We like these people...
...for all sorts of different reasons!
On this page, you'll find links to websites which belong to people we think well of, for one reason or another. We have no control over their content, so if you find something there which you don't like, please don't come after us - we have enough trouble being responsible for our own words.

A while ago we had a lovely email from a lady called Rachel who has a website about her work and her hermitage, called St Cuthbert's House! Her work is lovely, and so we thought we'd encourage you to visit...
We get lots of birdwatchers coming to Northumberland. If you're one of them, you might want to check out theNorthumberland page on the 'fat birder' site.
Greentraveller is a well-respected authority on things to do with sustainable tourism, and we were really pleased to find that they wanted to include a listing about us on their website.
We're also featured on Green Day Out, a site for days out and accommodation across the UK, whatever the weather.
For a self catering holiday cottage near beautiful Dunstanburgh Castle, Shepherds Cottage - Self Catering Holiday Cottage, Dunstan Steads, Northumberland Coast sleeps 5 and is available all year round. And Fenton Hill farm cottages are also lovely, if you're looking for self-catering accommodation.
Our dear friend Tim Ralph recently came to Seahouses to give an account of his fantastic achievement, in being the oldest Briton to summit the highest mountain on each of the world's Continents. He donated the funds raised to local charity, so the least I can do is give a link to his excellent website.
If perhaps you were actually intending to visit Weardale rather than the Northumberland Coast, then you should really stay with our friends Rupert & Jill at Dowfold House. They won a Silver Award at the North-East Tourism Awards 2010, when we won Gold - but we have stayed friends nonetheless. Their place is lovely, and you could find no better base for Teesdale, Weardale, or Durham. But how did you end up here, if you were looking for them?
