Beautifully presented cottage nestled in a quiet lane off the High Street and close to the riverbank for sunset strolls. A perfect retreat away from the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life.

This beautifully presented stone-built cottage is tucked away down a quiet lane and is the perfect retreat for a couple or small family to get away from it all in the Northumberland countryside. Take sunset strolls along the river bank, roam breathtaking moorland scenery and discover the wilds of Northumberland National Park.

Hang up your coats and kick off muddy boots as you enter this warm and welcoming cottage. The cosy lounge/diner is an inviting space to spend a sociable evening with plush seating and a warming wood burner set within a wonderful inglenook fireplace. To the rear of the building, a small but perfectly formed kitchen has everything you need to whip up a delicious meal or prepare your morning coffee which can be enjoyed sitting on the shared courtyard's garden bench. Upstairs, two lovely bedrooms await with inviting beds covered in sumptuous soft linins. A stylish modern shower room completes this charming property.

Set in the traditional Northumberland village of Rothbury, a wide range of independent shops, friendly pubs, cafes, and restaurants are all within easy reach. The village is also home to the UK’s first-ever ‘smart’ home, Cragside House and Gardens, and there’s even a picturesque golf course within walking distance (0.5 miles). Head into the Simonside Hills (5 miles) for dramatic moorland scenery, lots of wildlife, and views over the town. The edge of Northumberland’s National Park is 6 miles away, where you will discover a stunning landscape crisscrossed by numerous walking and cycling trails with something to suit all abilities. Alnwick Castle is just under 12 miles away, as are the famous Alnwick Gardens offering 12 acres of meandering landscaped gardens home to the world's largest Tai Haku cherry orchard, a ‘Grand Cascade’ comprising 120 water jets and the world’s largest treehouse restaurant. For a day out at the seaside, the stunning sandy beach in Alnmouth is 16 miles away.
