Tips from a local
On Wednesday’s and Sunday’s you can tip the ferryman to take you over the River Coquet to discover an ancient, hidden Hermitage, carved from a rock face and home to a hermit with a fascinating yet tragic past. Find out more about the history of The Hermitage here.
Tips from a local
Warkworth Castle is such a well-preserved and truly impressive Norman castle that a stay in the area isn’t complete without exploring this amazing place. Even if you wouldn’t normally, take up the audio tour, it really brings the castle to life! Great for all ages, even the little ones as it’s great for them to run around the grassy grounds with a pretend sword in hand!
Julie and Mark Ringland
We asked Julie and Mark about the history of Hotspur Cottage and how they came to letting it out as a holiday home:
“Hotspur Cottage was my father’s home, so it holds many memories for us. My father chose to live there because of its fantastic location in the prettiest village in all of Northumberland and loved being so close to both the countryside and its abundance of nature, but also close to the sea, as he sailed.
Today, it makes the perfect luxury bolthole for a couple looking to enjoy village life as well as being in a great spot for exploring further afield. The walks along the riverside are just magical, and the beach is just the perfect place for blowing away those cobwebs and seeing just what really matters in life!”
