    “The ideal cosy cottage to get away from it all”

    Spent a lovely half-term week at Drover's Rest. It's warm and very well equipped. The owners made us feel very welcome without being intrusive. The cottage is easy to find, being well signposted and handily placed near to a main road, but no traffic noise at all. Spectacular views and incredibly clear skies at night. Plenty to see & do in the local area, the cottage is also within reach of Hadrian's Wall, Cragside and the many coastal attractions. It's also dog-friendly which is a major plus.

About the location

OTTERBURN

Bellingham 7 miles; Alnwick 29 miles.

The delightful village of Otterburn, once the site of the famous 1388 victory of the Scots over the English, nestles close to the banks of the River Rede, between the hills and moors overlooking the North Tyne Valley. It offers excellent walking opportunities and is on a variety of popular routes for cyclists. Hadrian's Wall and the beautiful Kielder Forest and Waters are close by, providing fantastic fishing, horse riding and nature watching, amidst superb, tranquil countryside. Otterburn is the former home of a busy weaving industry, and the world famous Otterburn Mill marks the village's historic past. Nearby Bellingham, built predominantly from local stone and slate, houses a handful of pubs, shops and tea rooms and a highly regarded 18 hole golf course. Visit the nearby, majestic, stately homes of Wallington Hall and Cragside, or the historic market town of Alnwick, with its stunning castle and gardens, a mere 40 minute drive. Otterburn is a superb location for a relaxing holiday, any time of year.
