The property

Rothbury 1 mile.

A wonderful detached cottage situated in the heart of Whitton, beautifully furnished with a magnificent rural outlook to elevate your holiday experience.

Perfect for couples or a small family, this retreat is a homely and inviting base to start your adventures from, or a relaxing spot to unwind after a fun filled afternoon.

The front door leads through to a lovely kitchen with stunning features and a breakfast bar for a warm cup of tea in the early hours.

The opposite side of the room houses an open-plan living area, complemented by two sumptuous sofas and a woodburner-effect fire for those cosy nights in.

After the sun sets, you can make use of the dining table, including seating for six people, so everyone can come together and enjoy an appetising meal in comfort.

Two bedrooms, a double and a single, are presented to a standard of quality with neutral décor and a classic overtone.

The shower room is neat and immaculate, with contemporary fittings and a modern theme that flows throughout.

For a special touch, stairs lead up to a third bedroom, an elegant hideaway overlooked by Velux windows that welcome natural views inside.

An exceptional bathroom accompanies this room, boasting an all-white suite, joined by a bath with a handheld shower.

In your leisure time wander out towards Rothbury, with its selection of shops and amenities.
