Description

Quails Nest is a charming, detached cottage situated in the picturesque hamlet of Edlingham. Constructed in 2018, the accommodation is immaculately presented throughout and all conveniently located on ground floor level. The open plan living space enjoys a bright and airy ambience with superb far-reaching rural views, and both double bedrooms have the convenience of en-suites.
Edlingham is nestled equidistant between Rothbury to the west and the historic market town of Alnwick to the east; both being around 6 miles away. Edlingham has its own medieval castle and 11th-century church in its grounds. This beautiful location is regularly used in TV and film sets; it’s the location of the Hobbit latest promotional film poster and some scenes for the ITV drama series, Beowulf, were also filmed here.
A short drive west brings you to Rothbury, snuggled at the foot of the Simonside and Lordenshaw Hills. It straddles the banks of the trout and salmon-rich River Coquet, where a licence and permit for fishing can be obtained locally. This is a popular destination for cyclists and walkers and is known as the ‘Gateway to the Northumberland National Park, there are many amenities available including tea rooms, pubs, shops and a riverside 18-hole golf course. The National Trust site of Cragside, once home to Lord Armstrong and the first home to be lit by hydro-electricity, sits within 1000 acres and is an interesting visitor attraction only 4 miles west from Quails Nest.
The bustling market town of Alnwick boasts its own dramatic castle, which is home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film academy for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) has a wide array of facilities, 6 miles east. Visit Alnwick Garden with its spectacular Cascade Waterfall and restaurant incorporated within the largest tree house in Europe.
Quails Nest is an excellent choice for those seeking a tranquil base with lovely rural views and gives easy access to explore the beautiful 20-mile stretch of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the wild and lonely expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 5 miles. Beach 10½ miles.

About the local area

Alnwick is in the heart of Northumberland, famous for its unspoilt beauty, and is one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in England - with long sandy beaches, quiet friendly villages, the Simonside and Cheviot hills, well preserved medieval Castles, and gardens.

There are numerous Stately Homes in the area including the fantastic Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland and often referred to as "The Windsor of the north". The medieval market town originally prospered as a staging post, being only a day's ride from Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north and Newcastle upon Tyne in the south. It still retains many of its cobbled streets, narrow alleys and fine stone buildings which now house a range of specialist shops and family businesses as wells as some of what once totaled over 50 inns.

Alnwick Castle, the home of the Duke of Northumberland, provides a wonderful day out for all the family. It has magnificent spacious grounds designed by Capability Brown, domineering medieval towers, a 14th century dungeon, beautiful State Rooms and there are various museums covering the region's military and archaeological history. Next to the Castle is the spectacular Alnwick Garden where you can experience The Grand Cascade with its many weirs and fountains, The Ornamental Garden with more than 15,000 plants, The Rose Garden of walkways heavily scented with climbing and shrub roses, clematis and honeysuckle, and there are many 'secret' gardens where you can sit amongst the pergolas, fruit trees and individual pools. Because it is a continually developing garden with major projects always underway, it provides something new for those that return time after time.

The Alnwick countryside is also a great area for walking, short and long hikes, cycling, fishing, and in fact every kind of country pursuit. South east lies the valleys and heather topped expanses of Coquetdale and the Simonside Hills around Rothbury - a haven for hillwalkers and cyclists and a gateway to the Northumberland National Park.

The coastline of the Alnwick region consists of over 20 spectacular miles of golden sands, rocky outcrops and sand dunes which provide fun days out for all the family and peaceful beach strolls along the sweeping sands of Druridge Bay and Cresswell. Coastal villages include the lively harbour town of Amble, beautiful Warkworth with its magnificent castle, and picturesque Alnmouth, home of the oldest golf course in Britain.
