Castle Farm Cottage is an attractive single-storey wing of Castle Farm within the picture perfect hamlet of Alnham. Converted to an excellent standard the accommodation is mainly on one level. The living/dining/kitchen space is open plan with large hemmel windows to enhance its bright and airy ambience. Both the double bedroom and twin bedroom are immaculately presented and the contemporary bathroom has the added convenience of a spacious shower too.
Castle Farm Cottage enjoys a tranquil, rural position and is surrounded by stunning countryside. Overlooking the dramatic landscape across the Northumberland National Park, this is an idyllic spot to rest and refresh. Alnham is a welcoming hamlet situated only six miles from the village of Whittingham and two miles from Netherton. The picturesque village of Rothbury, found nestled at the foot of the Simonside and Lordenshaw Hills, straddles the banks of the trout and salmon-rich River Coquet, where a licence and permit for fishing can be obtained locally, and is a popular destination for walkers and cyclists, nine miles down the Coquet valley.
Located within the "International Dark Sky Park", the property is a fantastic place to catch a glimpse of a meteor shower, track satellites, especially the International Space Station, look at the planets of our own solar system or go further into space (’where no man has gone before!’) and view star clusters or far-off galaxies. The owners’ are happy to provide specialist equipment, including an astronomical telescope, high magnification binoculars and star charts, for wannabe astronomers. Darkest Northumberland, with its remarkably low light pollution, is simply the best place to view our Milky Way, the constellations, and when at its best, the Aurora Borealis. Shop 6 miles, pub 2 mile and restaurant 9 miles.

About the local area

Rothbury offers many facilities including several quaint tea-rooms, pubs, charming shops and a riverside 18-hole golf course. The 1,000 acres estate of Cragside, once home to Lord Armstrong, and the first home in the world to be lit by hydro-electricity is an interesting National Trust visitor attraction. The bustling market town of Alnwick, dominated by its majestic castle is often referred to as ‘The Windsor of the North’ and is the ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!). The Alnwick Garden, with its spectacular Grand Cascade Waterfall and restaurant incorporated within the largest tree house in Europe, is also a popular tourist attraction, 14 miles east. A friendly greeting regularly awaits guests in the market town of Wooler, snuggled at the foot of the Cheviot Hills and where the challenging route of the St Cuthbert’s Way delights cyclists and walkers, 14 miles north. The Heritage coastline this area is proud to have recognised as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is less than 20 miles east making Castle Farm Cottage an excellent base for exploring the many delights across north Northumberland and gives easy access to the Scottish Borders too.
