Northumberland is famous for it's historic castle and they are all within a short drive from our hotel. For the more energetic, Bamburgh Castle can be reached by walking along the white sand beach seen from our windows. Others include Lindisfarne Castle on (Holy Island), Dunstanburgh, Warkworth and not forgetting the 'Home of Harry Potter' at Alnwick. The magnificient Alnwick Gardens can also be found in the grounds of the castle and the town itself is a short drive away.
Other Small coastal villages like Alnmouth are also a treat to visit and explore and make for a great day out. The Cheviot Hills and Scottish Borders are on our doorstep all waiting to be explored using St Aidans as a base. To the north we have the border town of Berwick Upon Tweed, to the south lies the World Heritage site, Hadrian's Wall.
Bookshops, smokehouses, bike rides, National Trust & English Heritage sites aplenty, hill walking, fishing and an endless supply of beaches make up a plethora of activities and attractions that Northumberland has to offer.
