warm comfortable cottage
Lovely cottage. Attractive, well furnished & presented, & with everything you'd need. Comfortable & warm (weather was cold!) & roomier than expected. Bottle of red wine on arrival was a good start , and very helpful owner.
Plenty of local pubs with OK food, and an excellent local butcher. Lots of good walking & history in area. All in all a good stay.
Elegant cottage in a great location
The cottage is spacious and nicely furnished. It is located right in the middle of the town, close to lovely , independent shops but despite the central location it is very quiet. The courtyard is small with high walls so there is not much natural light in the house but this got me out to enjoy the splendid Northumberland coast and hills. The owner was welcoming and helpful.
The cottage was very clean and comfortable with everything needed for a lovely holiday
The cottage in the lovely village of Rothbury was ideally situated in center of the bustling village.
The scenery in Northumberland was absolutely beautiful with places to see within short drives such as Alnwick Castle and gardens, Bamburgh Castle in its lovely coastal setting, and Cragside which was very close.
There was a good choice of places to eat locally.
Great Place to stay
Great quiet accommodation in the centre of town close to everything. Cottage was very comfortable and clean with top range amenities. Lots of walks nearby and a fascinating area to explore with its ruins and castles. Check out Edlingham and Brinkburn Priory. Thanks Peter and Sue. John and Dianne from Oz.
Thanks John and Diana for your kind comments. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels. Best wishes, Peter & Sue
