Nestled in a traditional mews off the main street in Rothbury, this spacious cottage offers a couple a getaway with a difference and access to major local attractions on foot.
This spacious, quirky and characterful property makes a relaxing holiday retreat for two. Set in the heart of the picturesque market town of Rothbury, this beautifully renovated cottage is full of charm, with plenty of personal touches including exposed brick walls, a welcoming wood burner and a delightful orangery-style summerhouse with feature stone walls and picture windows. Close to the eastern edge of the impressive Northumberland National Park, this fabulous property offers an idyllic and memorable getaway.
Entering this cosy and imaginatively designed property, the welcoming hallway leads upstairs to the main living space. The pretty open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner features a central breakfast bar dividing the space. The warm and relaxing lounge is ideal for snuggling up together in front of the wood burner and enjoying a movie on the Smart TV. The barrel-festooned breakfast bar is perfect for grabbing a quick snack, and the fully equipped kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. A couple of steps lead from the lounge into the light-filled orangery-style summerhouse overlooking the garden where you can enjoy a leisurely meal or a morning coffee. The cottage also has a stylish bathroom and two tastefully decorated bedrooms. The light and airy double bedroom has plenty of storage space, and a step leads down from the hall to the small single bedroom which is ideal for a child and features a high ceiling adding to the impression of space and light. From the summerhouse, climb four steps up to the garden which features a raised lawn, a chiminea and outdoor furniture.
