If the weather is good, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and head outside to the local natural destinations. Pack sunscreen and a hat and some equipment and spend some time on the water at Crag Lough in Hexham.
Holiday makers visiting Northumberland should not miss out on Vindolanda in Hexham, Hexham Abbey and Old Gaol.

Enjoy a few post-match beers with local sports fanatics after the game in a nearby pub.
For a real taste of this fascinating part of the world, think about making a reservation at one of the area’s hotel or serviced apartment options.
