Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty


Belford is a quiet village only five miles from some of the most beautiful coastline in Northumberland. The locality has something for everyone, from rambling, rock climbing, cycling, fishing or golf to a wealth of local historical treasures

Bamburgh  Castle
Bamburgh Castle

Described as the finest castle in England, it stands on a rocky outcrop overlooking miles of beautiful sandy beaches. Restoration of the castle was started in the 1890's by the first Lord Armstrong and the castle is still today the home of the Armstrong family.

Alnwick Castle and Garden
Alnwick Castle

The family home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. The castle is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Alnwick, "a town full of charm - voted the best place to live in Britain". It has been a family home since 1309. The beautiful Alnwick Garden was created by the Duchess of Northumberland. The Grand Cascade is a 'must see' and is set within the walled garden .

Holy Island
Holy Island

Visitors can only reach the island at 'low tide' by the causeway that links Holy Island with the mainland. It is very important to check safe crossing times, and a copy of the tide times is available for information, at the guest house. Places to visit on the island include Lindisfarne Castle, Lindisfarne Heritage Centre and Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve.

The Farne Islands
Seals on the Farnes

There are daily boat trips from Seahouses to the Farne Islands, which are owned by the National Trust. The islands are one of the major breeding sanctuaries for migratory sea birds and around the coasts can be found the largest colonies of Atlantic Grey seals in the UK.


The only town in Britain to be completely encircled by Elizabethan Walls".
From the walls there are wonderful views of the town, the River Tweed (famous for Salmon fishing) and the Tweed estuary. The Borough museum and art gallery and Berwick Barracks are well worth a visit.

Ford and Etal
Ford Castle

The Ford and Etal estates lie in the valley of the River Till. Attractions around the estates include Ford Castle, Lady Waterford Gallery, Etal Castle and Heatherslaw Mill - a restored and working corn mill where there is also a 15" gauge steam railway running along the banks of the River Till to Etal.
