  • The beauty of Northumberland
  • Not my home but well visited as I’m from Durham. Most unspoilt county in the UK (IMO). Beautiful coastline & fantastic countryside.
    Weird accent though, especially round Rrrrothburrry & Aaalwinton!

    Plus, The Hope & Anchor in Alnmouth do the best chips ever. (or should I say ‘The Hurp & Anchor’)

    I miss it. But not the Winter with the wind coming from the East. Will always be “home” though.

    Just returned from a couple of weeks’ camping in the Northeast – just near Dunstanburgh Castle to be precise. Now, I always loved the NE, and used to spend quite a bit of time in Newcastle, but haven’t been back for almost ten years. That said, am I glad we returned.

    Bloody hell it is beautiful up there! With a castle, or some Saxon church around every bend, along with a spectacular seascape and beautiful farms, it is like the Cotswalds of the North.

    Congratulations to anyone on here that is fortunate enough to call it home!

    Thought this thread would be about Donna Air. 🙁

    the walk from Dunstanburgh along the beach and a pint at the Ship Inn is a favourite annual jaunt. We try and get a week in the area most years, superb place 🙂

    I wish folk would stop advertising the fact, it might end up getting busy at some point…

    My late grandparents lived in Humshaugh near Hexham. I loved it round there, sadly never really have cause to go there anymore. Keep thinking I’d like to do the HW walk just to go through that countryside again.

    shhhh, its supposed to be a secret, one of the things that keeps it beautiful is the fact no bugger goes there.

    I used to live in Allendale and really miss the North Pennines, some harsh cald winters but just bootiful, bootiful.

    Should the Scotts go their seperate ways I’d expect it to get a bit busier as the Castles and watch towers will need rebuilding 🙂

    What for? Surely they’ll want to stay “up there”?

    Anyway, yes, it’s a lovely neck of the woods, but Shh.

    10504.72 for me.

    I love Northumberland, it’s the one area we keep returning to. Think we were at the same site as you Saxonrider. It’s relatively unspoilt and had lots of variety – hills, sea, history, wee towns etc. magic 🙂
