Dating back to the 1850’s, this characterful cottage with tall sash windows and high ceilings was one of the original buildings in Rothbury. You are at the heart of Northumberland’s countryside, with vast forests, meadows and moorland surrounding the town. Stepping inside you have the spacious living room which is open plan with the dining area. There is a gas stove in the hearth, bathing the room in a warm glow on a chilly evening. The adjoining kitchen is modern and well-equipped for creating all of your favourite home cooked meals. There is also a walk-in shower room on this floor. A wide staircase leads you up from the entrance hallway to two well presented bedrooms. There is also a separate toilet up on this floor for added convenience.
The cottage is set in an elevated position in this charming, historic market town. Only a 5-minute walk from a choice of pubs, most serving food, as well as a couple of restaurants and tea rooms. Cyclists will love that the Sandstone Way Cycle Path runs outside, down from the Scottish Borders to the Peak District National Park. The location is ideal as you can leave your car behind and enjoy the local facilities and indeed, take a walk right from the door up the Simonside Hills.
Rothbury is only 12 miles from Alnwick, making a day trip to the historic town to see the castle, gardens and cobbled streets a short journey away. It is less than a mile to Cragside House and Gardens which sits on the edge of the village, a marvellous National Trust site with something for all ages. No trip to Northumberland would be complete without a day trip up to the Northumbrian Heritage Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where miles of sandy beaches and historic castles await. Or travel over to Hadrian’s Wall and explore the remains of the Roman Forts, the wall itself or visit The Sill. Of course Northumberland also has the fabulous highly acclaimed Dark Sky Park around Kielder, all within easy reach of Rothbury. This friendly and diverse county has been voted ’The best county to visit’ in the British Travel Awards, and you can be sure of a warm welcome around the county.

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
