Description

Croft Cottage is a detached, single-storey cottage with outstanding countryside views, set in its own lawned garden in a tranquil setting, close to the edge of the Northumberland National Park. With the owner living on-site, the cottage was completely renovated in 2019 and has generous sized living accommodation with a lovely wood burner for those cooler evenings. Step out of the French doors and sit and admire the lovely views from the patio.
Nearby Rothbury is just over 6 miles away. This friendly and peaceful little market town has a strong community spirit with riverside walks, independent shops, pubs, cafés and is home to Cragside House and Gardens, a beautiful National Trust property, well worth a day’s visit. The energetic may wish to walk up the Simonside Hills or explore over to Kielder Water for the mountain biking or water sports. For cyclists bringing their bikes, a lock up bike store is available on request and is just a 4-minute walk from the cottage. Being close to the Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park, the skies at Croft Cottage can be clear and bright should you wish to partake in a little star gazing while staying here.

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
