"Truly Inspirational!"
Our Northumberland

Our Northumberland

This dramatic county has inspired us to protect our natural heritage. It’s a wonderful area to explore!

Hunting Hall is only 5 miles from the causeway of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Here you can discover the land of St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert. In the stillness of an evening the voices of seals resting on sand banks, drift across the water to the island.

The causeway is the perfect place to paddle with lots of tide-washed pools and squidgy mud-sand, so remember to bring your wellies! A boat trip from Seahouses to the Farne Islands to see seals, puffins and nesting birds is always a great adventure.

Discover the freedom of a hike through the breathtaking wild Cheviot Hills or along this stunningly beautiful sandy coast, dramatically protected by great castles of the past. Our family particularly enjoy walking on Bamburgh beach in the moonlight with the wonderful illuminated castle as an magical backdrop. Northumberland has bustling market towns, picturesque villages, lots of castles, stately homes and museums.

Hunting Hall is 2 miles from the St. Cuthbert’s Way and National Cycle Network Route 1, so it’s a perfect base for walkers and cyclists. Why not look at our Car Free Days suggestions.

The teenagers of the environmental youth group, the Northumberland Eco Wild Team, are very proud of their county. The NEWTs invited friends and relatives to write about their favourite Northumbrian haunts - we hope you’ll be inspired by their descriptions.
