Welcome to the beautiful and historic County of Northumberland and Hadrian’s Wall Country.
Northumberland is "England’s Border Country", a stunning region of country walks and strolls along a picturesque coast, a land of history and heritage around every corner, a friendly county of country pubs and charming cottages.
Carraw Bed and Breakfast is situated on the Northern frontier of the Roman Empire, within Northumberland National Park. Spread over the hills and valleys at the very top of England, but right in the centre of Britain, Northumberland National Park has unspoilt treasures awaiting your discovery. Ancient pre-history and the rare red squirrel exist alongside traditional lifestyles with a thriving culture.
There are distinct characteristics within the landscape of the National Park. To the north there are the breathtaking rolling moors and grasslands of the Cheviot Hills, with their ancient hillforts and pure rivers. In the centre is Rothbury and Coquetdale with the landmark Simonside Hills and the beautiful villages of Harbottle and Holystone. To the west are the valleys of the North Tyne and Redesdale, wild, inspiring and once home of the Border Reivers and still inhabited by red squirrels. In the south is the iconic ridge of the Whin Sill with Hadrian’s Wall striding along its crest.
There are so many ways of experiencing the special qualities of the National Park. Sample local produce from one of the Farmers' Markets, walk in the footsteps of the Romans on a National Trail, take in the scenery on horseback or on a chauffeured trike tour, climb the crags and cycle the byways or join in with the music and dancing at a local show.
If you are looking for a relaxing or active break at any time of the year in England's Border Country, Carraw Bed and Breakfast is ideally situated to meet your needs. We will make you very welcome and ensure your stay is memorable.
