“Northumberland, wild and untamed with so much to offer from Old Roman Forts, Castles, Walking and Wildlife to long sandy beaches.
I love Northumberland because of all the variety of attractions it has, for all ages.
I have stayed many times at a property called Oak Cottage ( ref:16498 ) on Whitelee Farm.
There are 3 holiday cottages on the farm, which enjoy panoramic views over Whitelee Fell, which has been designated a National Nature Reserve.
This is a truly unique place and the owner’s Mr & Mrs Wilson have done much to protect the local wildlife, and to make the farm a “Green” place to be, energy for the cottages is provided by a small wind turbine and solar panels. The farm has been awarded the Silver award from the “Green Tourism Scheme”.
Being keen on nature and walking, I love the many fabulous walks that are available from the front door. There are so many birds to watch from the surrounding farmland and in the cottage garden.
My favourite has to be the “Wildlife cameras” which feed live images into the cottages onto the TV. I have spent many a happy evening sipping my wine watching Badgers, Foxes, Owls, as well as a plethora of smaller birds and mammals on “Owl and Fox cam”
For all those who love to explore, the cottages is only 5 minutes from the Scottish border, Hadrian’s Wall, Edinburgh, the Northumberland Coast, all approx 1 hour away and half an hour away is Alnwick Castle and Gardens, where some of the Harry Potter scenes have been filmed, a must for all children and grown up Potter fans alike, followed by dinner in the Treehouse Restaurant is a must.
I would really recommend this area for people of all ages, families and couples and pets alike, especially for those who just want to relax and have some well deserved quiet time.”
