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 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.
