Local Attractions near Longhirst Hall Hotel, Golf & Spa
Longhirst is centrally located in Northumbria, famous for its castles and broad golden beaches and one of the few English regions with huge expanses of breathtaking untouched countryside. Dozens of historic villages are sprinkled across the region, and the North Pennines has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In direct contrast, towns and cities offer every excitement and Newcastle for example, offers the best choice of shopping. The area is alive with a vibrant sense of heritage and it is still possible to see reminders of the legacy of the Roman Empire, medieval border warfare and the early steps of English Christianity.
