A picturesque landscape of high hills, open moorland, gently rolling farmland and the scenic River Breamish!

BREAMISH VALLEY winds through the Cheviot Hills of north Northumberland, meandering through the Northumberland National Park. Home to a wide range of wildlife, trees and flowers, the ancient landscape also boasts numerous Neolithic and Bronze Age hillforts and burial sites.

As part of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, Breamish Valley is a stargazer's paradise: it has the clearest night skies in England!

And being just a few miles from the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of Northumberland's unspoilt coastline and beaches, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

Sheep herding through Branton

Rules of the country lanes

It’s just one of the rules – and absolute joys – of country life, that you give way to sheep. And, while you wait for these serene, bleating balls of fluff to pass, it does give you that opportunity to just halt a while and realise that you don’t always have to be rushing hither and thither (a much underused phrase, I think). I had time to think of that phrase recently, while halted in total gridlock (wink) when attempting to ride through Branton a week or so ago:

Wildlife and weather

By Hugh Tindle

THE SPRING WEATHER WAS rather unpredictable to say the least. Having struggled through April with some very chilly days and nights it seemed quite bizarre that we should end the month with more snow on the ground than there had been throughout the entire winter.
