The cottage was easy to find and exactly as described and pictured. Hotspur cottage is a lovely, well appointed cottage in beautiful countryside. The fields next to the cottage have hares. The walk around Fontburn reservoir is recommended though is rather difficult underfoot.

Lovely cottage, very well equipped with lovely views and very comfortable. Very clean bathroom and kitchen. Particularly liked the key safe so we did not need to take the key out with us every day. Lovely large bed and en suite with both bath and shower and well equipped kitchen. Sofas really comfortable. Well situated cottage just outside RothburyRead more. Close to the coast with lovely walking particularly Dunstanburgh and Warkworth/Alnmouth. Also close to Simonside hills with, again, good walking. Plenty of good castles, particularly Bamburgh. Great food at Wheat Heads Inn, Thropton. Hide

Very good, warm and comfy. Immaculate. Kitchen, bathroom and bedroom first class. Hotspur cottage is very comfortable with excellent central heating, a good very wide bed and two good sofas which are cloth upholstered and not the dreaded "leather look". Good open views across the golf course and river towards Rothbury. The large living/kitchen areaRead more has creaky floors which are very noticeable when first entering the cottage but don't affect the overall impression that this holiday let is very good. Hide

Situated in a lovely spot with a short walk to town. Everything was clean, tidy and very well equipped. We stayed 4 nights this time and it just went too quickly. Everything you could want was in the cottage. A welcome bottle of wine awaited us with tea and biscuits. In the surrounding fields lambs were frolicking and their antics kept us amused.

A fabulous bakery with lovely freshly baked food. The Turks Head was a great place to take our dog who was welcomed in and given biscuits by the staff. Lots of dog friendly beautiful beaches within a short drive and of course the lovely riverside walk near to where we were staying. We hope to start planning our next break soon. We just cannot get enough of this area and the fabulous accommodation. Thank you - we totally love the area and are looking forward to planning our next time away. This was our third break with your company. We cannot fault the places we have stayed at so far. Hide

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
