Countryside

If you need to get away from it all, come to Northumberland's countryside.

Northumberland was recently named by the Campaign for Rural England as the country's most tranquil spot and if you spend any time here you'll begin to realise why.

We have a network of isolated villages and towns, connected by winding B-roads that cross some stunning countryside.

We know that our visitors appreciate the chance to take stock, relax or get active in the heart of some fantastic scenery. Northumberland is England's big sky county - a place where you can walk for miles and not see another soul.

We've got not one but two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and our own Northumberland National Park which offers some fantastic examples of rare and endangered species.
