Other articles of interest

Here at Northumbria-byways we have a lot of experience with helping visitors find an ideal holiday cottage when they want to bring their dog or dogs along as well. Here are a number of articles which cover topical issues.

At the top end of the market we have a good selection of 5 star or luxury holiday cottages which will accept dogs. You can find good examples all across Northumberland. From Dunsdale house high up on the Cheviot down to Greystead beside the castle at Bamburgh.

Often families will ask if they can bring more than one dog on holiday. It can sometimes be difficult to understand exactly what cottage owners are happy with so we have these articles as a general introduction.

1. An introduction to bringing more than one dog. If you are unsure about the choices and just want a brief overview then this article will be a good start. It showcases a selection a selection of dog friendly cottages across Northumberland.

2. Northumberland coast. This article is a good introduction to holidays along the coast.

3.North Northumberland also has it's own page.

4. And of course we always ask our guests to be aware the house rules for pet friendly accommodation.

If you are looking at a specific area of Northumberland for a holiday with two dogs then these articles will help

1.North Northumberland for 2 or more dogs. From Wooler and across the Millfield plain to the Tweed Valley. Also the College Valley and the Cheviot itself.

2.North Pennines for 2 or more dogs.A quieter part of Northumberland with some great houses such as The Deeps which was previously owned by Rowan Atkinson.

3. Northumberland coast for 2 or more dogs.Over 100 kms of sandy beaches and rocky headlands. Great for dogs and walking.

We know some visitors who literally come with a pack of dogs. I think the record was set by a visitor who stayed at Coldburn Cottage along with 6 dogs. Read more about choices here.

Occasionally our visitors ask for isolated and remote cottages. Northumberland with its wide open and empty spaces has, as you would expect, a good choice.

Cottages for walking holidays.Northumberland is the 4th largest county in England and there are some great walks across the empty spaces up here.Even if you are not walking the full distance the routes can still offer inspiration for a great day out with the dogs.

 We have a good number of long distance walks. For instance

1. The Pennine Way which enters Northumberland between Alston and Slaggyford. It then descends to the Tyne Valley by Haltwhistle. After this it crosses Hadrian's Wall before heading north for the Cheviot and eventually across the border and into Scotland. It ends up at Kirk Yetholm.

2. St Cuthberts Way. The trail crosses the border line into England and the first village is then Hethpool. From here the walk goes to Wooler which is traditionally the final overnight stop. The next day you have some 18 miles to walk and at the end the dramatic crossing of the tidal flats at Lindisfarne.

3. The Northumberland coastal path from Druridge Bay in the south up to Berwick just before the border with Scotland.
