Things To Do in Stamford

Not to be confused with the south Lincolnshire market town, Stamford is a charming Northumberland hamlet just under a mile away from the village of Rennington. Take a leisurely stroll into Rennington to the family-run Horseshoes Inn.
Dating back to 1841, its flagstone floors and other original features are reminders that it used to be home to a blacksmith’s forge. Your pooches will be made to feel welcome in the bar and the spacious beer garden.

The historic market town of Alnwick is less than a 10-minute drive, or you can cycle it in under half an hour. You will be delighted by the choice of independent shops where you can stock up on local produce for meals in the cottage’s bespoke kitchen.
If you are a bibliophile, then a visit to Barter Books in Alnwick has to be on your must-do list. The UK’s biggest second-hand bookstore, it is housed in the town’s old Victorian railway station. Here you can sit beside its open fires, read, enjoy a meal from the Station Buffet, and marvel at the model railway linking the book columns and perusing its 40 antique glass bookcases.
For families with young children, there is a room just for them filled with toys to keep them occupied while you browse.
You might need an extra day here because it is hard to resist a visit to Alnwick Castle, which was used in the Harry Potter films. You can tour its awe-inspiring interior and explore the 12-acres of multi-award-winning gardens that include the world’s largest treehouse restaurant.

There are some lovely beaches close by and Craster, a quaint harbour town with a bijou beach, is only 3.5 miles from Stamford.

Last Word

You are indeed in the heart of Northumberland, where splendid coast and country meet. You are on the edge of the national park with its bracing air, pristine waters and dark skies. It has unique quirks like wild cheviot goat-spotting and an observatory in the woods where you can go stargazing.
There are guided walks along the remotest footpaths and cycling trails where you are likely to spot wildlife such as red squirrels and birds such as red and black grouse, waders and dippers.

Cushat House is in a tranquil setting where you can park up, unpack and immediately experience a sense of calm. The contemporary interior is thoughtfully designed to provide a comfortable but luxurious stay for its guests.
The emphasis is on space and light in the open plan kitchen and dining area and there are two sitting rooms that provide more than enough room for everyone.

Make sure to plan your stay here because there is just so much to see and do. From ancient fortresses to majestic castles where dukes and duchesses preside, from wild, rugged stretches of coastline to sandy beaches and quaint harbour towns, it promises to be one of those holidays that will leave you wanting to come back for more.
