Yorkshire and the North East

From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, the magnificent coastline (much of which we care for) and Northumberland National Park to the north a holiday with us will give you the chance to explore some or all of this fascinating area. As if that wasn’t enough, there are also historic towns and cities and stories after stories in the historic houses we care for.

Long ago, Northumbria was a land at the very edge of a great empire. And even today, the wind sweeping across the hills still seems to carry the distant sounds of Roman legions marching along Hadrian's Wall. From the wild and natural beauty of the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park in the north, magnificent castles and coastline to the east and Hadrian's Wall Country to the west, the scenery is as unspoilt as it was in those far-off times: it will certainly appeal to those wanting to discover high and lonely places and untouched beaches. The National Trust owns a range of historic buildings in the area including Lindisfarne Castle, Wallington, Cragside and the shore- based Souter lighthouse. As if that wasn't enough, there are also historic towns and cities

    Comfortable cottage

    The cottage was uniquely situated and extremely comfortable. We were able to explore the surrounding area on foot straight from the cottage, without getting into the car. Great R&R.

    Homely cottage

    Our week was a mixture between days out and staying at home. The cottage felt like a home and even on wet days we had an enjoyable time. This was our third visit to the cottage and we have already booked in for April 2017.

    Great location

    Made enjoyable by its great location. The proximity to a very popular visitor attraction did not spoil the feel of the remote location and added a day of recreation on the doorstep. A good starting point for a number of locations, such a Kielder Forest, North Pennines and even the north Lake District (we went to Keswick for the day).

    Great location

    The location was great. Even with visitors around, the place was quiet, so even quieter when they had all gone!! The views were inspiring and the amount of walks to be done in the area great! We very much enjoyed our holiday. It went too fast!
