I think that Cumbria and Northumberland are probably the most under-rated areas for English golf.
Brilliantly located for golf en route to and from Scotland the scenery is wild and remote, the people friendly and the golf fun and great value.
We played Dunstanburgh when it was a Gem on this site and loved its understated charm. Excellent holiday golf, with the par 3 13th standing out in the memory as an outpost with lovely views of the castle and coastline. Highly recommended - as noted it could be even better with a little work, but definitely worth making the trip.
