I'd like to keep it a secret as Hotspur cottage in Rothbury is so lovely but I will share. This is a very pretty little modern cottage in a stunningly beautiful location overlooking the Coquet river valley with sheep as your nearest neighbours.

Nice small and cosy cottage. Well suited to a couple, and on one level, though parking is lower you can offload near the door. Kitchen/living area with veiws up the valley. Has country feel without being isolated. Good selection of shops in Rothbury plus a small Co-oP. Would recommend, it's our second visit.

Excellent perfect for a couple and a small dog. Really comfortable and well equipped. Loved the bed, very spacious and comfy. We will definitely book again. Just be aware of the road it can be quiet busy so not great for dog walking and the turning out of the driveway is a bit tight. But overall a great place and location.

Rothbury is a lovely town with all the amenities you'd ever need, and the cottage is just a mile from it's centre. The cottage is fairly comfortable, spacious and quiet. I had only three small complaints, 1: Could do with black out blinds/curtains in the bedroom as long days make sleep difficult. 2: A washing line to dry beach things or even a washRead more would be great as it has a great position for sun and a breeze. 3: Bathroom with shower and bath made the toilet area extremely cramped.

Lovely cosy cottage, very comfortable with great views. There is limited outside space and no enclosed garden for a dog, which didn't bother us at this time of year but would have done if we wanted to sit outside. Rothbury itself is very nice but too far to walk to the pub, or out to eat, at night.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
