Cottages in Rothbury

The traditional market town of Rothbury is a great base for a self-catering holiday and our Rothbury cottages offer easy access to both the Northumberland National Park, the Simonside Hills and The Cheviots. 

Sitting on the banks of the River Croquet, Rothbury is home to some excellent shops selling local produce, cafes and pubs and has a full calendar of events throughout the year with music festivals, street, food and craft festivals. 

Known as the Gateway to the Northumberland National Park, Rothbury is a great base for a walking holiday so be sure to pack your boots. Head to the nearby Simonside Hills and take the circular walking route to the summit - the 360-degree views are far-reaching and take in the North Sea coast and the Cheviot Hills. Alternatively, simply kick off your shoes and enjoy a luxury escape to the peaceful Coquet Valley, where the river flows through open meadows and wild moorland and into Rothbury. This area of National Park is teeming with wildlife, home to red grouse, wild goat and red squirrels. It’s also a designated International Dark Sky Park perfect for stargazing, you can see stars and constellations for miles with little or no light pollution, and if you’re lucky you might even spot planets!

History buffs should head to Cragside House, famous for its Rhododendron display and maze. Step back in time at this National Trust property, a great place for families with some 30 miles of footpaths, a large adventure play park, lake and charming riverside walks. The beautiful formal garden has an iron bridge and there are acres of parkland to explore. Cragside House was the former home of the Victorian inventor, Lord William Armstrong and was the first house in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity. Visitors can enter the interactive Power House and generate their own electricity… an education for both adults and children alike!

Rothbury is a fantastic springboard for all types of coast and countryside adventures, due to its unique position in the heart of Northumberland. The endless network of walks and trails suitable for a variety of abilities make this region popular with walkers and cyclists and golfing, fishing and water sports are all readily accessible. It’s also a great choice for a dog-friendly holiday with many self-catering cottages to choose from.
