Allensford

This quaint town is surrounded by the serene Northumberland countryside. Its rural location allows for visitors to experience a secluded country retreat, yet it is close to the cities of Newcastle and Durham for those wanting to see what the North of England has to offer. A great base for those looking to explore the local area. With market towns, lively cities and plenty of nearby activities all close at hand. There are nearby golf courses, cycle paths, fishing spots and hiking trails all available for visitors to explore.

We love Allensford because...

  • Ideal country retreat
  • Nearby idyllic Alnwick Castle
  • See history come alive

Alnwick Castle

This majestic castle has served as the backdrop for many films and television shows including; the Harry Potter films, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Blackadder and Downton Abbey to name but a few. It’s not hard to see why, with an imposing and dramatic exterior and a magnificently upholstered and decorated interior – this is a true gem in Northumberland. This iconic landmark has been home to the Percy family for over 700 years, making it one of the largest inhabited castles in the UK.

Hadrian’s Wall

Built in the year 122 AD, this defensive wall was built by the Roman Empire to mark out the edge of their territory and to keep the Scottish (then known as barbarians) out. Hadrian's Wall stretches across the north of England to Newcastle upon Tyne, Wallsend and South Shields. In Northumberland, many parts of the wall are still intact and you can also visit the Roman Vindolanda (a Roman auxiliary fort) and the Roman Army Museum as well as the English Heritage sites of Housesteads Roman Fort and Chesters Roman Fort.

Beamish Museum

An open-air museum, which aims to preserve the history of the local area during the height of the Industrial Revolution. Learn about the late Victorian and Edwardian era, walking through restored and replicated buildings, viewing artefacts along with vehicles and equipment of the time as well as the costumed staff, who bring the museum to life. This is a magical experience that seems to really transport you back in time.
