The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Places to stay

From award-winning B&Bs to eco-campsites, Northumberland has the lot as far as places to stay are concerned. The rural character of the region extends to its accommodation, so you can expect farmhouse bed and breakfasts and country-house hotels by the bucket-load, but there's some serious style creeping in too, so boutique hotels and pubs with rooms as well as and glamping sites are very definitely part of the picture. Youth hostels – such as those at Berwick upon Tweed and Alnwick – are part of the new-wave in hostelling, more like budget hotels in style and substance, and great places to stay for families and independent travellers alike. Rustic pubs and inns are seemingly in every village and hamlet, and many have upped their game in recent years to offer outstanding B&Bs in some of the UK's most picturesque spots. Hexham and Berwick are the biggest towns with the most choice in accommodation. Otherwise, hiking and biking centres such as Rothbury and Bellingham in Northumberland National Park have plenty of budget places to stay, while the coast between Bamburgh and Seahouses can be counted on for traditional seaside B&Bs, harbourside pubs and fancier hotels.
