Walking in Northumberland

Northumberland is regarded by many as one of the greatest places to walk in the UK. Even the Country Walking Magazine described it as “the best to place to walk in the country.”

There’s literally so much see, explore and discover from coastal footpaths and quiet country lanes to long distance walks along Hadrian’s Wall! The National Park in Northumberland is perfect for walking and has plenty of trails that are family friendly as well as others that are more challenging moorland and long distance walks.

Top places to visit on your walking holiday to Northumberland include the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail and the Berwick Lowry Trail. The Hadrian’s Wall trails is a 84 mile long distance walk so why not stop of at pubs and inns along the way?

Pubs are a great alternative to hotels and traditional B&Bs as they offer those on walking holidays not just great accommodation but fantastic food and drink and a warm and lively atmosphere. Rooms are fitted with all the mod cons such as flat screen TVs, Freeview and tea and coffee making facilities as well as comfortable beds and modern en-suite bathrooms.

After a great day out exploring the incredible landscapes on offer in Northumberland, walkers can relax in the comfort of the pub, eat some of the finest food in the region and chat to locals and travellers alike.
