Northumberland holidays & caravan parks

As the border county with Scotland, Northumberland has been the scene of many famous battles between the English and the Scots

Northumberland is truly beautiful – the wild coastline blending with the rugged landscape giving you an instant sense of the history and legends that surround this historic county. Despite not being a traditional seaside destination, Northumberland is a favourite for adventure-seekers, explorers, and anyone looking for something that offers a bit more than your typical family holiday. It’s hardly surprising that over one million of us visit every year.

If you can’t wait to get out and stretch your legs, head for Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to the largest man-made lake in northern Europe. This stunning park has all kinds of natural wildlife, outdoor activities and events happening throughout the year.

You may also like to explore Northumberland National Park where you’ll have all the space you need to discover cycling trails, coastal flatlands and rolling hills. The park covers a quarter of the whole county and stretches south from the Scottish border. If you do pay a visit, make sure you take a detour to Hadrian’s Wall – this Roman Britain landmark dominates the surrounding area and it’s easy to imagine all of the battles that it has seen over the 2,000 years it has been standing.

For film fans, no trip to Northumberland would be complete without a trip to Alnwick Castle. Most recently taking the starring role as Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films, it has also been used in other blockbusters such as Elizabeth and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, as well as the Downton Abbey Christmas specials. With regular events and exhibitions where you can even dress up in medieval clothing, the whole family will enjoy a visit here.
