Cornhill is in England - just. It is the first and last village and is ideally positioned for exploring the beautiful Northumberland countryside It is now a peaceful spot, situated on the banks of the River Tweed, surrounded by rolling fields and bordered by the Cheviot Hills to the south. However, the surrounding countryside reflects the turbulence of times past, with historic castles at Norham, Ford and Etal, and the haunting Battlefield of Flodden, where in 1513 the invading Scots fought a bloody battle against the defending English.
Documented walks and cycle routes are available from the Village Shop, which is situated in the heart of the village. As well as a well-stocked shop, this family-run business has an internet cafe, and supplies delicious take-away snacks. The ancient Collingwood Arms Hotel is an excellent place to stay while you explore the surrounding countryside.
