Daily life can be tough for us all sometimes with deadlines due at work, family commitments over the summer and of course keeping the children occupied over the summer holidays. Sometimes we just need to get away from the daily stresses that hang over us; if they are prolonged it can lead to restless nights of sleep and our emotions can run high, leaving our concentration levels at an all-time low which in turn, can affect our performance at work and home.

In order to replenish our minds, sometimes we need to take a break in a peaceful, scenic area and relive our relationship with nature, breathing in the crisp fresh air. Based in the heart of Northumberland, lies a collection of luxury self-catering cottages, ideal for families and couples who are looking for holidays in Northumberland.
