Britain’s domesic tourism boom looks set to continue this summer and Northumberland is in many people’s thoughts for a getaway.
The county is famed for its beautiful scenery and virtually deserted beaches - and boasts numerous excellent campsites.
Certainly, if the weather behaves it will be just as good – and a lot cheaper – than anywhere else you could wish to be.
