If you wish to discover a landscape of limitless beauty and a welcome that is warm and genuine then Northumberland National Park, the land of the far horizons, will provide an experience you will not want to forget. From exploring the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall in the south to striding through the grandeur of the Cheviot Hills in the north, there is so much to do. Through its heart run the majestic rivers of the North Tyne, Rede and Coquet where otters play, salmon leap and fishermen dream. This is also a rugged borderland, where its violent Reiver past challenges you in the form of castles and fortified farms (Bastles), which pepper this historic landscape.
