A visitors book would have been useful to see what other visitors enjoyed or had found interesting in the area. Also recommendations for places to eat would have been good. The housekeeper said it wasn't a cleanable item so had been removed however that seemed odd considering there were cushions, books, leaflets, maps and a fabric sofa. A dustpan aRead morend brush would be useful too. We really enjoyed our stay, a lovely property in a lovely location. Thank you. Hide

The far -reaching views and tranquillity make this cottage a wonderful base from which to explore Kielder Forest, many castles and the coast. The house is very spacious and comfortable, well- equipped and with homely, decorative touches. We very much enjoyed our week there.

The cottage has a fabulous view over the coquet valley and the shared lawned grounds are very well kept. In a very quiet spot at the end of a lane however it was a steep climb from Rothbury to the cottage. The cottage was well heated and cosy.

This is a very attractive cottage in a glorious location. Getting up on a morning and looking out at the early morning mist in the valley below was a real treat. The cottage was spacious, comfortable and clean when we arrived. The walk into Rothbury is pleasant, but the return up the hill is challenging.

The house has serious issues with its stench. We nicknamed it the broccoli house because of the smell and every day we returned from a trip, we dreaded going back to the house to put up with it. By midweek, the constant rain and the stench in the house proved too much and we left 2 days early. We spoke to the owner about the problems while we were Read moreaway and she has been through the mill with the house. They are longstanding issues which she either thought was fixed or not as bad as they are. 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.
