  • “We enjoyed our stay at Simonside however the apartment felt very cold and damp/musty on arrival with a strong chemical smell which persisted throughout our stay despite having windows open to air the rooms.”


    We wondered whether this was caused by building work in the Bar below. There were some minor niggles which could do with fixing...... • Toilet seat was loose and moved and the shower/bath was very slow to empty • Grill on the oven didn't seem to work very well and had to resort to a different method of cooking. • TV kept losing stations and sound bar didn't appear to work • Living flame fire not usable and replaced with electric heater. Some of the photographs in the listing are out of date and could do with updating. The property is in a good position right at the centre of the town/village but a little noisy in the morning which is to be expected because of the location.

Situated on the first floor, this property is an excellent space for those looking to explore the unspoilt countryside and coastline of Northumberland.

Look forward to spending your evenings in the spacious sitting room, boasting a delightful gas fire and exposed stonework, which gives the room a wealth of character.

The open-plan kitchen has a range of contemporary appliances, so you can easily rustle up a delicious, romantic and home-cooked meal, to be enjoyed at the dining table whilst discussing the day's events.

The property boasts a well-presented double bedroom, housing quality furnishings including bedside tables and lamps, ideal for some late night reading, whilst the red carpet adds a delightful splash of colour to the room.

The purpose built alcove in the main bedroom is designed for writers and muses alike, with views overlooking Rothbury and a writer’s bureau set up for creativity to flow or perhaps a relaxing cup of tea while gazing over the town.

The bathroom is an exceptional place, offering a Jacuzzi bath for you to relax after a tiring day and let those bubbling jets work their magic on those tired muscles.

About the location


Alnwick 10 miles.

The capital of Coquetdale, Rothbury lies on the north bank of the famous salmon and trout river, the Coquet, and is dominated by the heather clad Simonside Hills. It is an attractive, small market town and its proximity to Northumberland’s National Park ensures excellent local walking. Stone houses, typical of the region, line the town’s steep main streets and there is a good range of shops on offer. 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. Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Reservoir and Forest and the sandy beaches and dunes of the coast are also within easy driving distance.
