Out and About
The diversity of attractions that Northumberland has to offer is unlike any other county in Britain.
The historic village of Bamburgh and The Lord Crewe Hotel are situated directly opposite the whinsill crag, upon which sits the world renowned Bamburgh Castle, arguably one of Britain's finest castles and the ancient seat of the rulers of the Kingdom of Northumbria.
A coastal village with a beautiful 3 mile stretch of white sand beach, looking out towards the National Trust controlled Farne Islands, Bamburgh, with its golf club, ancient church and RNLI Grace Darling Museum (opened in memory of the local 19th century shipwreck heroine), is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Located in North Northumberland, Bamburgh, a popular summer holiday village, is increasingly becoming more popular year round for those wishing to escape for a few days from the increasing pace and madness of modern day living.
The most northerly and least densely populated county in England, and many people's favourite, Northumberland has a deep border history dating back to Roman times. Home to the UNESCO World Heritage site Hadrian's Wall (constructed in AD 122 by the Roman Emperor Hadrian) it stretches across the country from Wallsend in the east to Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast.
The Cheviot Hills mark the border with Scotland and are hugely popular with walkers who wish to explore this natural border and the Northumberland National Park.
The Northumbrian coastline is one of the most searingly beautiful stretches of shoreline in Europe. With its great castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick, as well as the magical Holy Island of Lindisfarne, this was the coast the Viking long ships most commonly raided and Northumberland became the heart of a Viking Kingdom. Following the Vikings there came centuries of vicious border wars, as evidenced by the abundant remains of peel towers, castles and forts stretching over the broad rolling landscape that is the perfect evocation of Northumberland's mystical and murderous history.
Even in the summer it is possible to enjoy the quiet, largely traffic free lanes, but in the autumn, winter and spring, the same experience can be enjoyed but with the roads and the area, seemingly at times, being yours alone.
Staying in summer or winter at The Lord Crewe Hotel in Bamburgh village allows guests to enjoy the best of what this beautiful county has to offer, with our village location opposite the castle, stylish bedrooms of varying sizes (some with full castle views) and our in house dining facilities available in the Wynding Inn Bar & Restaurant/Beer Garden, we offer individuality and atmosphere in an informal but comfortable setting.
