Wintry Things To Do In Northumberland

03 Feb 2023

Escaping to the countryside for a stay at your Northumberland holiday home this winter? If that’s the case, you’ll want to know all the best things to do to keep you entertained when cold temperatures and dark nights are in full swing.

Frosty walks, vibrant food festivals and cosy cafes can all be enjoyed in Northumberland during winter. With countless events and happenings on too, it’s safe to say that you’ll never run out of things to do even when the weather is cold and frosty.

Discover fairy lights lining cobbled, characterful streets and sparkling frost making each and every landscape even more magical. What’s more, you can escape the cold by warming up in your holiday home by the fire with a yummy cup of hot chocolate!

Go for a frosty Northumberland walk

Grab your woolly scarf, gloves and hat and layer up before you head outside for a crisp walk in Northumberland.

Prepare to be swept up by coastal views with a blustery walk along Bamburgh Beach or venture to the countryside to enjoy views of snow-topped hills, frost-tipped trees and ice-glazed streams.

Enjoy a spot of stargazing

In the winter months when the sun sets, Northumberland is home to some of the darkest, clearest skies. This creates the perfect canvas for a spot of stargazing, so why not head to an observatory for the evening or stargaze by car with a flask, warm clothes and binoculars?

Visit a Northumberland food market

Enjoy some seasonal local produce at Northumberland’s best food and drink markets. Feast on delectable cheese, sample sweet ciders, and tuck into chocolatey surprises at the many market stalls across the county.

Get comfy in a local restaurant

This time of year, there’s nothing better than taking a moment to get out of the cold and into a  cosy, comfortable cafe or restaurant. Pause for a warm cup of cocoa or tuck into a mouth-watering three course meal at either of our eateries in Northumberland.

Ord House Lounge Bar & Grill offers a warm and friendly atmosphere with a menu of pub favourites and the most popular beers, ciders, spirits and soft drinks. Prince William Bar & Grill is also open year-round for tasty lunches, evening meals and snacks.
