If you love diving then you will love Northumberland! The Farne Islands are rated as one of the UK's top ten diving sites with numerous wrecks to explore as well as a whole host of wildlife to spot including over 4000 grey seals! Dive charter boats operate from Seahouses so even the not so experienced diver can enjoy this truly unique experience.
If you prefer to stay above water then why not try out some canoeing or kayaking at Kielder Water and Forest Park where they also offer sailing and waterskiing on the largest manmade lake in Northern Europe! Or you could head out to the coast and try the exhilarating sport of kite surfing or the slightly more relaxing activity of sailing, a great way to see the coastline from a different angle.
All these water sports offer you the chance to explore the coastlines and waterways of Northumberland that you wouldn't see from just walking or cycling. You can start searching for your perfect holiday cottage by clicking on `Cottages suitable for Watersports'. All these cottages are within 20km of great watersports opportunities.
