This was a lovely cottage with ample space for our family and with good facilities. The views from the living room and dining room balcony stretch across the dale to the opposite hills. Unusually, the living space and kitchen is on the top floor and the bedrooms underneath - this means the better views are to be had from the living room and dining room - makes sense really. The cottage is semi detached but we did not see or hear the neighbours all week. It is well equipped for staying a full week, there is ample hot water and the sauna is a nice addition. Most important - it was spotlessly clean. The cottage is built on the side of a hill - there is a steep way to it by road or a shorter path through the garden onto a public footpath - torches will be needed in darker months. It's a five minute walk into Rothbury where there are enough interesting shops and pubs to pass quite a bit of time. The Turk's Head has a good value food - the cheaper 'light bites' on its menu are surprisingly large. The co-op has all the essentials, additionally there are bakers, a butchers with amazing sausages, several cafes, an art and craft shop run by a group of very talented people and much more. There are regular buses to Newcastle and Alnwick which, at £13 for a full day family ticket, make driving to these places unnecessary. We spent most of our time relaxing in the cottage and in Rothbury but we also visited Cragside - an estate and house 2 miles away. I recommend this, as I do Alnmouth for an unspoilt beach.

Cottage was very comfortable and clean with lovely views of the river valley and surrounding hills. It was also very convenient for the local shops and eating places. Cragside is a must for everyone as is Bamburgh and Alnwick castles. We would have liked to visit the Farne Islands but unfortunately didn't have time. Holy Island is also worth a visit. The Three Wheat Heads at Thropton was a very good place to eat. My husband enjoyed fishing at Caistron Trout Fishery. It was the first time that we have visited Northumberland and we thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful area, so have only used your services once, but we were very happy with the service and would use you again.
