Have you discovered the secrets of Northumberland?  Rolling hills to endless beaches ... Fairytale castles to dazzling dark skies.

When travelling to places old and new you collect experiences, and a visit to Northumberland is no different.  It rewards you with a diverse and intriguing selection of both culture, history, countryside and quaint villages.  From a day’s adventure to a weeks exploring, whatever time you have spare, prepare to discover how much Northumberland has to offer.  

And the biggest secret of all?  The amazing places you can stay ... Two Northumberland businesses were awarded Gold as winners of their categories at the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2014 ceremony. Both winners, St Cuthbert’s House and Seafield Park, are from the seaside town of Seahouses, making it the new must-visit destination in England. 

Also recognised in the awards was Leaplish Waterside Park at Kielder, who received the Bronze award in the Holiday Village of the Year category.

Visitors to Northumberland are spoiled for choice when it comes to quality accommodation, with Northumberland businesses scooping 16 awards at the North East England Tourism Awards.

Gold winners
·    Seafield Caravan Park – Holiday Park of the Year
·    Kielder Winter Wonderland – Tourism Event of the Year
·    Matfen Hall – Large Hotel of the Year
·    Langley Castle Hotel – Small Hotel of the Year
·    Springhill Farm – Self Catering Provider of the Year

On top of this success, the county achieved Silver in the ‘Best UK Holiday Destination’ category in their debut at the British Travel awards held on 26th November 2014 at Battersea Evolution in London.  It was a record-breaking year for the British Travel Awards.  With more than 1.25 million public votes cast, it is the UK's biggest consumer-voted programme, showing that the awards really are the consumer choice.
