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
