Located on the tranquil Percy Woods Country Park, Hillside View Lodge is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Northumberland Coast and Countryside. Situated a couple of miles from the main A1 road through Northumberland, the Lodge is half way between the towns of Morpeth and Alnwick. Both are historic, individual Market Towns with independent shops, great restaurants and bars and their own attractions, such as Morpeth's Carlisle Park and Sanderson Arcade. Alnwick has the infamous Alnwick Castle, used to film parts of Harry Potter, Alnwick Gardens and Barter Books.

Northumberland has some of the best beaches in the UK, more than 30 miles of mostly wide, sandy beaches, with hidden coves and a wealth of rock pools to explore. Dogs are permitted on nearly all beaches throughout the year.

And of course the thing that sets Northumberland apart from other UK Counties - Castles! Over 70 Castles / Castle sites to visit from Warkworth to Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh to Berwick, from ruins to fully functional with visitor centres, there's a Castle here for you!

A boat trip to the Farne Islands is a trip you won't forget, seeing the UK's largest grey seal colony, as well a a wide variety of seabirds. Another great place to go bird watching is the national nature reserve on Holy Island, or the hides at Druridge Bay, Low Hauxley and Craster.

Check the tide times for a safe crossing over to Holy Island and explore the Priory, the Castle, beach and rock pools and the village itself - don't forget to take a sample of the world famous Lindisfarne Mead home with you.

Some of the larger coastal towns are great places to get active - Beadnell, Seahouses and Amble all host water sport activities, or venture inland to Keilder Water for a host of watersports, cycling trails and walking routes.

Also inland there are Roman forts and archeological sites galore, walk alongside the world famous Roman Wall, visit the tranquil towns or Corbridge and Hexham - Hexham Racecourse is one of the most beautiful courses in the UK if horse racing is your passion
