Ashington is one of the largest towns in Northumberland and is located in the Woodhorn and coastal region of the county. The town offers a good range of independent and national retailers with a market day being held every Tuesday. Ashington is also well served by pubs and cafes and boasts a spectacular new sport and leisure centre. At one time Ashington was known as the largest mining village in the world and, although the mines closed in 1988, Ashington is justifiably proud of its history which is remembered at the nearby Woodhorn Museum. Ashington has two country parks, Wansbeck Riverside Country Park and the Queen Elizabeth II Country Park at Woodhorn.
Ashington also offers a pleasant drive to some of Northumberland's most spectacular coastal towns and villages including Amble, Craster, Seahouses and Bamburgh. The market town of Morpeth with access to the East Coast railway line is just 6 miles away and Newcastle City Centre with its vibrant Quayside, nightlife, theatre and fabulous shopping just 18 miles away. Ashington is also well served by bus routes to and from Northumberland and North Tyneside.
