Yorkshire & North East England

In England's spectacular North East, Yorkshire and Northumberland are both counties that offer something for everyone. Yorkshire is world renowned for the beauty of its countryside and its scenery, reaching from the Dales in the west to the Moors in the east. There are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, much of which is in the care of the Trust, and some of the most magnificent historic houses in the country. The cathedral city of York, where the Trust has two holiday apartments, has a huge variety on offer to visitors - from magnificent York Minster to the medieval Shambles, an area steeped in history and now rich in gift and antique shops alongside fashionable boutiques. Northumberland too abounds in magnificent scenery with wide open stretches of moorland and a long and dramatic coastline. Steeped in history, protecting the border with Scotland since the days when Hadrian's army built the famous Wall, the county also has a wonderful collection of historic houses and castles including Cragside, Wallington and Lindisfarne, all of which are in the care of the Trust. The Trust now has cottages close to Hadrian's Wall itself and in many other spectacular locations including Alnwick and Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage Site.

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. 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.

    Cottage bigger than anticipated

    cottage was much bigger than I had anticipated and lovely and warm. Wonderful drying area in boiler room. Need small sharp knives in kitchen and lightweight plastic microwaveable dishes. Do you really need lots of baking equipment? beautiful location, but not too remote

    A fabulous property

    A fabulous property that became part of our 2007 Christmas away from it all. It was a pleasure from which to walk in the footsteps of the Romans on Hadrians Wall and an equal pleasure to return to this historic comfortable cottage with the necessities of today. The Romans would not have left if thir accommadation was as comfotable. Now looking forward to our 4th NT Cottage in May

    Lovely cottage and very peaceful

    Our first NT cottage break and definitely won't be our last. Lovely cottage and very peaceful. Loved the log burning stove, when we eventually managed to get it going! As the cottage backed onto Hadrian's Wall, we had some great walks from there. And despite the wind, we even managed to sit outside and enjoy the garden furniture, albeit wrapped up in coats, scarves, gloves and hats (it was March though). We would recommend Peel Bothy for a nice peaceful getaway. You could see the local pub from the cottage and it was only a few minutes walk down the road, so if you wanted company, a drink or to eat our, you could do so easily.
