My family of four will be arriving Newcastle June 6 and departing June 16. We are planning to do self catering, preferably in a small village or town near the coast. We will have a car and are interested in castles, Holy Island, walks/hikes and Hadrian's wall. We would love to stay somewhere that has at least a couple of good pubs we can walk to in the evenings. We might do 7 nights one place and move to Hadrian's wall area.
