Nestled in a traditional mews off the main street in Rothbury, this spacious cottage offers a couple a getaway with a difference and access to major local attractions on foot.
Set on the cusp of the Northumberland National Park is charming Rothbury, an excellent destination for keen walkers whether you have four legs or two. Ideal for couples, this pretty retreat is cosy and comforting with boutique-style interiors, and best of all your waggy-tailed companion can come along too. Discover Rothbury’s many eateries and independent shops, letting Fido take the lead and navigating the serene banks of the River Coquet or venturing into the romantic wilderness of the national park itself.
Lovingly converted into an idyllic couple’s bolthole, you’ll be swept away by the ambience of your accommodation from the moment you step inside and dust down Rover’s paws. Climb the stairs and step into the stylish open-plan living space, cracking open the treats to unwind at leisure by the wood burner. There’s a handy kitchen where you’ll cook up a storm, perching at the unique breakfast bar that has been crafted using vintage beer barrels. Uncork a bottle of wine and dine a deux in the quirky sunroom encircled by exposed stone and views of the garden, or take Rover’s lead and embrace al fresco dining while he plays on the lawn. Back downstairs are two bedrooms, one of which is perfect for an accompanying child.
Whether you are tempted by vast expanses of luscious greenery interspersed by rivers and streams or are lured by the thrill of the sea, you’ll be ideally positioned for experiencing both. The Northumberland Coast is accessible within 17 miles, boasting dog-friendly beaches including Alnmouth 17 miles away and beautiful cliff-top trails studded with the odd historic castle such as Warkworth Castle 18 miles away. Closer to home, Rothbury is well-positioned for walkies, or why not bring along your bikes and pup trailer to explore in style.
