Northumberland is a great holiday for those who enjoy being outdoors with their dog. The Northumberland National Park protects roughly one quarter of the whole county, an area which has largely been protected from development and agriculture. The park even includes Hadrian’s Wall as it stretches south from the Scottish border. As well as almost a quarter of the county being a National Park the Northumberland Coast is also a designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty". The Fontburn reservoir is another area of natural beauty worth visiting, the circular walk around the reservoir and spacious picnicking area make for a scenic and relaxing day out.
Dogs on a lead can also visit the Isle of Lindisfarne, accessible twice a day by a causeway revealed only by the tide, Lindisfarne is the site of one of the oldest monasteries in the UK and a truly unique experience. Another unique Northumberland attraction is Northumberlandia. Northumberlandia is a public art creation of hills shaped to look like a woman lying in profile, set in a 46 acre park and with four miles of footpaths.
Northumberland is undoubtedly one of England’s most beautiful, rural and wild counties; much of the land is untouched by modern development. Northumberland is a perfect place for those who love the outdoors and love sharing the outdoors with their dog.Here are Farm Stay’s selection of Dog Friendly Holiday properties in Northumberland.
