    “Nice, well equipped apartment.”

    We enjoyed our stay here and it is in a good location for exploring Rothbury. There is a fair bit of noise from outside as it’s only single glazed, which might bother some people, but it didn’t spoil our stay. The bar below was noisiest at the weekend not surprisingly but was usually quiet just after 10.30pm and didn’t cause us any problems. The freeview signal was awful and could really do with being a smart tv. The immersion heater didn’t work and I reported it to the owner but nothing ...

    We enjoyed our stay here and it is in a good location for exploring Rothbury. There is a fair bit of noise from outside as it’s only single glazed, which might bother some people, but it didn’t spoil our stay. The bar below was noisiest at the weekend not surprisingly but was usually quiet just after 10.30pm and didn’t cause us any problems. The freeview signal was awful and could really do with being a smart tv. The immersion heater didn’t work and I reported it to the owner but nothing was done during our stay. It was ok seeing as we had an electric shower and just boiled a kettle to wash up. Overall it was a pleasant place to stay

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.

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.
