The property

Rothbury 6.6 miles. Set amidst luscious countryside in the quaint village of Ewesley near Rothbury, lies this outstanding, detached property, Fontburn Farmhouse. This stunning, stone-fronted cottage rests near Fontburn reservoir, perfect for peaceful walks, and hosts five beautiful bedrooms for a family or 10 friends looking to explore the rolling countryside of Northumberland. Follow the circular driveway to reach private parking spaces, here you can soak in the setting as you unload the vehicle with ease. Step through the duck-egg door into the spacious hallway, with a storage cupboard to house your coats, ready for an adventure. Moving through the property, admire the underfloor heating beneath your feet as you find the open-plan living space, well-presented and the perfect place to socialise. Keep the designated chef company in the kitchen area, as you sip a glass of wine at the island and make use of the American fridge/freezer to store your favourite treats. When dinner is served, gather around the dining table to tuck-into heart-warming meals and chat amongst yourselves about the splendid time away. The living space also offers a toasty woodburning stove to set a relaxing ambiance, and a sofa to enjoy the TV. Discover the larger sitting room, where you can unwind on the plush sofas with a good book at hand or flicker through the TV as the crackling woodburning stove gently heats the room. Throw open the French doors leading to the pretty garden, enclosed with glass panels and offering furniture to bask in the final moments of the sun. After a day splashing in the mud, make use of the handy utility room to freshen your holiday clothes. As the evening draws to a close, locate the two ground-floor double bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms so you don't need to worry about morning queues! Climb upstairs to the first floor to choose between the master bedroom with a king-size bed, en-suite bathroom and a TV for a movie night under the covers, as well as another double room and a handsome twin room. In the morning, enjoy an invigorating rinse in the shower room, where you can leave your towel on the heated rail for a warm embrace afterwards. If you can tear yourself away from this fabulous home, visit Fontburn reservoir, a lovely trail to follow with a great play park with a zip line just a ten minute walk way. Pick up fresh produce for your self-catering holiday from Northumberland Free Range Organic Poultry, a short drive away. Jump in the car and head to the nearby attractions, where you can unveil the history of the wealthy family that once lived in the National Trust site of Wallington, tour the medieval monastery of Brinkburn Priory and Manor House, or treat the younger ones to a day at Northumberland Country Zoo. Visit the charming town of Alnwick, home to an iconic 12th century castle, The Bailiffgate Museum for fascinating facts or spend an afternoon at a poisonous garden for a unique experience. Be sure to take advantage of the close proximity to Northumberland's National Park for unspoilt scenery and a plethora of trails to sample. For a recuperating escape, treat your loved ones to a stay at Fontburn Farmhouse.

About the location


Alnwick 11.8 miles; Alnmouth 16.1 miles; Morpeth 17.3 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.
