    “Worth a visit!”
    Brackenlea cottage is just wonderful! The cottage itself is well presented and the owner Sean was very helpful before and during our booking. The kitchen had everything needed for a short stay, the beds were comfy and the living room was cosy with the fan heater fireplace. The large selection of books and DVDs were a bonus as were the welcome crisps and biscuits after a drive from London ...

About the location

HARBOTTLE

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.
