Northumberland: A Sparsely Populated but Exciting Destination in Northern England
Northumberland is the northern-most county in England. It's more secluded than many other destinations in the United Kingdom, and there are only 62 people per square kilometre. Northumberland's historic attractions, festivals and delicious foods are just some of the things that make it have a healthy tourism industry that includes many hotels. Some of the area's local traditions are unlike those found elsewhere. One of them, the rapper sword dance, is a type of clog-step jig that was initially popular within mining communities when hard-working miners needed breaks from unearthing coal.
Visit the Unspoilt North Pennines
Characterised by gorgeous waterfalls and spacious, bluish-green moors, the North Pennines area has been officially designated as an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty” within England. As you might expect from that description, it's a great place for enjoying wildlife. In particular, over 80 percent of the country's black grouse population lives there. Besides watching for birds, spend time at the Derwent Reservoir. It's a boundary that spans over 400 hectares between Northumberland and Northern Durham, and a well-known habitat for trout that weigh up to 20 pounds. During your time in the North Pennines district, stop at Allendale, a quaint village of less than a few thousand residents that has been recognised for its high quality of life and active local economy. There are several pubs to check out, characterised by distinctive beverages and warm hospitality. Some of them may even serve locally produced beers, such as those from the Allendale Brewery. Be sure to enjoy at least one before going back your hotel.
Check Out Picturesque Points of Interest
Northumberland is full of historic places that have fascinating stories to tell. One of them is Bamburgh Castle. It's one of the oldest still-inhabited structures of its kind. Located 45 metres above sea level, the castle rests on a base of volcanic stone. During the Victorian era, an industrialist named William Armstrong purchased it, and the castle remains in his family. This rugged castle is popular with tourists who come to see things like the castle keep. It's the oldest part of the attraction, and construction began in 1164. The library and medieval kitchen are also worth admiring. You might also go to Cragside House, which was once the home of an engineer named Lord Armstrong who was known for his innovation in landscaping and gardening. Featuring elegant Victorian architecture, his home was built in 1863 and became the first in the world to be run with hydroelectric power. While exploring the Cragside grounds, breathe in fresh air while meandering through extensive walking paths for various ability levels.
Take Part in a Northumberland Festival
Northumberland's visitors often come to enjoy some of its many festivals. You might choose to book tickets for the Lindisfarne Festival, which celebrates the area's music and culture scene for several days in late August or early September. Taking place opposite Holy Island, this exciting event gives visitors opportunities to see talented singers and bands, via a line-up that emphasises the indie and underground scene. A notable thing about this festival is it allows camping for the duration for the event. With that in mind, many attendees temporarily pitch tents and remain on the grounds rather than staying in their hotels. You could also tantalise your taste buds by going to the Berwick Food and Beer Festival. With a focus on local producers, this festival offers plenty to eat, courtesy of dozens of stalls showcasing everything from artisan cheese to savoury sausages. Normally occurring in early autumn, the Northumberland festival also has cookery demonstrations, food-related film screenings, and an animal farm.
Delight Your Kids in Northumberland
Even the pickiest kids find lots to love about Northumberland. Encourage little ones to get rid of excess energy by spending time at the Kielder Water and Forest Park. In addition to the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe, the park features England's largest working forest, which spans over 250 square miles. This attraction is also known for excellent stargazing opportunities, so you may let the kids stay up past their bedtimes to try and spot well-known constellations on clear nights. Also, plan a day away from your hotel courtesy of an excursion to Beadnell Bay. It offers a crescent-shaped beach filled with soft sand that's excellent for building impromptu castles or playing lawn games. Interestingly, Beadnell Bay has the England's only west-facing harbour on the East Coast. Many dedicated fishermen frequent it hoping to get lucky and catch wild salmon. After enjoying a relaxing day at the beach, head to the nearby village for dinner. Besides local seafood, cuisine choices range from pizza to steak.
