What makes me different?
The apartment is very spacious just for 4 guests as with it being originally part of the very old house next door, the rooms are vast. Yet with all the modern home comforts and contemporary decor, it still has a cosy feel, despite it’s hint of grandeur. Morpeth is a gorgeous market town yet only 25 minutes drive to the coast at Druridge Bay Country Park. It’s a gorgeous place to be based and return to after a long day.

Map & Local Area
Beautiful Morpeth town is a lively and bustling market town with shops old and new, most notably the renowned family-run department store, Rutherfords on the main street. There are some lovely restaurants and great cafes and bars too, and a large and beautiful public park bordering the river called Carlisle Park.
Situated on the edge of this lovely small town, it has formal gardens, an aviary, play areas, a paddling pool, ancient woodland, picnic areas, tennis courts, bowling greens, a skate park and much more, including a garden dedicated to William Turner, who was born in Morpeth in 1508 and is known as the ‘father of English botany’. He was the very first person to record, in English, the names and medicinal uses of plants in his three-part Herbal. The gardens contain plants Turner found during his travels in Europe.

Tips from a local
Northumberland Country Zoo
This makes a great day out for children (and adults!) and is located just off the A1, no more than 15 minutes drive from Morpeth. It’s not a full zoo with wild animals like tigers or lions, but has some interesting animals that you can feed like alpacas and donkeys, as well as meerkats, wallaby’s and different birds (that you can’t feed!).
They have a little gift shop and a cafe, as well as a great play park for children. It’s perfect for a fine day as it’s mostly outdoors.
Check out the Northumberland Country Zoo website for more details.
