Holy Island of Lindisfarne: Do remember that Holy Island is tidal and the tides cannot be beaten - even with a 4 x 4. To be safe please check the safe daily crossing times before you set off.

Berwick on Tweed area: L S Lowry Trail, The Hayloft Gallery at Paxton House. It contains the pre-eminent Scottish collection of Chippendale furniture and acts as an outstation of the National Galleries of Scotland.

The Northumberland coastline has more than its fair share of amazing castles: Bamburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle and Dunstanburgh Castle. These are within easy reach of Corbett Cottage. These three are all on the Heritage Coastal Route. Lindisfarne Priory is also a must see.

Farne Island boat trips offer the opportunity to visit a fascinating site. As well as being the most famous sea bird sanctuary in the UK, there is also a large colony of grey seals.

Alnwick: Barter Books one of the largest second hand book shops in Britain, also Alnwick Castle and Gardens  

Chillingham Castle is the home of Sir Humphrey Wakefield Bart and is also close to the famous wild white cattle of Chillingham.
