Walking holidays in Northumberland start in Alwinton. You’ll need gusto and ambition to complete all the walks in Alwinton in a week, let alone a weekend. But then you could just return again, and again because there’s mountain biking and horse riding too. Alwinton village has an enviable location deep in Northumberland National Park, on the south eastern edge of the Cheviot Hills.
The rivers Alwin and Coquet meander into this pretty rural spot guiding some of the walking trails and steering many to the village pub in search of refreshment. Walking aside, this area of Upper Coquetdale is also renowned for a series of summer concerts in Alwinton that attract composers and performers both well known and new.
Whether you’re in search of a Northumbrian rural retreat, an exception walking holiday or a musically inspired break, this idyllic spot certainly ticks all the boxes. Come see for yourself and enjoy the area from one of our range of Alwinton holiday cottages.
