AROUND MOSS HALL
Situated in the heart of North Northumberland, between the magnificent Cheviot range of hills in Northumberland National Park, the beautiful golden beaches of the Northumberland coastline, Moss Hall is a rural but well connected bed and breakfast.
The area surrounding Moss Hall is perfect for walkers, mountain bikers, lovers of water or those simply passing through or stopping to enjoy the sights of Northumberland.
For many years Northumberland was a county regularly fought over - from Kings of England and Scotland fighting at the nearby Flodden site, to the marauding Border Reivers .
As such, the county is full of fortified settlements and magnificent castles, such as the beach-side Bamburgh Castle ( Seen in countless films) or the grand Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and where scenes of Harry Potter were filmed. Of course we can't forget Lindisfarne Castle and Priory as well - only 5 miles away.
BERWICK UPON TWEED
This walled , Elizabethan town is a 10 minute drive from Moss Hall. The walk around the ramparts offers clear views down the Northumberland coast on bright days, and the town is full of independent retailers where you can search for unique produce. The town is part of the East Coast mainline, so should a day trip to Newcastle or Edinburgh be in mind, this is easily arranged.
THE FARNE ISLANDS
Scattered a couple of miles off the coast near Seahouses, this cluster of islands was declared by broadcaster Sir David Attenborough as his favourite place in the UK to see nature at its best. The Farne Islands have also featured in ITV's Robson Green's 2013 series "Tales from Northumberland".
During summertime around 150,000 breeding pairs of seabirds cram onto the islands. Around 23 different varieties of birds can be spotted here, including razorbills, guillemots, eider ducks and colourful puffins are just some of the varieties that flock here.
Be it walking, hiking, mountain biking or kayaking in the North Sea, Northumberland offers a veritable playground.
The Cheviot hills offer countless walks and form part of the Pennine way - the views can be spectacular and the hills offer one of the last true wildernesses in England.
Mountainbiking is a growing activity and places like Wooler Common and Thrunton Woods are a popular destination .
For lovers of water, the North Sea hosts some well known surf spots at Bamburgh and Kayaks are regularaly seen venturing round the inner Farne Islands.
