Description

Tucked behind the main street of the picturesque village of Rothbury, this delightful Grade II listed, stone built 19th century cottage was formerly the blacksmith cottage of Conway House. Conway Cottage has been recently refurbished to offer all modern facilities desired for contemporary living, yet has carefully retained many of its original features ensuring the property oozes character. An open fire in the lounge guarantees guests receive a warm welcome whatever the season and the cottage is snuggled in an attractive walled courtyard; idyllic for a spot of alfresco dining! Rothbury is found nestled at the foot of the heater clad Simonside and Lordenshaw Hills and 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 walkers and cyclists where the surrounding beautiful countryside can be absorbed. The village is known locally as the ’Gateway to the Northumberland National Park’ where there are several quaint tea rooms, pubs, charming shops and a riverside 18 hole golf course all within a gentle stroll. 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 less than a mile away. The bustling market town of Alnwick, boasts its own dramatic castle, often referred to as ’The Windsor of the North’ and ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!) along with the spectacular ’Alnwick Garden’, with its Grand Cascade Waterfall and restaurant incorporated within the largest tree house in Europe, 15 miles east. The Heritage coastline this area is proud to have acknowledged as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is less than 20 miles away making Conway Cottage an excellent base for exploring north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders

About the local area

The Rothbury and Coquetdale area is dominated by the rugged but beautiful landscape of the Northumberland National Park. Nestled in this rolling moorland you'll find a selection of postcard-pretty villages like Longframlington, Thropton and Sharperton. Rothbury is the biggest of these communities and calls itself the capital of Coquetdale.

The town offers a peaceful haven. The River Coquet meanders through its centre, creating a pleasant walk along the river bank. The High Street boasts a number of traditional independent shops, there is a quieter and gentler pace of life and a selection of country pubs to enjoy a traditional pub lunch or relaxing evening meal.

Just two miles east of the town is Cragside House, Gardens and Estate . An historic home and marvel of Victorian ingenuity - it was the first house in the world to be lit by hydro electricity - with miles of paths running through spectacular rocky and woodland scenery. Today it is managed by the National Trust.

The Lady's Well at nearby Holystone is an ancient attractive well thought to have been constructed by the Romans on the site of a natural spring and is well worth a visit.

Thrunton Woods, Edlingham Castle and Brinkburn Priory are rich in wildlife and the ideal spot for a summer picnic. North of Coquetdale you will find the Breamish Valley with its cold Cheviot streams and gorse-covered hill country cradling the charming villages of Powburn and Ingram.

From Rothbury you can explore the surrounding Simonside Hills and Cheviot Hills and all of Northumberland National Park. Walkers and cyclists will love the spectacular countryside
