This is a historic county that borders Scotland, and a nod to the often-turbulent relationship between the two neighbours is in the fact that Northumberland has more castles than any other part of England.

Where are the best home-mover destinations in Northumberland?

There are lots of attractive locations within Northumberland, thanks to its natural beauty and the unspoilt nature of many towns and villages. Among the most sought-after are the market towns of Alnwick, famed for its castle, which featured in the Harry Potter movies, and pretty Morpeth, where upmarket shopping has transformed the area.

In the very north of the county is Berwick-upon-Tweed, the town that changed hands between Scotland and England several times during border skirmishes but has been resolutely on the south of the border since the 13th century. Its fortified town walls remain a testament to a turbulent history.

Northumberland's most popular coastal locations include Bamburgh (featuring yet another castle), Seahouses and Alnmouth, while Ashington's rail links make it a fashionable commuter choice. Inland, look to Rothbury and Corbridge.

Which council has control of schooling in Northumberland?

Northumberland County Council is the local authority responsible for all state education in the county. There are also independent and academy schools. You can use the government's school comparison website to check the Ofsted ranking of your chosen school.

Did you know?

Northumberland takes its name from its ancient kingdom, once the biggest in the British Isles. The kingdom stretched from the River Humber, near Hull, to the Firth of Forth near Edinburgh, creating the name Northumberland.

Holy Island is a tidal island off the Northumberland coast, which has been a religious site since the sixth century. In the Victorian era, lime quarrying took place on the island with lime kilns fired by coal imported there from Scotland.

No Completion No Fee is our promise that in the unfortunate event that your property transaction falls-through you will not be liable for any of the conveyancer’s fixed legal fees for the work completed.

To secure this benefit a fee, already included in your quote, is taken upon on deciding to go ahead with your transaction.

Should your transaction fall through, for whatever reason, we can hold this amount on account for your next transaction or provide a refund.

Your Fixed Legal Fee** quote from Homeward Legal ensures that you pay no more than we have quoted you for and is based on the information you’ve provided to us being true and accurate.

There are specific circumstances on a minority of transactions that may require additional charges that could not be foreseen at the outset.

A list of those charges and explanations can be found here with details of the potential cost. These will only be charged following discussion with your conveyancer with a clear explanation of what they are for.
