Properties for sale in Northumberland, sell your home privately in Northumberland
Northumberland is so called because it is the most northern of all the English counties. It shares its borders with County Durham and Cumbria in England, and the Scottish Borders to the north. This county is the furthest from London whilst still being situated in England, and the driving time to the capital is around five and a half hours from its centre. This is a highly desirable location for property buyers, and house types include Victorian era properties and village houses, as well as modern developer’s estates.
The county town is under dispute, with Morpeth and Alnwick each claiming the title, but one of the best known towns is Berwick_upon_Tweed, a fantastic little location on the Tweed Estuary and with delightful views across the North Sea. Places of interest in Northumberland include the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, and Chillingham Castle, said to be the most haunted place in England.
