Here are some websites that you may find of interest or that might assist you in planning your self-catering cottage holiday in Northumberland.
Hexham Golf Club, Northumberland
A traditional parkland course on fast draining land on the south side of the River Tyne, Hexham Golf Club is a tough enough test of golf to regularly host county events, yet it is enjoyable for club golfers of all standards. The greens are regularly amongst the best in the Northumberland, and the views over the confluence of the North and South Tyne and surrounding countryside are stunning.
One of the most scenic, and the highest (at 800 ft) racecourse in the country. A great day out.
According to the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE), the star-studded skies above Kielder Water & Forest Park are the darkest in England. At nearly 580 sq miles, our dark sky zone, known as Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, is the largest area of protected night sky in Europe. It is the first of its kind in England and one of the largest in the world, joining the likes of Death Valley and Big Bend Dark Sky Parks in the USA
