Feel alive in Northumberland’s stunning landscapes

Once Brewed, Northumberland

Be inspired by the beauty of Northumberland’s protected parks and stunning coastline, and be dazzled by the stars in its clear night skies.

Northumberland National Park is the ideal destination for anyone who wants to get off the beaten track and surround themselves with amazing landscapes. It also has a rich array of wildlife, from wild goats to red squirrels.

Along with Kielder Water & Forest Park, Northumberland National Park forms an International Dark Sky Park. It’s the largest in Europe, where you can be spellbound by up to 2,000 stars at any one time.

The coastline is also a protected nature reserve with endless beaches, rocky cliffs inhabited by seabirds and immense sand dunes. And spectacular wilderness and varied wildlife also await just south of the Northumberland National Park, in The North Pennines, the second-largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England.

Once Brewed, a village at the edge of the Northumberland National Park, is 35 miles (56km) from Newcastle, which is 2 hours 50 minutes from London by train.
