Northumberland is a land of peace and solitude. The wide open spaces of the Northumberland National Park provide a landscape of seemingly endless beauty, from the astonishing engineering feat of Hadrian's wall, to the breathtaking Cheviot Hills. It offers something for everyone; walkers, nature lovers, photographers, artists and landscape enthusiasts.
Northumberland is the most northerly English county. The eastern coast, is low lying and sandy, behind which lies a wide coastal plain. The north provides much rich grazing land, and further west a bare upland country leads to the Cheviot Hills. The Pennine moors and dales lie in the south-west of the county, which are richly wooded towards the Tyne valley, where the River Tyne meanders along the southern border of the county.
