Cramlington - Newcastle's peaceful neighbour close to the sea

The Northumberland village of Cramlington is the perfect vantage point for visits to the thundering nightspots of Nearby Newcastle, as well as the county's beautiful windswept coastline. The village itself dates back to the 12th century although today it is largely modern after a big expansion programme in the 1960s. Cramlington offers access to lovely countryside with the unique Northumberlandia landscape sculpted country park right on the doorstep. And of course the most famous sculpture of all: Antony Gormley's iconic Angel of the North, is under half an hour down the road. Like adventure? There's quad biking at The Quadfather in Cramlington plus Delta Force Paintball Newcastle scarily close by - beware the Zombies' crypt!

Popular Newcastle-upon-Tyne is an easy 20 minute drive away with culture lovers well catered for with the cutting-edge BALTIC Centre of Contemporary Art and the striking silver Sage Gateshead concert hall. Shop in trendy Jesmond and stick around to bust out some moves come nightfall.
