Really good value and excellent quality accommodation. Getting there was ok with Sat Nav and the instructions given. Contact with the owner before hand was excellent even offering to get anything we needed in advance as she was visiting the cottage the same morning!! Key safe for picking up keys and welcome supplies included tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and sugar as well as milk, cake, biscuits and some other sundries. Toilet roll, paper towels, soap and even shower gel all supplied as well as bedding and towels. All very good quality and beds being made up was so welcoming. The accommodation has no telephone signal at all - a landline was available with a trust system in use for payment. As travelling with three teenagers the full sky package and excellent wifi was appreciated. Travelled with two dogs, it was requested that dogs do not get up on furniture or upstairs to the bedroom which was reasonable. The bedrooms were well set out and I loved the beds (and bedding). the cottage has everything you could need for a stay. The induction hob gave us a bit of a challenge but there are instructions available for all equipment. Liked the log burning stove with logs made available for at least one fire. We used it one night for the experience rather than needing the heat. Used as a base to visit other sights in Northumberland including Alnwick Castle and Seahouses with a boat trip around the Fearne islands that even the dogs could join us on. The cottage does not have any outdoor space (was made clear at booking) but good range of walks very close by. Very very rural with the nearest shop (co-op) in Rothbury 30 mins by car (also good selections of small shops) we ate at three wheat heads in Thropton (20 mins by car) good with big portions and reasonable value if not a long wait the night we were there. All in all, would recommend this excellent accommodation in a great location with all you could need for your stay.

About the location
Alwinton 1.5 miles; Rothbury 9 miles.
The delightful village of Harbottle is situated in the Upper Coquet Valley, between the grassy Cheviots and the more rugged Harbottle Hills. Rural Harbottle has an old village pub and a ruined medieval castle, and is conveniently located in the Northumberland National Park, from where you will find the Simonside Hills, which provide some of the best walking and cycling in the county. Take a walk to the ancient Drake Stone believed to be endowed with supernatural powers or seek out Gallows Edge where many a poor soul met their end at the hands of the Lord of Redesdale. Nearby Rothbury has an array of excellent shops, tea rooms, a golf course, public tennis court, cycle hire and of course the famous Cragside Hall to explore. A short drive away and there's more history to explore in the form of wonderful castles and endless beaches of the Heritage Coastline, plus a little further afield are the beautiful Kielder Water and Hadrian’s Wall.
