Things To Do

Laverock is a perfect base for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers.

Holy Island – cross the dramatic tidal causeway, to explore the fantastic isolated beaches, Lindisfarne Priory and Castle. Experience the jewel in the crown of Northumberland and its unique tranquillity and spirituality.

Kyloe Hills – an inspirational mix of woodland and open farmland with rugged rocky outcrops which provides a variety of outdoor opportunities, ranging from gentle woodland strolls to off road cycling and rock climbing.

St Cuthbert’s Way & Cave – winding all the way down from Melrose to Holy Island this long distance footpath is just 2 miles from Laverock Law cottages.

Local Towns to visit:

St Cuthbert's CaveBerwick – Highly picturesque, Berwick is the northernmost town in England. Steeped in history and fascinating to explore on foot. The town is piled upon a peninsula at the mouth of the Tweed and it faces the river, rather than the sea.

Three great bridges connect it with Tweedmouth on the south side of the estuary: the low stone bridge with 15 arches of varying height and width, completed in 1634. Why not visit the many shops and explore it’s historical surroundings?

Alnwick (pronounced ‘Annick’) is 4m from the coast and just off the A1 almost half way between Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Berwick-upon-Tweed. Visited by HRH Queen Elizabeth II last year, this fascinating destination offers shops, markets and the infamous Alnwick Castle & Alnwick Garden, home to the current Duke & Duchess of Northumberland.

Alnwick CastleBelford is an ancient village situated in North Northumberland.  In the centre of the village you will find the Market Square and it’s medieval cross. Situated in the North Northumberland countryside, Belford is great for Cycling or Walking holidays and is just a short distance from the Northumberland coast and the costal villages of Bamburgh (5 miles) and Seahouses (8.5 miles).

Dramatic Coast – Coastal Fortifications:

Bamburgh Castle is a breathtaking castle with views to Lindisfarne and the Farne Islands. It has fourteen rooms plus collections of porcelain, glassware, paintings and tapestries. The Armstrong and Aviation Artefacts Museum contains relics from two world wars and the famous Spitfire.

Along the Northumberland Coast, there are many historic ruins and buildings. Dunstanburgh Castle (an interesting ruin overlooking the sea) or Warkworth Castle situated high on a hill in the town of Warkworth are two other places of interest.

The Farne Islands, two miles off the coast of Seahouses is home to wildlife and thousands of birds. Visitors can see puffins, guillemots or the colony of grey seals on the island. Boat trips leave the harbour every day from April to September.

Traditional Northumbrian towns like Alnwick, Alnmouth and Morpeth are nearby and only a short drive away. Full of history, things to do and places to explore, you will be spoilt for choice at the range of places to visit. Close by are stunning walks near the River Coquet or visit the nationally awarded Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There are so many places to visit in Northumberland which attracts tourists, cyclists, nature lovers and walkers from around the world. The stunning Northumbrian coastline combined with rugged National parks and countryside is a natural beauty.
