Explore history and natural beauty with Northumberland vacation rentals
Northumberland is England’s northernmost county and one of the country’s most unique destinations. This sparse area is home to vast swathes of unspoilt scenery, making it an excellent option for holidaymakers seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and enjoy a more tranquil routine instead. From Northumberland National Park to Alnwick Castle and the stunning coastline, those who book Northumberland vacation rentals can look forward to plenty of history and natural beauty during their stay.
Getting to Northumberland
Northumberland is a largely rural area consisting of towns and villages, so there are no airports within the county itself. However, Newcastle Airport is located just a short drive away and Northumberland is within easy reach from there. Though it is possible to get to the county via public transport, visitors with Northumberland vacation rentals will probably find it more convenient to rent their own vehicle. The area is largely rural and it will be difficult to reach a lot of the attractions without a set of wheels.
Weather in Northumberland
Northumberland has slightly better weather than other parts of the UK. Summer days tend to be a little warmer and it’s also drier throughout the year, receiving less rainfall than the UK average. That said, Northumberland isn’t somewhere you visit primarily for the weather. Winters can be very cold, while the roughly 150 days of rain are spread over the whole year. This means that even in the summer it's not unlikely to run into some rain. The weather is unpredictable, so it’s best to make sure your Northumberland vacation homes are well stocked with waterproof clothing.
Northumberland’s great attractions
Northumberland is a county full of history. Start your trip with a visit to Hadrian’s Wall, a World Heritage Site that was built in the 2nd century A.D. by the Romans. Drive to the wall just to get a close-up look at it, or amble along the adjacent footpath and make an afternoon of it. However you choose to experience the wall, it's worthwhile spending some time at a spot that has been the center of so many political and military scuffles throughout Britain’s long history.
The stunning Alnwick Castle has been a Northumberland fixture since 1309, and is one of the largest and best-preserved castles in the country. It has been used as a filming location for many films and television shows over the years, including Downton Abbey, two Robin Hood films and the first two Harry Potter instalments. Visit the magnificent state rooms or roam the extensive grounds and you’ll be walking through history.
You’ll no doubt be spending a lot of time in the Northumberland National Park during your stay at Northumberland vacation rentals. This large area offers great opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding and birdwatching. There are also many markets that take place each month in the National Park. Here you can buy high-quality, locally produced cheeses, jam and meat products, among other things. At night, head to the park and look towards the stars – the area is Europe’s largest Dark Sky Park and you’ll see many hundreds of thousands of twinkling stars on a clear night.
Northumberland vacation homes with children
Your children will love their stay at Northumberland vacation rentals. The wide open spaces, plethora of sights and sheer uniqueness of this destination will be sure to stir their imaginations. They’ll love the gruesome history of Alnwick Castle, which is as much fun for children as it is for adults.
Experience local life at Chillingham Wild Cattle, where visitors are offered the chance to walk among the animals in their natural environment. Kids will love the animals and also enjoy being out in the beautiful countryside. This is a primitive experience that will connect kids to nature during their trip.
At Kielder Observatory, you can let your little ones fulfil their dream of becoming space explorers. They can take a look through the telescope and also attend one of the fascinating daily events. Experiences that are both fun and educational are not always easy to come by, but the Kielder Observatory definitely falls into that category.
If the kids are getting bored of the history and beauty then take them to Treasure Island, an indoor activity center that features a pirate ship and climbing frames. Let them tire themselves out as you enjoy a coffee and make use of the free Wi-Fi.
