On the Map: Northumberland’s Most Unusual Places to Stay

6 December 2021

If there’s one reason to visit magical, mythical Northumberland, it’s gazing up at the stars in England’s darkest skies.

If there’s another, it’s the fact that you’ll find more castles here than in any other English county. And since most are dotted along the scenic coast, there’s plenty of scope for epic Insta-moments.

There’s a lot more we could say about Northumberland – it has not one, but two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, for starters! – but we think it’s only right that you discover this amazing part of the world for yourself.

Start right now, by browsing our hand-picked selection of unique Northumberland retreats.
