If you're visiting Northumberland with kids

Northumberland is a playground for kids. With its historic castles like Alnwick Castle, which doubled as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films, and vast beaches like Bamburgh, there's plenty to spark young imaginations.

Holiday parks in the UK, especially in Northumberland, are geared up for families. They offer the space for kids to play safely and the chance to make new friends. Don't forget to pack these essentials:

  1. Comfortable walking shoes for exploring
  2. Waterproof clothing – the weather can be unpredictable
  3. Beach gear for sunny days at Bamburgh or Druridge Bay
  4. Binoculars for bird watching at Farne Islands
  5. Costumes for castle adventures
  6. Sun protection – yes, even in Northumberland
  7. Swimwear for the holiday park pool

Pet-Friendly Holidays?

Northumberland loves pets nearly as much as we do. Many holiday parks welcome dogs, and there are plenty of dog-friendly pubs and eateries. The Joiners Arms in Newton by the Sea and The Ship Inn at Low Newton are just a couple of spots where your furry friends can join in.

Remember to keep your pet on a lead near livestock (there are sheep literally  everywhere!)
