Easter Breaks in Northumberland

Easter is one of the most beautiful times of year, especially in rural Britain, where lush greenery and vibrant flora floods the countryside - so it’s no surprise that the Easter break is such a popular time for UK staycations with family, friends and loved ones.

When it comes to holidaying in the Great British countryside, there are few more picturesque locations than the county of Northumberland - and at Cottages in Northumberland, we love helping holiday-goers find their ultimate rural retreat in the heart of this beautiful region.

Sensational springtime scenery

If you’re a nature lover, Easter breaks in Northumberland offer an ideal opportunity to see this breathtaking English county in full bloom. From the extraordinary Alnwick Garden to stargazing hotspot Kielder Forest, natural beauty can be found around every corner - and Northumberland Easter breaks make it easy to experience the area at its very best.

Take a hike and explore the rolling Cheviot Hills, which straddle the Anglo-Scottish border, or wander through the magnificent wooded valley known as Hareshaw Linn en route to its very own waterfall. Alternatively, if you love nothing more than breathing in the crisp sea air, the Northumberland Coast is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and promises panoramic coastal views as well as miles upon miles of unspoilt coastline. Thanks to Northumberland’s abundance of natural delights, even short Easter breaks in the region are sure to leave you feeling totally refreshed and rejuvenated.
