Guided  Walking in Britain

Northumberland     Alnmouth

Northumberland in England's north-east has one of the country's most magnificent  coasts with sweeps of sand punctuated by fishing villages and castles including Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Alnwick with its lovely gardens. Hadrian's Wall is here as well as the Holy Isle of Lindisfarne founded in 635AD. The walks sample both the coastline and moorland scenery of Northumberland.

NETHER GRANGE occupies a wonderful position in the quiet harbour village of Alnmouth.  From the elevated croquet lawn and terrace you can enjoy sweeping views across sand dunes to the sea. The building began life as a granary and now is a comfortable hotel with 34 bedrooms and retaining much of its old character.  With a peaceful atmosphere and beautiful unspoiled coastline to enjoy, a relaxing stay is assured.
