Looking for a way to spend your long-awaited log cabin holiday. If you are on the hunt for the perfect vacation spot where you can take your family and friends for a one-of-a-kind adventure, the county of Northumberland in the northern part of England is definitely a viable option. Located at the northernmost tip of England, Northumberland is considered as a NUTS 3 region, or a part of the three unitary districts that make up the “Tyne and Wear and Northumberland” region. This beautiful county bounds Cumbria on the west, Tyne and Wear to the southeast, and the County Durham to the south. Being on the border of England and Scotland, Northumberland is historically considered as the “land of many battles”. But with its innate beauty and rich history at hand, it continues to dazzle and attract tourists from all parts of England and the globe up to this day.
If you are looking for some great outdoor holiday fun while in Northumberland, you are definitely in the right place if you visit the Kielder Water Bird of Prey Centre. This bird park in Falstone is considered one of the most diverse centers in England and houses over 200 birds of prey in Northern England. Inside Kielder, you can watch eagles and falcons soaring at incredible speeds and see the grace and beauty of sea birds, hawks and kites who hunt for food. You can also ask to hold and handle some of the birds if you promise to be careful not to startle them.
On the other hand, if a trip to ancient history is what you are looking for, the single most important place that you should visit is the Hadrian’s Wall. Built approximately in 120 CE by the Roman Emperor Hadrian, this massive feat of Engineering runs almost 75 miles from Bowness-on-Solway to Wallsend. This wall was originally built to keep the barbarians out of Britain during the time when wars and ambushes were normal events in the country. Today, although much of it is crumbled, Hadrian’s wall still attracts a lot of tourists who want to learn about the great history not only of Northumberland but of England as a whole.
To make sure that you and your companions get only the best of what Northumberland has to offer, always get your log cabin reservations at least 1 week in advance. This practice, if followed, will not only help you prepare better for your trip but most importantly avoid the hassles of cramming for your vacation accommodation.
