I was born and raised in Northumberland but left the area for over 15 years to pursue a career in Cambridgeshire. Swapping corporate life for country living, I have now returned to live in Northumberland, a county I am proud to call home.
I have recently set up Karen’s Kottages to share my enthusiasm of Northumberland and all that it offers with others by providing comfortable, self-catering cottages in great locations. I also have a high-spec VW California camper van from which to explore the area in. I have a cottage and camper van up and running with more to follow… an offer has just been accepted on a second cottage!
I am married to Phil, and together with our dog Fern, we enjoy exploring Northumberland and the surrounding area whenever time permits.
I have set up an ‘Out and About’ page to share some of these photos with you and my ‘To Do’ page has lots of ideas for things to do and see whilst you’re here. I know the area well and would also be happy to help you plan your visit if you have any special requests.
