    “A delightful and beautiful house.”

    We very much enjoyed staying there. The owner was perfect - friendly and available if needed but never intrusive. The village is very quiet with one pub (with a restaurant) open just three days a week. But this didn't matter. The house is very well situated for day trips and walks. Hardian's wall and Vindolanda are near by and the drive there on the switchback roman roads was part of the experience.

    We very much enjoyed staying there. The owner was perfect - friendly and available if needed but never intrusive. The village is very quiet with one pub (with a restaurant) open just three days a week. But this didn't matter. The house is very well situated for day trips and walks. Hardian's wall and Vindolanda are near by and the drive there on the switchback roman roads was part of the experience. Nearby is Rothbury with a nature reserve on the way where we walked beside the lake to see the birds - and particularly hear the calls, and even feel the down draft from wings as they flew overhead. Further afield was Alnwick with a truly magnificent contemporary garden. We also went to Lindisfarne and down the coast to Alnmouth and Amble (a beautiful and wild coastline). All in all - highly recommended.

The property

A delightful Grade II listed property, in a wonderful peaceful setting, on the edge of the village of Elsdon.

Townfoot Cottage adjoins the owner's farmhouse and was originally an old farm cow byre.

Decorated, equipped and furnished to very high standards throughout, the cottage has retained much character with rugs over stone flagged and wooden floors.

The bathroom has an L-shaped shower bath, offering the best of both - a proper shower with glass hinged shower door, and a spacious deep bath for long hot soaks after a days walking.

A tall chrome towel radiator keeps the room toasty warm.

The cottage enjoys views over Elsdon Burn towards the hills beyond, and is excellently situated for enjoying a variety of walks, including Hadrian's Wall, coastal paths and the Cheviot and Simonside hills.

Boasting lots of activities for the outdoors enthusiasts to enjoy, the area is great for watersports and fishing.

Also secure storage is available for those bringing bikes on which to explore this lovely part of the world and enjoy the many cycle routes and mountain biking trails in the area.

A warm and comfortable retreat from which to discover this ancient and fascinating area.

About the location

ELSDON

Otterburn 2 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.

Set in the heart of the Cheviots, on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, the unspoilt village of Elsdon lies in a sheltered hollow amidst beautiful fells, rolling moorland and woodlands. The area is steeped in history, and has numerous listed sites within the Parish, dominated by the fortified Pele Tower. The village of Elsdon has been described as the perfect Northumbrian village, with an ancient parish church, an extensive village green and the remains of a Motte and Bailey Castle, as well as the famous gibbet at the summit of Gallow Hill, with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. There are several pubs within a 15-minutes drive of the cottage, including The Redesdale Arms, a 16th century coaching inn known locally as the 'First and Last' Inn on the way to Scotland. There is a good range of shops in the small but attractive market town of Rothbury within easy driving distance, and with the National Cycle Route (No 68) running close by, this is spectacular walking and cycling country. A peaceful area full of interest to explore!
