This lovely property based in the Northumberland village of Rothbury  will provide you with wonderful panoramic views, looking out across the beautiful Coquetdale Valley.

If you like walking, there are plenty of both long and shorter walks close by and some great cycle-ways. The village itself boasts a range of activities and amenities, including a scenic golf course, river fishing and walks and of course, the must-visit National Trust-owned, historic Cragside House and beautiful Gardens. You will also find a fantastic range of independent shops, pubs, restaurants, art galleries and gift shops, not to mention the ice cream parlour for a tasty holiday treat! This welcoming property in Rothbury offers one of the most breath-taking views in the area across the Coquetdale Valley towards the Simonside Hills, within the Northumberland National Park.

The reverse-level property is located in an elevated position in the village and is set over three floors with access to the front door from the driveway down a set of stone steps (care must be taken). You enter the property on the ground floor and into a porch where you can hang coats and leave your walking boots. Off the hallway there is a utility room with a washing machine and drying area and on the other side of the hallway there is a separate WC. Three steps lead you up to the first floor and into the lounge/diner with panoramic views where you can relax on the two comfortable sofas in front of the wood burner, and for your entertainment, there is a Smart TV. In the dining area you can dine in together gazing out at the views from the dining table in front of sliding doors with access to the balcony. Also, on this floor is the well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Heading downstairs, to the lower ground floor you will find the three bedrooms, a sauna and the bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC. There are two spacious double bedrooms and a bunk bedroom with a door which leads out into the patio and garden areas. For a truly relaxing end to your day, why not treat yourself to a sauna with two-tier seating that you can all enjoy during your stay.

Outside, you can enjoy a drink on the balcony with its own table and chairs, or you can relax and enjoy a BBQ on the lower level patio area, also with an outdoor table and chairs. The large, natural garden is full of mature trees and shrubs and perfect for a family game of hide-and-seek and bird watching. For the more adventurous there is a stile at the bottom of a wild, steep garden which joins a footpath which leads into the village. Otherwise, for the less adventurous you can access the same footpath by going up the steps to road, turn left and there is a stile on your left before you reach the corner. There is parking for one car on the drive and a second car can park on the street in front of the property, subject to availability.

A comfortable and very enjoyable stay at Simonside View (2 adults, 2 teenagers). It is well equipped and beds were very comfortable. The spa was a lovely bonus. Balcony with a beautiful view of Simonside Hills and a good garden with ample seating and BBQ. Rothbury is a nice riverside town with decent amenities and a good base for activities close bRead morey (walking, Cragside) and slightly further afield (great beaches, castles, Hadrian's Wall, wildlife boat trips, Lindisfarne). We loved our holiday! Hide

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.
