Northumberland5 Things You Might Not Know About Northumberland

At The Bondgate Boutique, we love Northumberland and we’re sure that you will too! If you’re planning a trip to England’s most northern county, here’s 5 things you might not know about the area:

1 Kielder Water and Forest Park (50 miles from Alnwick via the B6341) is home to the largest man-made lake and forest in Northern Europe.

2 Northumberland has the lowest population density in England – there’s plenty of open space where you can unwind.

3 Northumberland has more castles than any other English county.

4 Northumberland is where you can view Europe’s biggest area of protected night sky – great for star-gazers. – Read more on Star-gazing here in Northumberland: CLICK HERE

5 Northumberland has a turbulent history – the 16th Century saw frequent and often bloody battles with Border Reivers and invading Scots!
