Thank you also for the lovely bottle of wine and chocolates we received on arrival a welcome bonus. We had a wonderful time at Townfoot Cottage, so relaxing and did not want to leave, it is a little Gem in a lovely location with walks straight from the doorstep. We definitely will return. Thank you again Sarah.

The property

A delightful Grade II listed property, in a wonderful peaceful setting, on the edge of the village of Elsdon. Townfoot Cottage adjoins the owner's farmhouse and was originally an old farm cow byre. Decorated, equipped and furnished to very high standards throughout, the cottage has retained much character with rugs over stone flagged and wooden floors. The bathroom has an L-shaped shower bath, offering the best of both - a proper shower with glass hinged shower door, and a spacious deep bath for long hot soaks after a days walking. A tall chrome towel radiator keeps the room toasty warm. The cottage enjoys views over Elsdon Burn towards the hills beyond, and is excellently situated for enjoying a variety of walks, including Hadrian's Wall, coastal paths and the Cheviot and Simonside hills. Boasting lots of activities for the outdoors enthusiasts to enjoy, the area is great for watersports and fishing. Also secure storage is available for those bringing bikes on which to explore this lovely part of the world and enjoy the many cycle routes and mountain biking trails in the area. A warm and comfortable retreat from which to discover this ancient and fascinating area. Elsdon’s pub, the ‘Bird in Bush’ is only five minutes’ walk away and is right on the village green. It is open most days for food and drink.

About the location

ELSDON

Otterburn 2 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.

Set in the heart of the Cheviots, on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, the unspoilt village of Elsdon lies in a sheltered hollow amidst beautiful fells, rolling moorland and woodlands. The area is steeped in history, and has numerous listed sites within the Parish, dominated by the fortified Pele Tower. The village of Elsdon has been described as the perfect Northumbrian village, with an ancient parish church, an extensive village green and the remains of a Motte and Bailey Castle, as well as the famous gibbet at the summit of Gallow Hill, with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. There are several pubs within a 15-minutes drive of the cottage, including The Redesdale Arms, a 16th century coaching inn known locally as the 'First and Last' Inn on the way to Scotland. There is a good range of shops in the small but attractive market town of Rothbury within easy driving distance, and with the National Cycle Route (No 68) running close by, this is spectacular walking and cycling country. A peaceful area full of interest to explore!
