Situated in the northern part of the county close to the Scottish border, Wooler is an excellent base for a holiday or exploring the surrounding countryside. Why not take a look at the extensive range of Self Catering in Wooler? The foothills with their quiet back roads and bridleways are ideal for many activities, including cycling, horse riding, fishing and rock climbing.

To the east is the magnificent coastline of Northumberland, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coast offers spectacular scenery from Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to Seahouses and the birdwatcher’s paradise The Farne Islands.

Close by is also Chillingham Castle, rumoured to be one of the most haunted castles in Britain, and the fascinating Chillingham Cattle. To the north, explore Ford & Etal Estates or the magnificent Flodden Battlefield.
