The lounge lounge was a bit on the cool side in march but otherwise pleasant accommodation within walking distance of shops, pubs etc. Although centrally located in the town it wasn't noisy.

A brilliant cottage in a lovely setting. Ideal for visiting the coast, Hadrians wall, the Cheriots, and Kildar Water to mention a few. Plenty of walks locally too with Craigside, Rothbury Terraces and Simonside Hills. Plus a plethora of eating places on our doorstop. Brilliant for dog owners as well. Look forward to visiting in another season.
