Holiday at a World Heritage Site 

We could be biased but we love Northumberland. With its rolling green hills, stunning scenery (if we do say so ourselves) and some truly brilliant places to visit. To help, there's three self catering holiday cottages situated alongside the iconic World Heritage Site, Hadrian’s Wall. It's the perfect place for a getaway and to admire the stars - especially as they're the darkest skies in England.
