About the neighbourhood
The area has the best of all worlds with beaches, hills, forests and historic places and landscape. The Tower is conveniently located an hour by car from Newcastle and it is just an hour by train to Edinburgh. We are also well placed for trips to Hadrian's Wall and the lovely historic centres such as Hexham and Corbridge. There are numerous links golf courses and the area has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Bueaty (AONB). Northumberland is one of Englands largest and least populated counties, it is also one of it's best kept secrets so do come and visit us to show I am not just being biased!
