Explore the wonderful charm of the countryside in the North Tyne and Rede valleys. Meander along the winding rivers, quiet woodlands and be invigorated by the majestic hills. Feel the vibrant community spirit celebrating the wonderful quality of life in these twinned valleys.

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.
