Following on the back of the Minister for Tourism's recent visit to Northumberland it was good to read that the Sunday Times Travel Section was devoting a whole page to Northumberland [p16] as they described how "its all happening up north". The piece rightly waxed eloquent about Housesteads, Vindolanda, Hadrians Wall, Craster, Alnwick, Berwick upon Tweed and the Farne Islands, with Kielder and the Northumberland National Park also featuring. Honourable mentions were also made to the amazing Falstone Barns boutique B + B, whilst my favourite pub, the Battlesteads Inn, also features.
Come and visit these amazing places soon! We have the most beautiful County, the best people and a sense of space few can match.
