About Us

Northumberland is wild and beautiful.  It’s England’s most northerly county and has some of the countries most stunning beaches, glorious castles, incredible wildlife and the warmest of welcomes.  Northumberland has rugged mountains, moorland, forests, lakes and historic gardens.   We think it’s quite the most gorgeous part of the world to visit and call home.  There are wild fishing rivers here, a breed of cattle that are rarer than Giant Pandas and 97% of its land is classified as rural.

We class Northumberland as our spiritual home and we’d love to share it with you.  There are stunning seaside villages and towns here, artisan food suppliers, and more than 70 castles speak of the history of this area. 

Northumberland’s Best was founded and is research, written and funded by Sarah Carter and Nigel Dockerty.  We’ve lived, visited and explored Northumberland for decades now and continue to find new places, history and nooks and crannies to visit.  Welcome and we hope you’ll enjoy Northumberland as much as we do.
