  • "What a lovely cosy house, lovely welcome by host and basket of treats."

    House is so close to everything, walks shops and pubs. Home away from home.

  • "A beautiful home."

    So nice of the owner to greet us personally. Amazing welcome hamper and toiletries. The house was beautifully appointed - everything you could possibly need. Lovely comfy beds. Ideal location - 2 mins to shops and pubs ( we recommend the Turks Head); few mins walk to the river for a pleasant walk. Rothbury itself is a good centre for exploring the North East and Scottish Borders. Would definitely highly recommend No. 14

  • "The property is well equipped and in a good location."

    A real home from home. The owner was very friendly and a thoughtful welcome pack provided. Our only comments would be that the front and side bedrooms require blackout blinds as the street lights outside shine all night and kept my son awake. We personally found all the bed mattresses very uncomfortable so didn’t have a good night sleep all week. We ended up using all the beds. We ate in most night so a dishwasher would be good, there is space in the kitchen and for a family it’s a positive to provide one now days. My final comment which the owner cannot do anything about and that would stop us staying in Rothbury again generally is the Church clock climes on the hour all night and this also contributed to our lack of sleep. The property is very close to the church. With the window open it is even louder so had to close the windows at night. Thank you.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday based in our fabulous accommodation."

    It was equipped with everything we needed and beautifully decorated and furnished. The garden is completely secure so extremely safe for any size of dog. It is close to a lovely river walk and the shops, pubs and restaurants are all a sort walk away. The central location makes it ideal for exploring Northumberland and the Scottish borders. We met the lovely owners, who gave us a welcome gift of food, wine and toiletries. It was perfect.

    Excellent welcome pack. In the centre of Rothbury but with private parking by the front door. 4/5 minute walk and you are either by the river or on the main street. There are lot's of small shops covering most of what you might need. We were greeted by the property owner when we arrived and she was both welcoming and helpful.

    Outstandingly clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped. We loved the quiet, private location, yet just off the Hugh Street through Rothbury, with all its lovely shops, catering for your every need. Rothbury itself is absolutely charming with its riverside walks and just a stone’s throw from the National Trust property, Cragside. We received a personal welcome from the owner just after our arrival and a very welcome bottle of wine in the fridge! Highly recommended, and we would love to return.

    It was in an ideal location with good local amenities. It was vey comfortable and the neighbours were friendly and helpful. We suggest that you warn visitors that the nearest petrol is in Alnwick, followed by Morpeth. These are both about 11 miles from the cottage so one is advised not to arrive with an empty tank. The cottage was nearly perfect, our only suggestions are: A steel to sharpen the knives A tea cozy and A grab rail in the shower for elderly and less agile visitors. A lovely spot for a holiday.

With a golf course, public tennis courts and cycle hire close by and a variety of great houses and gardens to explore, including Cragside, Alnwick Castle (home of the Duke of Northumberland), Wallington Hall and a host of famous castles, this great location has plenty to offer.
