Pull on your coat – it’s time to get outdoors and explore one of the most spectacular counties in England. Known for its ethereal, medieval beauty, magnificent coastline, countless castles, and classic outdoor wear (Barbour we’re looking at you) – stopping over at one of the many pubs with rooms in Northumberland is special indeed.
This northernmost county in England, bordering Scotland, is a mystical place of legends, ghostly ruins, wide-open spaces, and an incredible coastline. Yes, the beaches are vast, beautiful and unbelievably, sparsely populated. Taking your four-legged friend? Check out the dog friendly pubs in Northumberland – the beaches welcome dogs and let’s face it, what better place to exercise them. Boasting more than 30 miles of coastline, you can choose from Bamburgh in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the historic fishing village of Seahouses, Berwick-upon-Tweed or even the breathtaking Holy Island of Lindisfarne – an ancient tidal island.
And the historic houses and castles are just as alluring. With more castles than any other county in England, from Alnwick – location for Hogwarts – to the dramatic Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Lindasfarne, Berwick and Grace Darling – you’ve only just scratched the surface. Or, visit Beltingham – estate village of the Bowes-Lyon family, the imposing Belsay Hall or Wallington Hall with its famous climbing trees for kids – there are so many reasons to stay at country pub accommodation in Northumberland.
