The property

Otterburn 5 miles.

Set in the small village of Rochester in the heart of the Northumberland National Park, is this charming stone property, Petty Knowes Cottage.

The property has been renovated to a high standard, whilst still managing to retain some original stone walls in the snug to add a wealth of character.

Be welcomed into a sitting room which has been lovingly decorated with a feature colourful wall and has plenty of seating for curling up with your loved one and unwinding in front of the 42" TV.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner which has all the necessary appliances for rustling up some delicious meals and benefits from a washer/dryer so you don't have to bring your whole wardrobe with you during your trip.

Gin lovers will delight in visiting this property's snug room which the owners have renovated into 'The Gin Room' and is the most characterful part of the cottage with its stone walls and sheepskin day bed.

Once the evening draws to a close, retire to the king-size bedroom which has its own multi fuel stove for those colder evenings, as well as a TV so you don't have to move to watch your favourite morning shows whilst relaxing in the soft Egyptian cotton bedding.

There is a bathroom with the choice of a bath or shower over and benefitting from Egyptian cotton towels and underfloor heating.

To the rear of the cottage is a private decking area which comes with outdoor furniture so you can dine alfresco or simply enjoy a refreshing drink whilst watching the sunset.

Guests are also welcome to use the owner’s hot tub during their stay, adding a spot of luxury to your romantic getaway.

Situated in the heart of the Northumberland National Park, you can explore the rolling countryside either by walking or hiking, perfect to take you dogs along to stretch their legs.

This area is also popular for cyclists and is an easy drive to Hadrian's Wall and Kielder Forest.

Make sure you get involved with some watersporting activities at any one of the nearby lakes and rivers.

The village of Bellingham comes with its very own golf course, ideal for beginners and professionals alike.

Petty Knowes Cottage is an excellent choice for a relaxing holiday any time of the year.

About the location


Bellingham 7 miles; Alnwick 29 miles.

The delightful village of Otterburn, once the site of the famous 1388 victory of the Scots over the English, nestles close to the banks of the River Rede, between the hills and moors overlooking the North Tyne Valley. It offers excellent walking opportunities and is on a variety of popular routes for cyclists. Hadrian's Wall and the beautiful Kielder Forest and Waters are close by, providing fantastic fishing, horse riding and nature watching, amidst superb, tranquil countryside. Otterburn is the former home of a busy weaving industry, and the world famous Otterburn Mill marks the village's historic past. Nearby Bellingham, built predominantly from local stone and slate, houses a handful of pubs, shops and tea rooms and a highly regarded 18 hole golf course. Visit the nearby, majestic, stately homes of Wallington Hall and Cragside, or the historic market town of Alnwick, with its stunning castle and gardens, a mere 40 minute drive. Otterburn is a superb location for a relaxing holiday, any time of year.
