Yorkshire and the North East

From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, to the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, a stay in one of our cottages will give you the chance to explore the rugged landscape and green hills of Yorkshire and the North East. As if that wasn’t enough, there are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, (much of which we look after) 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. 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.

    Lovely place to stay

    The Bothy was a lovely place to stay, with easy access to the rest of Northumberland. Lots of National Trust places to visit and great walks for the Dog to enjoy. The only thing we both would have liked would have been a nice bench to sit on outside the front door to look at the amazing view while having a cup of coffee. We both spent many hours sat on the wall doing just this. Apart from that the place was fantastic. You know when you have had a great Holiday when you don't want to leave and when it came to going home we both didn't want to leave.

    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
