The village of Harlow Hill lies on the B6318 or "Military" Road running along the course of Hadrian's Wall.

It is approximately 12 miles to the bustling city of Newcastle upon Tyne but sits in wide open countryside with views over the Tyne Valley.

The complex at Harlow Hill MXVI is the ideal base from which to explore the many sights and sounds on Northumberland. Nearby market towns and villages such as Wylam, Corbridge and Hexham provide great days out for exploring and browsing galleries, attractions and shops each with their own distinctive character and individual charm.

For the fisherman, Harlow Hill MXVI is superbly situated a short distance from one of the counties most respected still water fisheries at Whittle Dene with the River Tyne only a few minutes car journey away. Massively improved over the years, the Tyne now boasts one of the most consistent seasonal salmon and sea-trout runs in England and day tickets are available from various outlets.

For the keen golfer, the location provides a wealth of opportunities on your very doorstep with excellent golf courses at Prudhoe and Matfen as well as the new Lee Westwood world class championship course at Close House, all within a 5 mile radius. The famous Slaley Hall championship courses meanwhile are just 15 miles away.

The lover of the outdoors will find themselves spoilt for choice throughout the region. For the keen walkers and cyclists, the length of Hadrian's Wall, which literally runs past the door, will allow glimpses into some of the most spectacular countryside in all of England. Moving further afield the county opens up for exploration - the beautiful wilderness of the Cheviot Hills, easily visible from many parts of the Wall, where often, you are more likely to encounter a wild goat than another person! This is the "Land of the Far Horizon" spoken of by George Trevelyan, and now part of the Northumberland National Park, it has often been called England's Last Wilderness.

Around one hours drive to the West brings you to the outdoor playground of Kielder Forest & Kielder Water - The site of the largest man-made lake in Europe and at 250 square miles, the largest working forest in England. Miles of spectacular and professionally designed and constructed mountain bike trails, a birds of prey centre, a multitude of inspirational outdoor art installations, sailing, water skiing and kayaking makes it a fantastic destination for all of the family. Thanks to the unpolluted nature of the skies, Kielder also boasts it's very own observatory where you can gaze at distant galaxies and learn about the universe.

A trip to the North East coast is often one of the most memorable days out for the visitor. Wildly varied - from rugged cliff-top castles to explore to stunning sandy beaches to stroll along and paddle in the sea.
