Activities: Norham North Northumberland
Let’s face it, there is so much to do in and around Norham that we cannot list it all here. Many people come back to us again, and again, that pretty well says it all.
The Cheviots and Northumberland National Park has to be near the top of many peoples list of places to see and visit.
Salmon fishing on Ladykirk, Pedwell, Horncliffe and many other local salmon beats can be arranged through any of the following:-
FishTweed . Trout fishing is managed by Ladykirk and Norham Angling Association and tickets are available in the village shops and the two pubs. Other river, loch and sea fishing is available in the area.
The cottage has easy access to a number of waymarked quiet country walks and footpaths along the Tweed and into surrounding countryside. Enjoy seeing the local wildlife. Tweed defines the Border here so you can walk in England or Scotland.
If you’re bringing bicycles why not try the Tweed Cycle way which you can join across Norham Bridge. Or you can hire bikes locally from Wilson Cycles Tel: 01289-331476.
Norham itself has a rich Border History, with historic St Cuthbert’s church a “must see”. The village is dominated by the ruins of Norham Castle, scene of many famous events. There are two pubs, a village shop and newsagent and an excellent butcher you’ll find most things you need in the village during your stay.
For B&B accommodation in this area we recommend Hethpool House in the beautiful College Valley.
For B& B accomodation further north we recommend Moville in Pitlochry.
