Northumberland Experience - Coast, Castles & Gardens

The good life in a wonderful green corner of England, north of The Wall

Up here the air is clear and fresh, the clouds scurry by and the sun’s rays dapple the endless deserted sandy beaches. This is the place to blow the cobwebs away.

 

We will include walks taking in rugged coastal paths, golden sands and the dramatic ancient castles of Lindisfarne and Chillingham. Inland there are remarkable gardens at Alnwick Castle and Cragside.

 

There is also the wilderness of the Cheviots and the Northumberland National Park to discover, with a taster taking in some of the best of St Cuthbert’s Way. This cross-border route links the two landmarks perhaps most associated with the iconic religious figure, Melrose Abbey in the Scottish borders and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The region is staggeringly beautiful and is excitingly varied from the rugged terrain of the Cheviot Hills to the wide sandy beaches of the Northumberland coast.

 

This holiday incorporates a good mixture of varied walking together with sightseeing each day. Your programme will include a visit to Chillingham Castle, an ancient fortress where you will see active restoration of complex masonry, metalwork and ornamental plaster as the restoration continues. There are parklands, gardens and castles to see. You will also visit the National Trust property of Cragside and enjoy the magnificent Victorian house, gardens and woodland.
