Description

This charming, semi-detached, spacious property is ideal for couples. Converted from a former coach house, it is attached to the owner’s original farmhouse which dates back to 1820. Overlooking open countryside towards the stunning Northumberland National Park, Plover Cottage offers well presented and attractive accommodation in a tranquil setting. This delightful cottage enjoys a rural aspect situated on a working farm near the friendly hamlet of Sharperton, which is nestled within the wild and beautiful Coquet Valley. The picture windows in the living room enhance the views in this bright, spacious room and the cosy wood burner is perfect after a day exploring the surrounding countryside.
A charming sitting area to the front is a real sun trap, or move your seats on to the large lawned area to the front should you wish. Fly fishing for brown trout, sea trout and salmon along a private stretch of the River Coquet can be arranged directly with the owner for two rods. Ramblers and cyclists will enjoy discovering the many bridle ways and footpaths which surround the property. Beach 23 miles. Shop 6 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

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
