Quiet location, perfect with a dog. Be aware, 10 miles to nearest shops. Mobile signal & WiFi extremely poor in the property & surrounding area. Would appear to depend on your network as the property is in a small cluster of properties and other residents were able to use their mobiles.

Great cottage, in a gorgeous spot with a lovely view beyond the garden to the river and a bridge. Surprisingly spacious, with a large living room, kitchen and master bedroom, and warmed up quickly. The enclosed garden was great for our old dog, so we were able to leave the doors open all day for him to enjoy the sunshine. Even though winter storms Read morehave meant some forests have been temporarily closed, there were still lovely walks from the door, including a short one to the local pub. Hide

The cottage is ideally located for exploring the Northumberland countryside. Cottage is comfortable & homely - just needs a little attention to detail/maintenance. Had a relaxing time & enjoyed great hospitality at The Rose & Thistle.

The cottage is beautifully situated about 10 minutes west of Rothbury, surrounded by wonderful hills and moorlands. The cottage itself was very clean and well appointed, sleeping the five of us in comfort.

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.
