| Events in Chathill | 10 Places to Stay

Approximately nine miles north of Alnwick in Northumberland, in north east England, is the little rural hamlet of Chathill. It is situated three miles inland of the Northumberland coastline, which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The area is home to several seabird reserves and welcomes increasing numbers of tourists each year. Chathill lies on the main road to the coast near to the fishing village of Seahouses and is where many stay as a base. For those visiting there is a working harbour port and active fishing as well as regular boat trips which run from there to the Farne Islands to see the sea birds and seal colonies. Despite its small size and hamlet status, Chathill has a mainline railway station that between 1898 and 1951 was the southwestern terminus of the North Sunderland Railway. It remained independent until the line was closed. It then formed the standard gauge railway link to Seahouses on the East Coast Main Line. The little hamlet is also home to Preston Tower, a pele tower which is located nearby. The rural nature of the area offers a wide selection of accommodation in farms, cottages and bed and breakfast properties. There are also a number of public houses. Residents are either farmers or fishermen or work in the tourism or service industries, or commute to the larger towns of Newcastle, Berwick-upon-Tweed or Alnwick.
