This traditional log cabin, built and furnished in a traditional style is the perfect retreat for families and couples. Close to bustling market towns and the city of Newcastle.

Reivers Cottage itself is a stylish, warm and cosy Scandinavian style log cabin with open plan living area complete with log burning stove, fitted kitchen, dining table and seating area. The cabin sleeps up to four guests across two bedrooms, one double bedroom and one with twin beds.

Reivers Cottage is situated in Alwinton which sits on the border of the Northumberland national park, within walking distance of the local village pub which sells good home cooked food. There is another pub also within 5 minutes walk from the cottage. The cottage looks on to the beautiful Harbottle Forest and near the banks of the River Coquet.

The Northumberland National Park is famed for its wide variety of rare animals. Some animals that visitors may be able to spot include rare birds, otters, red squirrels as well as deer and the Chillingham Wild Cattle.

Such an unspoiled landscape provides a haven for wildlife. Black Grouse can be heard over the hills in early spring, and even the rare Osprey is a known summer visitor. Otters now are no longer a rarity along the length of the River Coquet and a glimpse of one of these elusive creatures can remain with you a lifetime.

And if all that peace and quiet gets too much - You are only a short drive away from thriving market towns, such as Alnwick and Morpeth. For the die-hard shopaholic, Newcastle upon Tyne offers fantastic shops and world famous nightlife.

Alwinton is about 18 miles (29 km) to the west of Alnwick and 10 miles north of Rothbury. Alwinton village lies at the head of the Coquet valley, on the edge of both the Otterburn Army Training Estate and the Northumberland National Park, roughly 10 miles (16 km) from the border with Scotland. A road continues past Alwinton into the Cheviot Hills where it terminates at the ancient Roman encampment of Chew Green.

Northumberland is also home to more castles and fortified houses than any other region in England. Including that at nearby Alnwick - Recently made famous as the location for the Harry Potter movies, as well as the recently refurbished Alnwick Garden. Then there’s imposing Bamburgh, Warkworth and the magnificently perched cliff-top ruins of Dunstanburgh castle.

So whether you’re looking for an escape from the city for a week or two, want to go exploring holiday with your children, or would prefer a romantic holiday for two in beautiful surroundings, you can have a holiday you will certainly enjoy right here at Low Alwinton in the spectacular Northumberland countryside.

This cottage accepts one well behaved dog.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

No welcome pack . Be aware the shop is miles away. Minimum equipment, take EVERYTHING with you inc all condiments. Take a torch during the dark nights. Be aware garden is not secure if your dog is small.

Excellent location. We could easily have filled two weeks with activities. Very quiet and perfect for our young family. The village pub does good quality homemade food and are very welcoming.

Had a nice stay, looks a lot bigger on photos. The bath was fab with lovely hot water all the time. Had a lovely stay, suitable for family of 3 but no more really. Met the lovely family that live in the farm house that helped me out when I lost my husband and the key!!! Had a gorgeous meal in the local pub real home made food.

Lovely little cottage in a very remote part of Northumberland which made it very peaceful. All our needs were catered for within the cottage and there were plenty of lovely walks, forests and places to visit nearby. Would definitely recommend it to people.

Nice cosy cottage.

Reviewed by Katie B

The cottage was very cosy, we can't wait to come again. Wish we stayed for a full week instead of 3 nights! Very clean, also being a dog friendly cottage it did not smell of dog. Very happy, bed was lovely and the bath was huge! Loved the cottage!! Very cosy and had everything you need, the bath is huge! I liked the closed off garden, maRead morede you feel you had your privacy. The location of the cottage is surrounded by beautiful scenery, there are also walks from your doorstep if don't want to go far. The location of the cottage isn't too far from villages or places like Sea Houses and Alnwick. I would highly recommend people visit Cragside, located near Rothbury which is around a 20 minute drive from the cottage. Cragside allows dogs on the grounds, was lovely seeing the gardens and walking the grounds. Rothbury has also got many pubs and shops, with some nice bakery's. We are definitely coming again!! Hide

Basic but adequate and comfortable cottage in a lovely location with beautiful views. Enough room for 2 adults and 2 young children. Good base for exploring Northumberland with child friendly walks on the doorstep. Three Wheat Heads in Thropton, good food and very family friendly. Also, The Black Bull in Wooler.

Great little holiday cottage in a fantastic location for all things Northumberland. The wood burner made it cosy even on a freezing late December night and to walk out of the door straight into the silent countryside was just fantastic for seeing the incredible clear night skies. Well-equipped (although a shower or shower attachment would be usefulRead more) but the bath is deep and big, lovely. There's no phone signal but there's free Wifi if you don't want to be entirely cut off from the world. Hide

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.
