Northumberland has some of the most spectacular unspoiled coastline and coastal accommodation in the UK. It was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) all the way back in 1958 and covers 39 miles of stunning sandy beaches, coves and rocky outcrops! The Northumberland Coastal Route provides access to the many towns and villages along this magnificent stretch. Much of the area is unpopulated with mile after mile of clean and safe award-winning golden sandy beaches, quiet country lanes and an unequalled sense of freedom. For the lovers of wildlife there is the majestic Holy Island, the now famous Farne Islands, Coquet Island, Budle Bay... the list goes on.
