There's plenty to see and do
If you’re looking to enjoy the best of coast, country and city then you’ll find few better destinations than the Northumberland village of Chollerford. The lively city of Newcastle, the Northumberland National Park, Hadrian’s Wall and the beaches of Alnmouth, Blyth and Druridge are all just a short drive away. Savour the silence, look out over lush landscapes and, at all times, know that Northumberland’s best attractions are right on your doorstep.
Within walking distance of Hadrian’s Wall, Chollerford offers more than just open fields. Walkers and cyclists will be in their element exploring a myriad of rural tracks and trails, whilst the River Tyne passes through the village and makes Chollerford a favourite destination for fishing trips. Permits for fishing are available at the George Hotel, along with a selection of other great leisure facilities.
Chollerford could be described as a ‘sleepy’ village. Despite its convenient location, it offers very little in the way of things to do. The emphasis is on rest and relaxation, and you’ll need to travel a little further afield to find family attractions and major monuments. In fact, the most iconic features of the village itself are the George Hotel and the Chollerford Bridge.
All ages will love a stay in Chollerford, where busy workers can forget about deadlines and where couples can enjoy romantic walks accompanied only by the sound of birdsong. Picnics might feature heavily on your list of things to do, and after the sun sets you can lie back and stare at the stars dotting a night sky that’s completely free of artificial light pollution.
Visitors to Chollerford will enjoy a warm Northumberland welcome, and a chance to relax and unwind before taking on their surroundings. Once you’re ready to explore, you can fill your time with activities ranging from sight-seeing boat trips to shopping days in Newcastle.
