Excellent location and very spacious, well furnished house with some lovely homely touches such as bottle of wine and homemade lemon drizzle cake on arrival. The cottage was very well laid out and spacious for our family including a small dog. We particularly enjoyed the pool table and the lovely sunny courtyard and seating area just off the kitchen. Rothbury had a lot of places nearby to explore including the river walk that extended to the back gate of Criagside Estate. We enjoyed visiting the historical sites of Craigside House and Gardens, Brinkburn Priory, Warkworth Castle and Hermitage, Alnwick, Bamburgh Village and Castle as well as walks on Bamburgh beach and a hike to Linhope Spout. Also had a wonderful pamper spa day at Doxford Hall Hotel that included afternoon tea.
