Northumberland has been nominated in the British Travel Awards in the category of Best UK Holiday Destination / County. In 2014 Northumberland was awarded silver, beaten into the top spot by Cornwall. Up against Cornwall, Devon and Pembrokeshire, this year we are going for gold!
Footballing legend Alan Shearer explained why he believes Northumberland deserves the vote, as he said: “I love everything about Northumberland, the beaches, people, castles, long walks and cycle paths and especially the golf courses along the coastline. There really is something for everyone. A great place to relax, explore and enjoy.”
As a thank you for getting involved, Northumberland Tourism is offering the chance for one lucky voter and their family the chance to win a 3 night stay for up to four people in Otterstone Lodge, Leaplish Waterside Park, Kielder.
