  • "We had a lovely stay at Rose Cottage."

    Despite being only a one bedroom property there was ample space for us and our 4 dogs. The cottage was very nicely furnished, very clean, very comfortable and a very generous welcome package greeted us, as well as a generous amount of loo rolls and wood for the stove. The cottage was well located allow us to explore inland as well as heading to numerous beaches. We would definitely stay again.

    Absolutely fabulous in every way. Extremely nice owners who will do anything to help. Beautiful location with easy access to Rothbury and Alnwick. I would highly recommend Rose Cottage.

    Loved the log burner and super king bed which was very comfy. Also loved having a bath to luxuriate after long walks! It was well placed to explore the area.

  • "Rose cottage is well situated to explore the beautiful beaches and history that Northumberland offers."

    The cottage is well equipped for all your needs, it is clean, tidy and very comfortable and has the added bonus of a log fire when required. Plenty of dog walks within a few minutes of the cottage. The owner Ian, is extremely pleasant and has a wealth of knowledge for places of interest. My wife and me and two dogs enjoyed an excellent stay.

  • "If we could give 6 stars we would!"

    What a fantastic , beautiful, well equipped cottage. High end finishes throughout. A massive comfy bed with lovely linen and big fluffy towels. When we arrived the power was off due to a storm. The owners could not do enough for us from offering to pay for a meal at a local pub and move us to another house. The neighbours were so lovely and came round offering help and candles! Fortunately the power came back on quickly and we didn’t have to move. The cottage was spotlessly clean and no hint of any dog smells. The garden was really secure for the dogs. Ideally situated for lots of local beaches, Alnwick very close and if you have a National Trust card Cragside house is only 3 miles from the house. Lots of local dog walks nearby. The road was no issue at all and we slept soundly every night and it’s so dark you can see all the stars. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise too!. We have had a fantastic week away and will definitely return.

  • "Good location for Cragside (National Trust) and Alnwick and within an hour’s drive of the coast."

    We had a wonderful boat trip to see seals and seabirds on the Farne Islands. The owners thoughtfully provided information about local walks, the tides for Holy Island, and a lovely welcome pack including a parking disc! The bed is huge and comfy but the chest of drawers in the photo had been removed and we missed it! The shower was efficient, and we appreciated the non- slip mat provided but the washbasin is slow to empty. The one thing we really missed was a teapot!

  • "There’s everything you need here for a lovely holiday."

    We were there for two weeks, and were supplied with fresh bedding, towels, bath mat, and tea towels after our first week. The previous comments about the busy road were, in my opinion, not called for. The cottage has triple glazing and this made the road very quiet. The cottage was as advertised, and very well kept, and clean. The welcome pack was above and beyond what we have normally received. There was milk, sugar, coffee, chocolates, and wine. If I had to be picky I would say that the sofa was not overly comfortable, but that would be the only tiny niggle to the two week stay, and I would be more than happy to stay again.

    The cottage had everything we needed. The bedroom is very spacious with a comfy bed It has good wifi.

  • "The cottage was clean and fresh upon entering."

    The owners use of the space is well thought out. The new additions of the rug and new sofa helped keep the room vibrant and homely. A lovely welcome pack and a good stock of fire fuel added to this already beautiful cottage. Being so close to both Rothbury and Alnwick is useful for explorers and shopping, so to is the nearby Thrunton Woods. The road can be busy but with such noise cancelling windows you don’t notice, a great feature even when contending with the big log carrying wagons. We have been here 3 times and we will be back 3+ more!! The cottage, the area and the locals all combine to make this an ideal holiday accommodation.

  • "We stayed at Rose Cottage in November (apologies for the late review) and had a fantastic time."

    Our host was away on a trip at the time of our stay but made sure we knew he was available if ever we needed anything and was truly one of the most accommodating hosts we’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The cottage itself has everything you need for a brilliant stay, though we did spend a lot of time exploring the lovely areas surrounding it. There’s some beautiful history just on your doorstep and some fantastic wanders to be had. We especially loved the castle ruins just a short stroll away from the cottage. Unfortunately our time at the cottage was cut short due to a emergency at home but we can’t wait to return, this time hopefully with our pup in tow who I know will love exploring with us! ~ Overall a wonderful experience made even more pleasant by an extremely accommodating owner. Thank you! ~

    Don't let the size put you off from booking - this place has been so well planned and thought out it has everything you need! It was perfect for us and our 4 dogs. The kitchen has all you need for cooking decent meals and plenty of room to prepare - we had a full cooked roast with ease! The sitting area is cosy and the log burner is a lovely treat after long days out walking and exploring. Upstairs the master bed is huge and extremely comfy within a lovely room and great bathroom too. Triple glazing throughout which helped with being next to the road, however we hardly noticed any traffic anyway. A gravel fenced garden was perfect for the dogs to mooch about in and allocated parking for two cars was convenient too. The owners went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel welcome and ensure we had a good stay. The welcome pack and ready supply of fuel for the fire was outstanding. Recommendations of local attractions and places to walk the dogs were given and we tried them all! We would 100% recommend Rose Cottage and will certainly be booking again! Thank you so much for making our holiday one to remember!

We took our two dogs with us, and the little enclosed garden was perfect for them to snoof about in. The owners popped by the day we arrived to, very kindly, bring us some more firewood and coal, and recommended lots of dog friendly places to visit, and showed us how to use the heating. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. If I had to say something slightly negative, it would be the busy A road adjacent to the cottage was rather noisy in the mornings and the lorries rushing past woke us up - but it was nice to be up early and get out and do things!
