Many people enjoy making a visit to Newcastle, as the area is famed for its nightlife and fantastic shopping areas. Newcastle has its fair share of country parks and seaside locations, but these are just a taster compared to many villages nearby.
Offering beautiful scenery mere miles away from Newcastle, Northumberland is a perfect retreat for those wishing to holiday in an area that offers excellent relaxation, recreation and leisure opportunities, whilst still being within easy reach of Newcastle and its nightlife. What could be better than spending the day shopping in Newcastle City Centre, then returning to a Tidal Holidays luxury cottage to survey your purchases in the serenity of the Northumberland coast? Or enjoying a sun filled fun filled day on the beautiful beach at Seahouses before getting into your glad rags and partying the night away on Newcastle’s Quayside?
Home to more Castles than any other county, Northumberland offers an array of visiting opportunities for those who enjoy learning about history. Alnwick Castle, famed for its use in the Harry Potter films, is within easy reach of many of the Tidal Holidays properties. With a wealth of Museums and Art Galleries, you will be sure to find plenty to do on your holiday.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, Northumberland has a varied landscape offering all kinds of pursuits to be enjoyed. Perhaps a trip to Kielder Water and Forest would satisfy the whole family, with its range of activities spanning from Horse Riding in the beautiful woodland, Mountain Biking along the various terrain trails, getting wet and wild by trying out the Canoeing, Sailing or Water Skiing that the lake is famously used for, or even just having a stroll around and taking in the views on foot. With Tidal Holidays properties being located within easy reach, you know you can save your energy for the fun bits!
And whilst our beautiful North East is no Costa Del Sol, we do enjoy several sun drenched months, which can be enjoyed on our beautiful clean beaches.
The beaches tend to be a lot quieter than those in the south, and many have fantastic views of historical places of interest, such as Lindisfarne Beach with its views of the Medieval Priory, and can only be reached by a causeway, or Bamburgh Beach that is overlooked by the massive, majestic Bamburgh Castle. Tidal Holidays are only minutes away from this beautiful scenery, just pack your towel and sun cream ready for a day of fun and excitement at the beach, before returning home in minutes for a relaxing evening!
So if you are looking for a really relaxing holiday in a place that can truly offer the best of both worlds, you should take a look at Tidal Holidays range of cottages. Perfectly placed, perfectly priced, they offer all the comforts of home for a holiday your whole family will love.
