Description

Arriving at West Hills Lodge, the first impression is of the stunning views and the peaceful location of this lovely holiday home, which is only a mile’s walk into the pretty market town of Rothbury. With large arch windows to soak in the views, a cosy and comforting wood burner set in a stone inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings and a lovely spa bath to relax in, visitors will love the atmosphere in and around this Grade II former cart shed. If you have never fed an Alpaca before now is your chance, with the food provided by the owners you and the children are welcome to feed these friendly animals which are kept on this working beef and sheep farm. You can also purchase fresh eggs, beef or lamb. For wildlife lovers, the keen-eyed will spot a range of wildlife including hare, red squirrels, roe deer and a host of birds, including wax wings and sparrowhawks. The large garden is ideal for relaxing in and just peacefully appreciating all the nature around you.

With cycle rides and walks straight from the door, the location is ideal whether you just want a leisurely stroll into the town to visit a friendly pub, have a spot of lunch at a café or wander on an evening and have an evening meal. More serious walkers will enjoy the Simonside Hills and valleys, with glorious dark skies being on the edge of the International Dark Sky Park, there really is something here for everyone. The property is adjoining a 2000-year-old iron age hillfort with panoramic views of Coquetdale.

Cragside House (National Trust) is only 2 miles away with plenty of quirky inventions and stunning gardens, something here for all ages to explore. Alnwick is only a half hour drive, where a trip to explore the very famous castle featured in Harry Potter and Downton Abbey shouldn’t be missed. It is easy to travel over to Hadrian’s Wall or onto the Northumberland National Park over to Kielder from here. The coast is as easy drive where miles of unspoilt sandy beaches make a lovely day out with plenty of historic castles and friendly villages to explore. Shops, pubs and restaurant 1 mile.

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
