How close are the local attractions?

26 Feb 2018

Northumberland’s key sightseeing destinations are only a short drive from our luxury holiday cottages. 

Cheviot Holiday Cottages are located in the tranquil Breamish Valley on the edge of the Cheviot Hills & Northumberland National Park.

To give you a better example of just how central our holiday cottages are, we have created a map showing Northumberland’s highlights and their distance from the cottages.

Northumberland is scattered with an amazing array of castles, ruins, historic houses and their gardens. We have selected just a few highlights to start you off on your adventures.



Lindisfarne Castle, Holy Island

The 28-mile drive is all worth it once you cross those sands, freshly reappearing with the causeway, and you discover this beautiful island and its historic past.

Bamburgh Castle

Alnwick Castle

Possibly one of the most famous castles in the north of England, this castle offers a great day out for film and historian buffs alike. Fly on broomsticks and walk through the famous filming locations of films like Harry Potter and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Only 25 minutes’ drive from the cottages, stands a Victorian house that was way ahead of its time with 1,000 acres to explore.

Kielder Observatory

Check out their website for event dates, as you will need to book in advance. This public astronomical observatory is second to none and the ideal place for some stargazing.

Not technically in Northumberland (just) but only an hour away, is the bustling city of Newcastle. There you will find shops, restaurants, museums and much more.
