  • "What a lovely cottage."

    So very clean and comfortable and a smashing welcome pack. The views from all the windows are amazing and Rothbury such a good place to visit. On the Saturday Highland Pipers were playing there. The Italian and Indian restaurants are particularly good. National Trust Cragside was just up the road - we went twice to take the lovely 6 mile carriage drive. Devastation of the trees was dreadful after Storm Arwen. Also ventured up the coast to all the seaside villages and further down the coast to Cullercoats which was surprisingly nice. Cresswell Bay very nice too. In all, wonderful scenery all the way round and you will not be disappointed with all the amenities in Shepherd's Cottage

  • "Very clean, lovely area and a great stay."

    Would’ve liked to have known that the cottage was in a complex of other holiday cottages as we were looking for something a little more secluded and it’s not in the description but a good week had by all and a great rental.

  • "Spectacular scenery all round the beautiful Shepherd's cottage with everything you need in a peaceful area with attractions nearby."

    The walk into Rothbury takes around 15 minutes across a golf course and riverside. Rothbury itself is very pretty with all the shops and pubs you might want. Would not hesitate in returning and recommending this cottage.

  • "Shepherds Cottage is a beautifully appointed comfortable place to stay."

    It is the second time we have stayed in this cottage and love the views and peaceful location. Everything you could possibly need is provided and is very much a home from home. In fact we love it so much we have booked it for next year too!

  • "Stunning! The pictures do not do it justice."

    The views are spectacular. You step through the door and the space is a lot bigger than expected. The light pours in through the triple aspect. We loved our time there and never realised what a beautiful county it is. Do not hesitate to book.

  • "Great cottage, great location."

    Everything you need on holiday is provided and they have covered all eventualities!! Location is great, easy to walk into the nearest village which has great amenities. We took our dog along and he was safe in the enclosed garden and was made to feel welcome with the hosts providing towels, throws and even poo bags for him!! We enjoyed it that much, we are booking to go back next year!

    Apart from the location being great to visit lots of different beautiful places, the cottage could not be better equipped for all your needs and home comforts. We hope to visit again

    Beds are extremely uncomfortable as the mattress on all of them were too hard. This was the only downside.

    A perfect base for touring the coast and countryside. The property was finished with comfort and elegance, many thanks.

  • "Lovely warm cottage with everything you could need."

    About 20 minutes walk to Rothbury across the golf course and a field. Lots of good dog friendly pubs there. One slight negative is the headroom in the upstairs bedroom (which is beautiful), I know it does mention this in the description but I am only 5 foot and I did bang my head several times!

  • "We have just enjoyed a fabulous week at Shepherds Cottage and our first time to Northumberland."

    We were very lucky with weather but even on rainy days the cottage is so comfortable with the only complaint being my daughter banging her head as she slept upstairs with sloping ceilings! Cottage was spotless and well located, also very peaceful. Will definitely come back

  • "Shepherd’s Cottage is a wonderful base for a holiday in Northumberland and there is so much to see and do in the area."

    The cottage is extremely well-equipped and was more than spacious enough for a family of four. The welcome pack was very much appreciated on arrival and it was nice to have a personal welcome. We loved the uninterrupted views from the cottage and enjoyed the walk across the golf course to Rothbury.

    However the cottage is very dog friendly, in a fabulous spot and with easy access on foot to the village....but still remote enough for peace and quiet and privacy.

  • "Shepherds Cottage is by far the best cottage we have ever stayed in."

    The cleanliness, style, design, comfort was incredible. It was like a home from home. The best of furnishings have been used and the location is to die for. Sitting in the gorgeous open plan ground floor we had a different stunning view out every one of the 4 windows and French Doors. We will certainly recommend this to our friends and will be back again in future years.

About the location


Alnwick 10 miles.

The capital of Coquetdale, Rothbury lies on the north bank of the famous salmon and trout river, the Coquet, and is dominated by the heather clad Simonside Hills. It is an attractive, small market town and its proximity to Northumberland’s National Park ensures excellent local walking. Stone houses, typical of the region, line the town’s steep main streets and there is a good range of shops on offer. With a golf course, public tennis courts and cycle hire close by and a variety of great houses and gardens to explore, including Cragside, Alnwick Castle (home of the Duke of Northumberland), Wallington Hall and a host of famous castles, this great location has plenty to offer. Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Reservoir and Forest and the sandy beaches and dunes of the coast are also within easy driving distance.
