Places in Northumberland

We have split this into the following sections

The Northumberland coast with lovely seaside villages such as Alnmouth and Craster.

The Beaches of Northumberland. Druridge bay and the beach between Bamburgh and Seahouses are covered here.

Our section on the Cheviot hills covers some of the best walking in the North East with the Schil, Red Cribs and Carey burn all having their own pages.

Glendale and Wooler covers the area between the Cheviots and the coast to the east. As well as well known places such as Belford and Alnwick we also look at special places like Ros Castle, Doddington, Bewick Old Church and Bowden doors.


Hexham and Tynedale covers the large area of land running south from the Scottish border, following the course of the North Tyne towards Chollerford and Hexham and then up into the North Pennines through the Allendale valley.


 The College Valley is one of the best kept secrets in the North East.Remote and isolated there are just over 12,000 acres owned We have more information and pages on the valley than any other website. Subjects like
