had a great welcome from the owners Paul and Rena and they were amazing in keeping an eye out for me after my husband was hospitalised after an accident We would certainly look forward to spending more time at Hagg Hill Cottage.

It was a lovely little cottage. Deceptively spacious with a homely feel. Couldn't fault the cleanliness, everything you could require for a weeks holiday. Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone who was looking for a quiet peaceful break, was very impressed with the whole process. A beautiful little cottage for two people. Very peaceful seRead moretting but close to main routes around the county. The living area is deceptively spacious but very cosy. The whole cottage has a relaxing feel to it.The bedroom and en suite are very sumptuous and there are lovely pieces of glass art dotted round the cottage made by the owner. It was a complete treat. We visited numerous National Trust and English Heritage sites while we were there and the Derwent Valley is great for those who enjoy walking. A huge thank you to our hosts for making our stay so memorable. Hide

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.
