North Tyne and Redesdale
Scattered through the wild landscape, which was once the stamping ground of the notorious Border clans – the Reivers, are the historic remains of castles and bastles. Discover the ruins of a Roman fort at High Rochester and the Percy Cross at Otterburn. The large forests provide the rare red squirrel with a secure home along with otters, which can be seen along the rivers and burns.
Bellingham is a historic market town on the Pennine Way National Trail. Close by is Hareshaw Linn waterfall, which is a great place for family walks. Villages such as Greenhaugh and Falstone provide pubs and tearooms to relax in and meet some of the local people.
