Our Inspector's view

Expect the highest quality of accommodation at Market Cross Guest House. You'll find beautiful, well-appointed rooms with large screen TVs, Nespresso machines, White Company toiletries and so much more. Excellent locally sourced ingredients as well as homemade bread and preserves are just part of our breakfast. There's also a large garden in which to enjoy the evening sun. Food quality is important and is why as much as possible is homemade. From the bread, jams and marmalades to granola, and muesli, it's all made in house. Winner of North East England Tourism Awards Gold Award 2022 and Bronze in 2021.

About the area

Discover Northumberland

If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.

Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
