Perched on a slight incline to afford stunning views across open countryside and Rock Hall is Plantation Cottage; an attractive detached property standing proudly in a magnificent setting. Once the local Shepherd’s farmhouse of the prestigious Rock estate, this gorgeous cottage has been newly renovated throughout and transformed to provide self catering accommodation completed to a superior standard. The stylish sitting room has the comfort of a wood burning stove nestled within a large Inglenook fireplace; idyllic to gaze into and watch the flames dance after a day exploring the beautiful  landscape that surrounds Plantation Cottage. Also on the ground floor is a very well equipped kitchen which leads to a separate dining room where the views can also be enjoyed. On the first floor are three immaculately presented double bedrooms, the master having en suite facilities, and a contemporary family bathroom too ensuring Plantation Cottage is a suitable choice for the gathering of family and friends or for those couples seeking something rather special.... Plantation Cottage is well placed for easy access to the sought after Northumbrian coastline; being only 7 miles north east of Alnwick and around 5 miles from the gorgeous stretches of golden sandy beaches at Newton by the Sea and Embleton. Watch the fishing boats return with their daily catch in the pretty harbour at the friendly fishing village of Craster, renowned for its oak smoked kippers and salmon, 6 miles away. Plantation Cottage is situated close to Shepherd’s Cottage (CC316029), Steward’s Cottage (CC316025), Rock Farmhouse (CC316011), Rock Moor House (CC315001) and The Potting Shed (CC316040) which can all be booked independently or together to accommodate the gathering of family and friends.

About the local area

Enjoy spectacular cliff top walks leading to the 14th century ruins of the atmospheric Dunstanburgh Castle and absorb the invigorating sea air and listen to the dramatic waves crash against the shoreline... The historic market town of Alnwick, with its quaint cobbled streets, offers an abundance of restaurants, shops, tea rooms, a cinema/playhouse and modern leisure centre with indoor swimming only 7 miles inland. Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts!) and Alnwick Gardens, with the grand cascade waterfall and boasting the largest tree house in Europe are popular visitor attractions. The welcoming village of Beadnell, with its own magnificent stretch of sandy bay and where many water sports enthusiasts indulge is only 8 miles and a further 2 miles is the traditional fishing port of Seahouses where boat trips to the Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, depart regularly from its harbour, No visit to this stunning coastline is complete without a trip to the prestigious village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic  fortress and where Holy Island can be seen from its wild expanse of unspoilt seashore.
