  • "1 Rodham Rigg cottage is a small, lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings."

    Off the beaten track and in a very peaceful & pretty spot. The cottage is very clean & well equipped. Comfy beds, a woodburner for chilly evenings, a welcome pack which was much appreciated. Everything you need for a relaxing, quiet and revitalising break. We loved our 4 night stay and the cottage was a great base to explore the glorious Northumberland coast and countryside from. Karen was very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely go back and highly recommend the cottage. We saw so much wildlife, it was amazing - hares, rabbits, an owl, lots of pheasants and partridges as well as the sheep. A truly magical spot for those who love the great outdoors.

  • "A lovely little cottage surrounded by amazing peaceful views."

    The cottage was like a home from home well equipped with everything we needed (and the welcome basket was a lovely little bonus too). The owners were extremely helpful too and were on hand if we needed anything.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Roddam Rigg cottage."

    The accommodation is very comfortable with everything you need for a home from home stay. You are out in the middle of beautiful countryside- peace and wildlife and yet it is not far by car to the main road. There is lots to see, whether you love coast or countryside. The log burner was much appreciated after a day exploring! Thank you to Karen for her hospitality.

    The views are beautiful. The Cottage is not too far from local attractions. Owners are warm and welcoming & very helpful.

  • "A lovely cottage set in peaceful surroundings."

    We had our own huge garden which was ideal for sitting out in the sunshine after a long day sightseeing. The garden was very secure so we didn't have to worry about our dog wandering off. The accommodation was very comfortable although the bathroom was a bit tiny and the toilet was fitted too close to the wall. The welcome package was brilliant, everything was provided for our needs. I would definitely stay here again and will mention to friends who want to visit the area.

  • "A lovely cottage that is fairly remote and away from general light pollution and thus when you get a clear night sky you can appreciate the magnificence of the night sky and stars."

    The only negatives were the small fridge (being remote a bigger fridge would have been nice) and the bed was rather soft for our liking, otherwise fine.

  • "We had a lovely stay here."

    The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The welcome pack was the best we have had with the fresh fruit being particularly appreciated. The isolated location made itvperfect for seeing wildlife, especially hares and the local barn owl. It was an ideal centre for visits - Hadrian's Wall, Holy Island, Cragside, Bamburgh Castle, Wallington. We also found good Italian and Indian restaurants in Alnwick. Highly recommended.

  • "A lovely small well equipped and immaculately clean cottage in an idyllic setting."

    The host,Karen, provided a very generous welcome basket and was always on hand if we needed anything. It’s a great location for resident wildlife, we had hare in the garden and one morning a flock of over a hundred field fare in the pasture next to us. Do not be deterred by the location, the roads to the cottage are very quiet and easily navigated. We have no hesitation in recommending it.

  • "A comfortable, well equipped cottage for a relaxing break."

    We spent Christmas tucked away in the lovely cottage. The owners trimmed the cottage and put up a tree for our stay. A large welcome package of essentials and treats were a welcome surprise. A large comfortable bed awaits after a long day spent exploring the area. The kitchen was well equipped to handle our Christmas dinner with all the trimmings too. A great location for exploring the coast and countryside around the North east of Northumbria, with the Scottish border towns not far away too. There was plenty of wildlife in the are too, Deer, Hares, Birds of prey amongst the many things we saw. If your looking for a rural cottage in a quiet location, but with access to the many attractions in the area, with beautiful dark skies to star gaze too, then I would highly recommend this location.

  • "It was further from the main road than we had anticipated."

    It was not a problem as there are two roads leading up to the cottage and they are quite well maintained. The plus is that you stay in the middle of the glorious Northumberland countryside in complete peace only surrounded by one or two farms and the wildlife. With good Wi-Fi and a good mobile signal it was a very relaxing break.

  • "Spotlessly clean, all to a very high standard, Karen and Michael very welcoming."

    Extremely peaceful and convenient base from which to explore the area. It's a smallish cottage, with no room for a kitchen table/ dining table. But, as a party of 3 adults, the breakfast bar was the only aspect which was a bit cramped for us. Again, as 3 adults, a slightly larger additional saucepan and/ or steamer would have been useful for us. And perhaps a teapot. But, other than that, very well equipped. Otherwise, a perfect and very cosy, comfortable home-from-home: a pleasure to return to after a day out!

    It was very clean, comfortable and well-kept, with good amenities. A generous welcome basket awaited us on arrival, and the host was really friendly and helpful. The good-sized enclosed garden was excellent for relaxing after a day out (and for our dog to play ball!) and it's very good at night too for star gazing.

  • "Lovely clean remote cottage, very comfortable."

    We really enjoyed our stay there it’s an amazing area. A couple of things to improve stay would be more kitchen supplies like a grater and egg cups especially as fresh eggs were on offer. Also access to a washing machine and dryer as its remote walks are muddy, clothes might need a swill through and somewhere to dry. Generally tho a wonderful get a way from the rat race!!

    A great place to get away from it all. Lovely big and completely enclosed garden for the dog. Important for us was great WiFi and mobile signal. Nice walk to a lake. It is a couple of miles up a narrow country lane and 15 minutes from Wooler where you can find co-op, take-aways and pub/restaurants. Not to far from Alnwick and huge beach at Alnmouth. Definitely recommended and look forward to returning in the future.

The property

Wooler 7.3 miles.

Surrounded by open countryside and at the base of the Cheviot Hills on Roddam Farm is this rustic end-terrace cottage, 1 Roddam Rigg Cottage.

Boasting access to a private lake, along with walking and cycling trails, and within easy reach of the Northumberland National Park, this is a brilliant dwelling for a family of three wanting to get away from it all.

As you pull up to the property, you can spot the many sheep dotted throughout the fields, before parking in a private off-road parking space.

Ascend the steps to the entrance of the stone-built cottage and be welcomed into a charming sitting room; this is a wonderful spot to respire with the family around the Smart TV and toasty multi-fuel stove.

After enjoying a movie with your group, continue through to the kitchen/diner to prepare dinner with its ample appliances, to be enjoyed at the close-by breakfast bar.

Make your way upstairs to bed and choose between two appealing bedrooms to enjoy a well-earned rest in; one being a king-size with abundant storage and stylish, yellow touches, the other being a single with fabulous views out to the fields and warm, orange accents.

The shower room is also on this floor, with a walk-in shower for you to wash away days of walking and climbing in.

The spacious garden is a superb space for relaxation, unwind on the selection of seating as your little one and furry friends stretch their legs on the lawn; the garden is also home to handy bike storage.

A fantastic holiday can be achieved without travelling far, despite being in a secluded area, you can walk along the private footpath to two lakes where you can savour a lakeside picnic or walk and cycle the day away.

Head north to the town of Wooler to find your amenities along with ample hiking trails; enjoy a drink at the popular Anchor Inn and Riverside Bar, before picking up your essentials from the convenience store and walking through Wooler Common to Humbleton Hill.

Get even more involved in the outdoors and nature, and venture into the centre of the Northumberland National Park where you can take the family to view the mystical Hareshaw Linn Waterfall, visit the famous Sycamore Gap tree or stargaze at one of the park's many dark skies sites.

The market town of Alnwick makes for a fabulous day out for history fans, with the Alnwick Castle, one of the UK's largest inhabited castles, the Fusiliers Museum of Northumberland and Bailiffgate Museum.

Make the most of your access to the coast and continue to Alnmouth, a picturesque village that showcases a long, golden beach and is a great place for golfing, tearooms and backs onto the Northumberland Coastal Walk.

For even more to see and do, embark on the coastal path to the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; stop at Bamburgh on the way, with the Farne Islands and Holy Island waiting to be explored.

A fantastic break awaits at 1 Roddam Rigg Cottage.
